Today the Property Care Guys did Sprinkler Repairs in Wellard, South of Perth
Broken popup sprinklers, as most of you probably know, are one of the most common retic issues there are. The best way to avoid this issue is by having your system installed professionally. I see many popup grids installed very randomly with sprinklers all in the wrong places – too far apart, too close, too many, too few, too high, too low, full circle sprayers on the edge of paved areas and all sorts of things like that which are only going to cost the owner a lot of money and time to maintain either doing it themselves or hiring repair guys constantly.
The next best thing to having your reticulation system installed correctly, is to have a technician come out and do a complete system overhaul. This would include assessing spray radius coverage, pressure, flow control etc and then rearranging as many sprinkler positions as are required. Most jobs like such would not take longer than a day to complete, including locating the solenoid station valves and cleaning them out and a complete system flush, new spray heads, filters and a retic controller reset and programming.
Got a bit carried away there. The placement of the popups at this small 2 station residential system were pretty good. I only repaired a few popups one of which the riser was broken off and stuck in the PVC pipe thread which we have the tools for rectifying. Others were buried or blocked with dirt and sand.
