Sprinkler Master Repair (Cache County, UT) (435) 760-0827

Cache Valley, UT is known for its warm summers and cold winters, and as a new homeowner, it’s important to be aware of how these changing seasons can affect your sprinkler system. Here are a few things that new homeowners in Cache Valley should know about sprinkler systems:

  1. Winterize your system: The cold temperatures in Cache Valley can cause damage to your sprinkler system if it is not properly winterized. Make sure to have your system blown out before the first freeze to prevent pipes from bursting and valves from freezing.
  2. Schedule regular maintenance: Your sprinkler system should be inspected and maintained at least once a year. A qualified professional will be able to check for leaks, clogs, and broken heads, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to keep your system running efficiently.
  3. Adjust your watering schedule: The weather in Cache Valley can change rapidly, so it’s important to adjust your watering schedule as needed. During the summer, you’ll need to water more frequently to keep your lawn and garden looking green and healthy, while in the winter, you may need to turn off your sprinkler system altogether.
  4. Check for leaks: Leaks can occur anywhere in your sprinkler system, and they can waste a lot of water and cause your water bill to spike. Keep an eye out for leaks in your sprinkler heads, valves, and pipes and have them repaired as soon as possible.
  5. Properly program your controller: The controller is the device that controls when and how your sprinkler system operates. Make sure to properly program it based on your watering needs and schedule, this way you can avoid over-watering or under-watering.
  6. Be mindful of water restrictions: Many cities and towns in Cache Valley have water restrictions in place to conserve water during the hot summer months. Be sure to check with your local government to find out if there are any restrictions in place and plan your watering schedule accordingly.

By following these tips and being mindful of the weather in Cache Valley, you can ensure that your sprinkler system is running smoothly, effectively, and efficiently all year round. Sprinkler Master Repair (Cache County, UT) is here to help you with all of your sprinkler needs. (435) 760-0827

How Long Should I Run Drip Irrigation?

Woman working in garden while running a drip irrigation system.

Drip irrigation is an efficient way to water your plants and garden, but it’s important to get the timing right. Too little water and your plants won’t thrive, but too much can lead to water waste and soil flooding. So, how long should you run your drip irrigation system?

Drip Irrigation Time for Different Plants

  • Annuals and perennials: Water once or twice a week for about 60 minutes.
  • Trees and shrubs: Water once or twice a month for about 90 minutes or until the water reaches 12″ deep.
  • Vegetables: Water needs vary based on the plant and stage of growth. 60 minutes twice a week as a starting point, but you’ll want to research your specific plants and monitor moisture levels
  • Lawns: Drip irrigation is not typically used for lawns.

Benefits of Drip Irrigation

  • Water efficiency: Drip irrigation delivers water directly to the plant’s roots, reducing evaporation and runoff. Most drip systems are between 85% and 90% efficient.
  • Plant health: Drip irrigation promotes deep root growth, helping plants withstand drought and recover from dry spells.
  • Pest control: Wet leaves are more prone to fungal infections and standing water can attract pests. Drip irrigation reduces these risks.

Tips for Optimizing Drip Irrigation

  • Monitor soil moisture: Use a moisture meter or your finger to check the soil moisture level before watering.
  • Adjust watering times: Increase or decrease watering times based on weather conditions and soil type. Clay soil holds moisture longer than sandy soil.
  • Check for leaks: Regularly inspect your drip system for leaks and clogs to ensure it’s working properly.

Hire a Professional

Watering time for drip irrigation can be complicated. If you’re unsure about how long to run your drip irrigation system, it may be a good idea to hire a professional. 

A professional can help you set up and optimize your drip irrigation system to ensure your plants are getting the right amount of water. 

If you’re in need of professional assistance, consider hiring Sprinkler Master. Our team of experts is skilled in all aspects of drip irrigation and can help you get the most out of your system. Contact us today by calling (435) 760-0827 or check out what repair service we offer.

How to Adjust Rainbird 5000 Rotors

Sprinkler Master sprinkler repair technician adjusting a Rainbird 5000 sprinkler.

Maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn starts with keeping your sprinkler system in top condition. Rainbird 5000 rotors are reliable and popular choices, and adjusting Rain Bird 5000 rotors is easy once you know how. 

