Have you ever had sprinklers that keep getting blocked? Even after you change them and wash them out? The pesky things just keep getting blockages. Do you have brown patches in your lawn and garden?
I’m going to tell you step by step, the best way to stop this.
I’ve been conducting reticulation repairs for almost 2 decades and have learnt a few tricks along the way. If I can share these and save you some money, then its a job well done.
1. Inspect all your sprinkler heads closely, even one you think are fine.
Often nozzles are partially blocked and people don’t even realise. It may be just a sliver of the water coming out is blocked and unless you’re extremely close to the sprinkler, it is hard to see.
Here are some examples. Note I have highlighted where the blockage is in the spray. I have noticed that most people do not see these. You have to get very wet to be able to. So put on the gum boots and bathers. Fixing retic on a hot summer day is certainly not the worst job in the world.
