A properly working automatic sprinkler system will keep your yard looking healthy all summer long while you focus on enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors. Occasionally, though, a malfunction in one of the parts of the system can cause problems. Broken sprinkler valves are probably the most common of these problems.
A broken sprinkler valve should be repaired as soon as a problem is detected. There are several reasons that a sprinkler valve can malfunction, so determining the cause will reveal whether a repair or replacement is needed.
Causes of Broken Valves
If a valve fails to turn on – The cause is usually an electrical or water supply issue. It’s usually best to rule out a water supply issue, which can be done by checking rest of your sprinkler valves. If no valves turn on, there’s a water supply issue. If only a single valve is not turning on, there’s an electrical issue.
If a valve fails to turn off – There are usually two main causes: debris clogging the valve or a bad diaphragm (rubber gasket) inside the valve that needs repairs.
Broken Valve Repairs
Whether a valve is failing to turn on or off, the malfunctioning part can often be repaired. If the issue is electrical, for example, the wires or solenoid can be reattached or replaced. If debris or a torn diaphragm is keeping the valve from shutting off, the debris can be cleaned and a new diaphragm installed.
These sprinkler valve repairs can save your system from more serious problem down the line and your yard green and healthy.
