While most sprinkler repair companies offer a list of generic services and never quite explain them. This is usually a sign that they really aren't confident in their ability to describe what they'll actually be doing. Our Los Angeles irrigation team isn't one of those. We know exactly what we're doing and there are some things that we do better than anyone in the business. Here they are:
Any sprinkler repair company worth its salt will carry replacement sprinkler heads on their repair trucks. The true professionals will not only carry all of the heads, they'll carry all of the tools to repair a head instead of making a full replacement. We are those professionals. Before we automatically rip out your existing sprinkler head and replace it, we'll do a full inspection of all the moving parts including the spring, the cap, riser and nozzle. If dirt has plugged any of these parts, we can clean it out and get the head working properly without needing to replace it. If it does need replacing, we carry every sprinkler head on the market in every riser size. We have enough of them on each truck to cover the area three times over. With us, sprinkler head repair is done fast and right!
Our Los Angeles sprinkler repair team can't stress the importance of a yearly blow out and winterization enough! A sprinkler system is a finely tuned series of components that can be thrown out of whack by even the smallest problem. Luckily most of the components are underground where the only potential issues come from the water supply – unless the pipes freeze. If there is any water left in the pipes, even a few drops, it can cause pipe joints to crack, risers to fracture and various other components to fail. A blow out will remove water from the system and winterizing the system will prevent any more water from getting in.
Having the right system in place to begin with can prevent the need for costly rerouting in the future. When our Los Angeles irrigation team designs a custom system for your home or business, we look years into the future to make sure that it will be able to grow with your landscape. Our team will design a zoning system that covers every different area of your lawn. We'll determine what the needs of your current (or proposed) vegetation and select the proper pop up heads and drip lines for each area. For large areas of turf we'll use rotary heads, for foundation plantings and flower beds soft spray heads and drip lines for larger bushes and trees.

Optimizing a sprinkler system can result in a better looking landscape while reducing maintenance and watering costs. Our Los Angeles sprinkler repair team is full of irrigation control specialists who can help you determine where your system is failing you. Even if your yard looks great, having a water usage audit can help you water more economically. After all, part of the reason that sprinkler systems are so popular is that they can deliver just the right amount of water to your landscape without guesswork.
Our team will complete an initial coverage analysis to see exactly how much water is being provided to each zone of your lawn. Once we've determined what is being delivered, we can then compare this to the necessary amount to make your yard thrive. Systems installed even a few years ago will need to be adjusted to compensate for changes in the size of flowers and shrubs in planting beds and the increase in thatch height of the lawn. We take all of these things into account and optimize your system on a yearly basis.
One of the most common installation techniques for sprinkler systems is the one-size-fits-all spray head model. This is a system where a rudimentary set up installs pop-up heads at equal distances from one another and calibrates them all to spray at the same rate. While this may seem like a good idea, it actually leads to a patchy lawn and improper watering of planting beds. A well optimized system will adjust every single head individually and incorporate several different types of heads and drip lines to make sure each zone of the yard is watered in a way that will benefit the current planting scheme.
Our Los Angeles sprinkler optimization service is included in all installations and should be considered by anyone who hasn't had their system optimized in the past year. Not only will we be able to save you money by tweaking your current water usage, we'll set it up so problem areas in your yard are problems no more.
