How to Fix a Pop-Up Sprinkler with Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO)

At Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) we pride ourselves in the ability to install, repair, and fix any type of sprinkler. However, we also are here to educate and help you feel the same pride in being able to repair your own sprinkler system. One call is all it would take for you receive our undivided attention and help, at (719) 357-6682. We’ll be helping you specifically with one of the more common sprinklers out there today; the pop-up sprinkler.

About the Pop-Up Sprinkler Head:

A pop-up sprinkler head is a sprinkler head that pops up out of the ground. It connects to the pipe by a nipple, or a 90 degree funny pipe that usually connects under the sprinkler head. The sprinkler head uses the water pressure to push up the center shaft, which then connects to the nozzle that sprays water. A Pop-up sprinkler head also has a rubber seal and a spring that helps slide the center shaft up and down. The nozzle on top can spray a radius from 0° to 360°, depending on the type of nozzle. Nozzles can either constantly spray a fan of water, or spray in small streams that slowly rotate. A pop-up sprinkler head is usually attached to a lateral line and can connect underneath or on the side if it’s a longer head.

Watch this video to learn more about the Pop-Up Sprinkler components, and this video for an overview of the Pop-Up Sprinkler.

Pop-up Sprinkler Dr. Sprinkler Repair Colorado Springs

Parts that make up the Pop-Up Sprinkler:

Quality parts go into most Pop-up Sprinklers, including Rainbird, Hunter, Orbit, Toro, nozzles, rubber seals, springs, top screw covers, extensions, the 90 degree funny pipe, Dual orifice/Dual Spray, an MP Rotator, MP 1000-3000, adjustable nozzle, Rotary R-Vans, He-Van(finger Streams), Van-Adjustable, Side strip nozzles, a center strip nozzle, End strip, Quarter, Half, Full, High Efficiency, Arc, Bubbler, and 4,6,8,10,12,15,18,20 and 30 feet filters.

Pro and Cons of the Pop-Up Sprinkler:

Pop-up sprinkler heads can be raised or lowered easily and are also relatively cheap. They are versatile and can connect to most pipe fixtures. The nozzles can also be turned on and off if they have a filter, and the sprinkler heads themselves are installed underground. The heads require semi-frequent adjustment, only occasionally needing to be tended to.

Common Problems:

A major problem with Pop-up sprinklers is that they get broken from being stepped on, ran over, or worn down due to weathering. They can also clog anywhere from the line that feeds them up to the nozzle they spray out of. If a sprinkler constantly leaks it is the sprinkler valve that feeds the head that is the issue. The nipple or 90 degree funny pipe that connects the sprinkler head to the pipe can easily break or crack. Pressure can also be low from too many heads on one line, or valve.

How to Diagnosis Problems:

A call and visit from Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) would mitigate the problems you have with your pop-up sprinkler. Call us today at (719) 357-6682 to see if we can help you with any of the following problems, or if you need more help to find solutions:

  • The nozzle is either broken or clogged if a sprinkler head is not spraying correctly.
  • The sprinkler head stays up after watering; this means the rubber seal on the top of the sprinkler is going out.
  • If water is coming up from underneath the sprinkler, the connection is probably broken. When no or little water is coming out, there is a clog anywhere from the feed line to the head.
  • If a sprinkler is above the grass/dirt line before turning on, it is too high and must be lowered. Consequently, if the sprinkler head is too low while turning on, it needs to be raised higher.
  • If pressure across all heads are low check the flow control on the valve. If they are still low, consider replacing nozzles with low pressure nozzles, taking heads off, then adding them to another line, or adding a new valve.

