What is a Sprinkler Valve
The sprinkler valve opens and closes the path for water to pass through.
The sprinkler valve has two opening for pipes to be connected, the inlet and the outlet. The inlet pipe brings water from the household supply or pump to the valve.
The inlet ends in the middle of the valve with a stopper called a diaphragm, which is held in place with a rod and a spring which are connected to the top of the valve housing.
When the solenoid is activated, it allows air inside the valve to escape. Without this pressure inside the valve, the diaphragm raises up and lets water flow into the outlet, and out into the Irrigation system.
When the solenoid is activated in the other direction, the opposite happens, and the diaphragm lowers back down onto a gasket, closing the sprinkler valve.
Common Sprinkler Valve Repair problems
The valve not opening or closing, if this happens the diaphragm is most likely bad. In that case it can simply be replaced with a new one.
The work involved in repairing a bad diaphragm is minimal,as long as you know what you’re doing. This type of Sprinkler repair service usually can be done in an hour.
In many cases the Lawn Sprinkler Valves are so old that the parts are not interchangeable in that case you have to cut the valve out and install a new one. This could turn into a disaster and cost more money.
Mainly due to the skills and knowledge of the service tech and the Labor involved.
There are many reason why the cost to fix a Lawn sprinkler valve can be expensive.
The main reason is when most irrigation companies install a new Lawn sprinkler system they build the manifold wrong.
How they build it wrong is by bunching all the valves together. When that happens you can not just cut out one valve you have to replace each one. The labor involved is intense and long.

Drip Irrigation is becoming more and more popular and for good reason. Where ever you have your landscaping drip irrigation is highly recommended.
Common sense tells you plants like to have water on their roots and with a drip irrigation system you accomplish just that.
The only down side to the drip system is the pipe is exposed or just barely covered by mulch. This can lead to leaks due from simply cutting your grass.
Sprinkler Head Repairs
There are two basic types of sprinkler heads Rotors and Spray Heads. Rotors are the sprinkler heads that shoot far and rotate the spray heads are the ones that are stationary and spray in one spot.
The rotors are the more common ones to go bad and there are several reasons why.
First off they are gear driven and by that they can simply wear out in time.
When this happens you have no choice but to have a new one installed. In most cases replacing a rotor is minimal labor.