Here’s a quick guide to get you started:

Tools You’ll Need:

Adjusting the Arc

The arc is the range of rotation from side to side. Rainbird 5000 rotors can be adjusted between 40 degrees and 360 degrees.

  • Turn on your system and stand behind the water spray. Gently grab the head of the rotor below the spray and turn it from side to side to determine the current arc.
  • To adjust the starting point of the arc, turn the rotor head to the desired starting point and gently force it to turn.
  • The arc adjustment screw is located on the top of the rotor head. To narrow the arc, turn the screw counterclockwise. To widen the arc, turn the screw clockwise. Test the arc by turning the head again and adjusting as needed.

Adjusting the Distance of the Spray

The distance of the spray (or radius) is how far the rotor can throw the water from itself. Rainbird 5000 rotors have an adjustable radius between 25 and 50 feet or 7.5 and 15 meters.

  • If you need to change the nozzle, choose one that is slightly larger than the desired distance. Remove the old nozzle by turning it counterclockwise. Attach the new nozzle by turning it clockwise.
  • To adjust the distance, locate the distance adjustment screw. It’s usually located on the side of the rotor head. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the distance or counterclockwise to decrease it. Test the distance and adjust as needed.

Other Adjustments for Rain Bird 5000s

  • If your rotor is spraying too high or too low, you can adjust the height of the head by turning the height adjustment screw. It’s usually located on the top of the head. Turn the screw clockwise to raise the head or counterclockwise to lower it.
  • If your rotor is tilted at an incorrect angle, you can use a shovel to gently lift it up and reset it.

Contact Us

That’s it! With these simple steps, you’ll be able to easily adjust your Rainbird 5000 rotor and keep your sprinkler system running smoothly. 

If you have any further questions or need help with your Rainbird system, don’t hesitate to contact us at (435) 760-0827 or check out what repair service we offer. We’re here to help!

How to fix a Sprinkler Zone

Sprinkler Master Logan, UT

(435) 760-0827

 


 

How to fix a sprinkler zone that's not working?

 

Sprinkler systems are amazing tools. But they can often have issues. If you're struggling with a sprinkler zone that's not working, it can seem impossible to find the fix to your problem. But you've come to the right place! Sprinkler Master in Logan UT has years of experience, and we want to help you!

Here are some potential fixes to getting a sprinkler zone working!

Sprinkler Zone Not Turning On

When a sprinkler zone isn't turning on, it's almost always because of an issue with the wiring. Wiring issues can be complicated to fix, but not impossible. To learn more about wiring, you can read this article from our main Sprinkler Master site.

In short, there are 3 things you should troubleshoot with the wiring. Start with the solenoid, test it to make sure it is working, then test the wiring by running the proper amount of voltage (usually 24v but it depends on your valves). If those are both fine you can go ahead and test that the timer is pushing the right voltage for the sprinkler valves.

If you've looked at the 3 problems with wiring, and found out that the electrical part of your problematic zone is working as intended, then you can move on to the valve itself. The easiest test method is gently tapping it while the solenoid is activated. This can help shake any debris inside loose, allowing the diaphragm to open and allow water through.

If that's done, you can try adjusting the flow control, bleeder valve, and checking to see if the solenoid is in the right spot. Sometimes the solenoid can be screwed into the valve too tightly and prevent the valve from opening. The same applies to flow control and bleeder valves.

That pretty much covers the entire valve's system, so after that you're down to water pressure. Make sure that another zone works, and then try going through the steps and parts to troubleshoot above. If you have any questions on the specifics of how to do what's listed, leave a comment below. We are always wanting to help out and we'd be happy to respond to you!

 

Sprinkler Zone Won't Turn Off

When a sprinkler zone isn't turning off, it can often be an issue with the mechanical part of the valve. See the video above for more help. In essense you need to check the bleeder valves, diaphragm, flow control, and solenoid and make sure they're all on and adjusted correctly. If that doesn't work, try disassembling the valve, cleaning the diaphragm and the housing and reassembling. Testing after that should result in a properly functioning zone. If it's not working correctly, usually a valve replacement will do the trick

 

In Conclusion

The steps are largely the same, regardless of if your zone isn't turning on, or isn't turning off. If you've tried these steps on your own and havne't fixed the problem, don't hesitate to give Sprinkler Master in Logan, UT a call!