How to Install or Repair:

There are certainly a lot of things that can go wrong with your sprinklers. Here are a few suggestions to potential problems:

  • Your nozzle and filter underneath may need to be replaced if a nozzle is broken or clogged. Simply unscrew the nozzle/filter, and screw a new one in.
  • If the sprinkler head is staying up after watering, the top of the head, or the entire head may need to be replaced, as they are usually the same price. If water is coming up from under the head, carefully dig a circle of dirt out from around the head, use a nipple extractor to unscrew the broken nipple if possible. However, when that may not a possibility, cut the fitting out of the pipe and put a new one in. Blow out any debris by turning the valve on and then screw a new nipple and head on.
  • Your sprinkler head may be clogged. As that happens, try unscrewing the nozzle first to see if debris comes out. If debris does come out, unscrew the whole head. The pipe controlling the head may be clogged and needs to be blown out if no debris comes out. If you are having trouble unclogging a system, try hooking a hose to the head, undoing the fitting right before the valve, and back-blowing it out.
  • A sprinkler head may be too low. Simply unscrew the head and either unscrew the nipple its attached to. If the head is connected to a funny pipe, add a nipple extender or lift the pipe. Your sprinkler head may be too high and you will need to unscrew the sprinkler head and either unscrew the nipple its attached to, reattach a lower one, or connect the head to funny pipe and move it so it can go lower than the feed pipe(if not already attach to funny pipe).
  • If pressure across all heads are low check the flow control on the valve. If they are still low consider replacing nozzles with low pressure nozzles, taking heads off, then adding them to another line, or adding a new valve.

Additional Tips and Tricks:

Try unscrewing a clogged nozzle and blowing out the debris using a small screwdriver. If you have a filter underneath the sprinkler head or nozzle, by screwing the center of the nozzle, you can shut it on or turn it off. Some repairs will require special tools.

3 ways to ensure a healthy, watered lawn with Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO)

At Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO), we know the old adage of “work smarter, not harder” is true, but we still do both if it means making your lawn look good. We are here year-round to serve our most important customer — you. The needs you have are what we focus on, and at the end of every job, or every day, we care that you are satisfied with our service.

However, we realize that you’ll also need to do some things for yourself to make your lawn look its best. Most of the watering you do to your lawn will be done by you, so here are some steps to take to make sure you’re watering your lawn the best way possible:

1. Water Early In the Day

This is probably and hopefully something you’ve heard before. By watering your lawn early in the day before the sun rises, you allow for the elements to do the most magic for your grass and soil. Your lawn will have enough moisture locked in the soil by the time the sun rises and evaporates remaining water. If you are unable to water your lawn before the sun comes up, the next best option is in the late afternoon. Watering too late at night keeps the water in the grass and soil, causing fungus and bacteria to grow.

2. Use Proper Sprinklers

An in-ground irrigation system with pop-up sprinklers is best for your lawn over the long term. These are connected to timers that automatically water your lawn with precise amounts of water at a particular time of day that you can change. Your best option if those aren’t available or installed is to purchase revolving, or pulsating sprinklers, like these ones here. If you’d like the best for your lawn, consider sprinkler installation from Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO). We offer helpful, quick and timely work at an affordable price. By getting and in-ground irrigation system installed, you would save more money in the long run, where your wallet and your lawn would thank you.

3. Water Twice a Week Maximum Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) Sprinkler Water

Ever heard of over-watering? It happens far too often, as most people think that more water is better for your growing lawn. The truth is, that it’s not. By watering too much, or too frequently, you can literally drown out the roots and soil patterns in your lawn. On the other hand, if you water too little, you might suffocate the root system in your grass, or fungus growth could become more common.

How Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) Can Help

We prescribe this article for more information on how to water your lawn smarter. In the meantime, if you think your lawn already looks the best that it can, guess again. There is always more to be done to ensure a quality, healthy, and green lawn. As mentioned at the beginning, at Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) we work harder and smarter than anyone else to make sure you are satisfied with the look and feel of your lawn.

