A Broken Irrigation System Could Lead to a Higher Water Bill
Have you noticed that your water bill is much higher than normal? If so, your irrigation system may be the culprit behind the increase. Below are a number of reasons why your irrigation system could be causing your water bill to rise:
There might be a leak somewhere.
Your control valve could be broken, causing water to escape from the lines.
The pressure regulator might be broken. If this happens, more water than necessary can be forced out through the system, leading to a higher than normal water bill.
Be on the Lookout for Brown or Dry Spots on Your Lawn
Another tell-tale sign that there might be a problem with your irrigation system is brown or dry spots on your lawn. These spots are usually caused when the area is not getting enough water. There could be a few things going on with your irrigation system that is preventing it from delivering water properly: There might be debris that is clogging the sprinkler heads, which will block the water from coming out. You might have a cracked, chipped, or broken sprinkler head, in which case it will need to be replaced.
Have You Noticed Damp Areas Around Your Pressure Regulators or Filters?
If you've noticed that the areas around your pressure regulators or filters are damp, there could be a problem with your irrigation system. This is usually an indication of a leak in the lines. If this occurs, your system won't be able to function to its full potential. This problem is often caused by an accumulation of dirt and grass in the equipment. To avoid any serious damage, the equipment should be cleaned out as soon as possible.
