Minneapolis Broken Sprinklers Leak More than Water

water conserving sprinkler systems MinneapolisSpring has finally sprung, and it may not be the only thing adding excess water to your lawn. Now is the time to look closely at your sprinkler system. Perhaps, like some of us, last fall you may have noticed a soggy patch, but since the season was nearly over, decided to wait before looking at it more closely. That wet patch in your landscaping could be coming from broken sprinkler heads or any number of small issues in your irrigation system. This is causing it to drain water in unintended areas, like your driveway, the street, or even your neighbor’s lawn.

Small Leaks Matter

Did you know that, according to the EPA’s magazine Water Sense, one small leak the size of a ballpoint pen’s head, can spill over 6,300 gallons of water over the course of just one month? That is 30 gallons of water every single day for just one incredibly small leak (1/32nd”). Consider that here in Minneapolis, based on a February 2015 Public Works estimate, an individual uses on average between 60 and 70 gallons of water per day inside their home. Suddenly, those small leaks add up to big money you are literally pouring it out on the ground.