Hire service or DIY? At Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) the answer is easy

Did you know that you have an important choice to make sooner rather than later? It’ll have consequences that could last a lifetime if you don’t choose carefully. You need to decide if you work on your lawn and your lawn sprinklers all by yourself, or hire some random company to do the work for you. What do you choose? What option is best? Ultimately, who do you trust? Yourself, or the top company in a spur of the moment Google search? At Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) we know the answer is clear, and you can find out for yourself by calling us at 719) 357-6682. We’ll also spell it out for you down below.

DIY Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) DIY trouble

The mentality to do things yourself has been around for a long time. Sure, you might save money in a few instances, and you might also learn a valuable lesson in how to fix something a time or two. However, DIY on your lawn and with your sprinklers carries a lot of sacrifice on part of your energy and your time. Are you ready for all of that? An unfortunate pro and con to doing it yourself is that all the work falls squarely on you. Some people are ready for that, but to the untrained individual, it can seem like there is more risk than reward. Even in using every inch of Google or YouTube, there can be more question marks raised instead of answers.

Say that you do tackle whatever lawn or sprinkler problem you have on your own. Did you also know that there is a whole range of things to do at every time and season of the year to adequately care for your lawn, even in chilly Colorado Springs? This article maps things out in great detail so you won’t miss a thing. Even if you feel like you’ve done all you can for your lawn, there is still more to be done around the clock.

Additionally, there are also things you need to do to maintain a healthy lawn! It’s one thing to water them, but lawn care maintenance is an entirely different thing. Here are some recommendations from Colorado Spring’s governmental offices in how to keep your lawn healthy that you won’t want to miss.

At the end of the day, doing your lawn care or working on your sprinkler system on your own puts a lot on your shoulders. There is too much to do in too little time, and you already have enough on your plate. This is where we come into the picture.

Hiring Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO) 

At Dr. Sprinkler Repair (Colorado Springs, CO), we understand that time is money, especially when it comes to your free time. The time that you’d need to spend in researching, traveling, buying, fixing, and finishing your DIY project is time that should be spent by doing something you love, and by being with the people that matter most to you. However, there is risk to hiring just anybody to work on something as valuable and energy-consuming as your lawn. Who do you trust? How do you know who you hire will do a good job?

We’ll let our reviews do the talking:

3 Ways a New Sprinkler System Will Help You!

At Dr. Sprinkler Colorado Springs we are known for our expert sprinkler repairs but something you may not know is that we also install brand new sprinkler systems! So, what are the advantages of getting an automatic sprinkler system installed by Dr. Sprinkler? 


More Family Time

Getting an automatic sprinkler system installed will save you a lot of time! We all know the struggles that come with trying to water your lawn on your own; constantly moving hoses, struggling to find the perfect spots on your lawn to water all of your grass, or getting up bright and early to water your grass before it gets too hot. Our technicians are experts at installing and adjusting sprinkler heads just right to make sure your lawn is totally covered and will set your timer to turn your sprinklers on right when you want them to. Avoiding all the hassles of watering on your own will free up time for you to go spend time with your family, doing the things you want to do instead of worrying about your lawn. 

Saves You Money

Anyone who has ever received a high water bill knows that the water we use isn’t cheap. According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, about 50% of the water we use to water our lawns is wasted. This is usually due to overwatering and watering things that don’t need to be watered (sidewalks, sheds, and fences just to name a few). Automatic sprinkler systems can be set to water only as long as your yard needs it, and automatic sprinkler heads are easy to adjust to cover just your lawn. This will save you a lot of water and in turn save you a lot of money! 


Adds Value to Your Home

If you’re looking to sell your home in El Paso County a new sprinkler system will definitely add some value. When people come and see your home not only will they notice how beautiful your lawn looks but they will realize how easy it can be for them to maintain that beauty. Installing an automatic sprinkler system is an investment that will pay for itself as long as it’s done correctly. That’s why it’s important to hire professionals, such as our techs at Dr. Sprinkler Colorado Springs, to make sure your sprinkler system is done right. 




So what are you waiting for? If you’re looking to save money and upgrade your home, call Dr. Sprinkler Colorado Springs at (719) 357-6682!
