How to Fix a Pop-Up Sprinkler with Sprinkler Master Repair (Salt Lake City, UT)

At Sprinkler Master Repair (Salt Lake City, UT) 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 (385) 226-5764. 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 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 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.

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:

Pop-up sprinklers get broken easily 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 Sprinkler Master Repair (Salt Lake City, UT) would mitigate the problems you have with your pop-up sprinkler. Call us today at (385) 226-5764 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, 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, but if no debris comes out, the pipe controlling the head may be clogged and needs to be blown 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’ll need to unscrew the head and either unscrew the nipple its attached to, reattach a lower one, or connect the head to a 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, replace 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 head or nozzle, screw the center of the nozzle and you can turn it on or off. Some repairs will require special tools.

Here are a few helpful tips to make any healthy lawn, healthier!

Aerate Your Lawn

Just like humans need air to breathe, so does your lawn! Lawn aeration simply means punching three inch deep holes evenly across your lawn, so your soil can breathe and generate proper nutrients. There are several different ways to aerate your lawn, either by renting a large aerating machine or by using a simple handheld aerating tool. For most homeowners with small to medium sized lawns, a handheld aerating tool, such as this, will make things work great. As a best practice, you should only need to aerate your lawn once a year, typically in the spring time.

Water Your LawnSprinkler Master Repair (Salt Lake City, UT) Fun

This may seem like an obvious tip, but it is one of the most important to getting a full, healthy lawn. The most common issue with watering a lawn is the decision on the right time to do it.

Sprinkler System Checklist for Salt Lake City Homebuyers

Purchasing a new home is a stressful experience and the technicians at Sprinkler Master Salt Lake City want to help relieve some of your stress. Among all the things you have to worry about with a new home is whether or not your sprinkler system works the way it should. We have created a sprinkler system checklist to help Salt Lake home buyers easily notice if there are problems in their system. 

 

There are 4 main issues that we run into at Sprinkler Master Salt Lake. They are; leaky sprinkler pipes, broken sprinkler heads, sprinkler heads that need to be adjusted, and faulty sprinkler zones. 

 

  1. Leaks

The most common signs that there is a leak in your sprinkler system are puddles of water forming on your lawn or low water pressure to your sprinkler heads. If you see pools of water after running the system or if your sprinklers don’t seem to be spraying as far as they should, there’s a good chance you have a leak. Leaks in your sprinkler line can cost you a lot of money if they aren’t taken care of quickly so call Sprinkler Master Salt Lake as soon as you can if you think you have a leak.

  1. Broken Sprinkler heads

Broken sprinkler heads are usually pretty easy to spot. Often times they look like a geyser, are stuck spraying in only one direction or don’t even pop up at all. Just like leaks, broken sprinkler heads waste water and can cost a lot if they aren’t fixed quickly.

 

  1. Heads that need adjusting

Sometimes all your sprinkler system needs is a little adjustment. If you notice dry spots or if your sprinklers are spraying on the driveway, sidewalk, shed, or anything else that doesn’t need to be watered give our Salt Lake technicians a call to get them adjusted properly. 

 

  1. Faulty zones

When you turn on your sprinkler system your zones should run in their assigned order like normal. You will know if you have a faulty sprinkler zone if one or more of the zones won’t turn on or don’t turn off when they are supposed to. Issues like this usually occur due to bad solenoids or broken sprinkler valves. Here at Sprinkler Master Salt Lake we have a lot of experience replacing and repairing sprinkler solenoids and valves and can quickly solve your problem!Remember, if you encounter any of these problems in your new Salt Lake home give Sprinkler Master Salt Lake City a call at 385-226-5764!

Five Highly Effective Sprinkler System Watering Tips

A healthy, green lawn needs about 1 – 1 1/12 inches of water per week. The best, most effective way to get your lawn the water it needs is to use a sprinkler system. A working sprinkler system will save you time, water, and money. A good test of your watering levels is to stick a six-inch screwdriver into your grass. If you cannot get the full length of the screwdriver into the ground, you are not watering enough. Below are five of our effective watering tips.

  1. Install a smart watering timer – A smart timer can save you time, water, and money by watering your lawn with the exact amount of water it needs. No more, no less. Our recommended smart timer is Skydrop, a local company with an innovative timer design. If you’d like us to install a Skydrop timer for you, give us a call!
  2. Water deeply 2-3 times a week instead of daily – This will require your grass to develop a long root system, making it stronger and healthier.
  3. Water early in the morning – Watering in the heat of the day will cause some of the water to evaporate, thus wasting precious water. If you water in the mornings, less evaporation will occur, thus effectively using as little water as possible.
  4. Install a rain or moisture sensor – A rain or moisture sensor can shut off your sprinkler system when it is not needed due to weather, and save you from wasting water.
  5. Check your sprinkler system routinely – Insuring that your system is fully functioning is incredibly important. If there are any problems with your system, it can cause dry spots and ruin the look of your beautiful lawn. If you need a repair done on your system, we can help! Contact us!

And remember, a broken sprinkler is a huge waste of water. You could lose hundreds of gallons from just one broken sprinkler1. If you have a busted sprinkler, don’t hesitate to call us! Contact us here: https://saltlake.utahsprinklermaster.repair/contact-us/
