Yes. You’ll want to make sure the sprinkler head and nozzle don’t become clogged with dust, dirt and debris by regularly cleaning them. Most heads and nozzles are easy to remove and rinse out with water. You’ll also want to regularly check for any leaks and pipe issues that may bring forth a larger issue in plumbing, installation or your water pressure.
Lawn Care and Sprinkler FAQs
Does a sprinkler system require any maintenance?
What do most sprinkler systems include?
If you’re looking into a standard irrigation system to evenly spray water across your yard you’ll need a few pieces of equipment to work properly. Most require a water pump to send water to the sprinkler. You’ll also need a water meter to measure the water’s GPM. And the most important component for most sprinklers is the head to send the right amount of water from the sprinkler to the head for the lawn. Most sprinklers come with multiple heads to water your lawn and plants the way you wish. There’s also other equipment to consider including valves and pump controllers. Refer to your sprinkler’s manual for all equipment needed for proper use.
Are there any regulations for watering my lawn?
Most areas have regulations for lawn watering which limit the number of times your lawn is watered weekly. To avoid penalties and fines, double check with your local utility commission for any scheduling, regulations and restrictions. If there are any, adjust your lawn sprinkler schedule as needed.
