When is an Irrigation System Necessary?
If you’ve eliminated the possibility of a water leak in your home plumbing, the problem could be in your irrigation system. One tell-tale sign of an irrigation system leak is especially green, lush growth in one area of your lawn. If the leak is big enough, you’ll be able to tell because the ground will be soggy, damp, or muddy in a concentrated area.
Irrigation leaks occur in many places, including:
- Home Gardens
- Safety Sprinklers
We can help you locate and repair your irrigation leak. Though they do waste water during operation, a broken sprinkler head isn’t technically a “leak,” and is easy for most homeowners to address on their own. Most frequently, irrigation leaks occurs when a valve fails to shut completely, which are the easiest to find and fix, but the leak may also be in the system pipes. Pipe leaks are almost impossible for homeowners to find on their own, and valve leaks are difficult at best.
Irrigation Leak Detection
If you have an irrigation leak, it’s important you address it. Groundwater can not only leak into your basement and cause flooding, it can also eat away at your foundation. If you live in a densely-populated area, a leak from your sprinkler system might damage your neighbor’s foundation, which could result in a lawsuit. And un-repaired leaks will only get worse over time, so it’s not a problem you can ignore.
If you think you have an irrigation leak on your hands, call Clearwater Leak Detection! We’ll help you catch the leak before it does major damage to your yard, home, or system itself.
