3 Sprinkler Tips

Hey guys, I hope you’re doing well. Did you know right now is the perfect time to test your sprinklers and dial in to make those small adjustments? The reason is, because now that we’re at the tail end of summer, the weather has been hot and dry, and it’s really testing our sprinkler system and our lawn. So it’s really exposing what we call hot spots, areas just like this, it’s not dead, but it’s not looking good. It’s a little bit dry. The sprinklers are definitely getting water to the lawn, but not enough, not evenly like it is to the rest of the lawn. So, all you need to do, flip the sprinklers on in these areas. Just go check the heads, walk around. Here’s the things you want to look for. First of all, clogged or plugged up nozzles. Maybe there’s a rock or some dirt in the nozzles. Change those out or get the rock out, unclog those. Second of all, maybe the sprinkler head is not standing up straight, or maybe it’s rotated. You need to straighten it up, or turn it so it’s hitting evenly. Or third, if you have the sprinklers that rotate around, maybe they’re not rotating fully. Maybe they’re just getting stuck, or maybe they’re not extending all the way that they should be so that you’re not getting complete coverage. Go ahead and make these adjustments, that way you’re dialing your system in, and it is exactly the way you need to be, because it’s really tough when you get wet weather and cooler temperatures, these hot spots don’t expose themselves as easily. So go ahead and try this out, super easy. I’m going to pout some links to some videos on how to select nozzles, how to change heads, how to know what kind of heads you need or adjust heads.
