Common Issues Found During Mid-Season Inspection

  • Controller Programmed Incorrectly

    As the seasons change, so should your sprinkler system’s controller settings. Conserva technicians know how to make critical timing changes to help optimize your watering for fall overseeding, spring planting, or other seasonal activities. If your controller settings are not updated, your lawn will end up either drowning or dried up.

  • Poor Coverage

    Poor sprinkler head coverage can lead to dry or dead spots, keeping your landscape from looking its best. Lack of proper head-to-head coverage can be caused by poor irrigation design, inefficient products, water pressure issues, or broken heads. Regardless of the cause, our expert team is here to find a seamless fix.

  • Broken Heads

    Broken sprinkler heads are one of the leading causes of wasted water. A broken head will spew water everywhere except where intended. . If you notice a broken head, first turn off your irrigation water, then call Conserva.

  • Valve Issues

    Irrigation control valves are controlled by your sprinkler timer and found underground. Issues from corrosion, construction, or rodents can cause valve misfires that destroy your landscape. Our team is equipped to locate these valves and perform a full function test to ensure the valves are working properly.
