As a homeowner, you rely on your sprinkler system to keep your lawn and garden looking healthy and green. However, sprinkler systems can sometimes experience problems that can be frustrating to deal with.
Low Water Pressure: Low water pressure can be a major issue for sprinkler systems, as it can cause the sprinkler heads to either not function properly or not function at all. To fix this issue, you can try cleaning the sprinkler heads or adjusting the water pressure at the valve. If these solutions don’t work, you may need to replace the sprinkler heads or check for leaks in the system.
Broken or Leaking Sprinkler Heads: Broken or leaking sprinkler heads can be a major problem, as they can waste a lot of water and may not provide proper coverage for your lawn. To fix this issue, you will need to locate the broken or leaking head and either repair or replace it.
Malfunctioning Timers: If your sprinkler system is not turning on or off at the correct times, it could be an issue with the timer. To fix this problem, you can try adjusting the settings on the timer or replacing the timer altogether.
Clogged Nozzles: Clogged nozzles can prevent water from flowing through the sprinkler heads properly, causing uneven watering or dry spots on your lawn. To fix this issue, you will need to clean the nozzles or replace them if they are damaged.
Leaks: Leaks in your sprinkler system can waste a lot of water and can be difficult to locate. To fix this issue, you will need to locate the leak and either repair or replace the damaged component.
By understanding these common issues and how to fix them, you can keep your sprinkler system functioning properly and maintain a healthy lawn and garden.

When the sun was blazing and grass was drying up, a touching story was shared by Roger Reissig via Facebook. It was of true love and adoration, a knowledge that love still continues after this life. Evidenced by Mr. Reissig’s sacrifice to go out and water his wife’s grave twice daily for the last year.
Originally on Facebook, the story soon went viral.
Roger gives an account of the awe- inspiring daily routine of his father, a true sprinkler man. What might seem an ordinary task to him, is really an extraordinary act of devotion.
“It’s been over a year now since Mom left us to go to her Heavenly home. Dad goes out to the grave to visit her twice a day. He has a routine where he clips some roses from his rose garden at home and delivers them to Mom. Then he hooks up a hose and waters her grass twice daily. With the recent drought, and hers being one of only graves getting watered, you can see that Moms stands out from the rest and is very beautiful.” – Roger writes on Facebook.
One scorching summer day while at his wife’s’ grave Mr. Reissig noticed a lady near by with tears in her eyes. He quickly went and offered some words of comfort. He learned that the grave she knelt at held her brother, a SSGT in the US Air Force, who had been taken several years before. After this run in with the family of the soldier, Mr. Reissig, the true sprinkler man, took it upon himself to water the grave of this veteran, everyday as well as his wife’s.
This is just one story of a remarkable man who decided to do something as simple as watering a grave to honor veterans, and loved ones. Though it can be hard to let go, we can always have that love that continues on after this life.
God’s love fills the immensity of space; therefore, there is no shortage of love in the universe, only in our willingness to do what is needed to feel it. To do this, Jesus explained we must “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, … soul, … strength, and … mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27). -From Author of Other side of Heaven
