When it comes to your irrigation system one of the common problems is heads being broken. I will use this blog post to give you an idea of what a broken rotary head looks like.

Since we started performing irrigation work for our customers the most common problem has been broken heads.  A head can be broken in a number of ways and since the system usually runs early in the morning, it will often go unnoticed for long periods of time before being addressed.


The rotary head in this video had been broken for such a long period of time that the lawn had started to dry out and become stressed.  The top of this rotary head was sheered off by the customers lawn service, thus causing it to spray water into the street for the entire zone cycle.  For example this head used 4gpm and was set to run for 50min three times a week.  That is roughly 600 gallons of water wasted every week.

With water use becoming more and more restricted everyone with an irrigation system should routinely inspect their irrigation system. If you would like professional expertise with your irrigation system give Bob Klepac Exterminating Service a call! 979 245 5700
