Sprinkler System Checklist

All mechanical/electrical systems require maintenance. This applies to cars, nuclear power plants and sprinkler systems.

Sprinkler head breaks and leaking heads can instantly throw your water bill through the roof!

At least once a month check your system for the following problems:

1.Broken or leaking heads.
2.Sprinkler heads not clearing the turf or obstructed by plant material.
3.Rotors (the heads that turn and throw a longer distance) out of adjustment and watering the street.

If you do not have a sprinkler system, and would like to save over half the cost by doing it yourself, check out the #1 book on the subject, diy sprinkler system by Scott Young.
