Broken or Inoperable Spray Heads

Upon inspection, a Spray Head may be found to be broken or inoperable. The most common observations include:

  • Broken Head – due to external forces – snow plow, lawn mower, vandalism, accidental damage by human or animal, driving over while operating.
  • Bad Seal – due to intrusion of sand or grit, aging/dried-out seal, external forces, such as stepping on or driving over while operating.

Ultimately, the easiest and most cost-effective solution is to replace the head. New spray heads (including the Precision™ Series Spray Nozzle or Precision™ Series Rotating Nozzle) come with a one year warranty on parts and labor and installation takes about the same amount or less time than repairing a damaged rotor head.

Broken or Inoperable Rotor Heads

Broken or Inoperable Rotor Heads

Upon inspection, a Rotor Head may be found to be broken or inoperable.  The most common observations include:

  • Broken Head – due to external forces – snow plow, lawn mower, vandalism, accidental damage by human or animal, driving over while operating.
  • Bad Seal – due to intrusion of sand or grit, aging/dried-out seal, external forces, such as stepping on or driving over while operating.
  • Not Rotating – due to wear and tear, sand or grit, damaged caused by external forces.

Ultimately, the easiest and most cost-effective solution is to replace the head.  New rotor heads come with a one year warranty on parts and labor and installation takes about the same amount or less time than repairing a damaged rotor head.

Clogged Spray Nozzles

Clogged Spray Nozzles

Upon inspection, a Spray Nozzle may be found to be clogged or inoperable. The most common observations include:

  • Clogged Nozzle – due to sediment or debris in the irrigation water.  This may occur immediately after installation due to construction debris or rocks and dirt being in the sprinkler lines, or may simply occur over time with sediment entering the nozzle after the system runs.

Ultimately, the easiest and most cost-effective solution is to replace the spray nozzle. New Precision™ Series Spray Nozzles come with a one year warranty on parts and labor and installation takes about the same amount or less time than repairing a clogged nozzle.
