Cost to Repair Outdoor Misting System

Many home owners can benefit from having a misting system installed in the yards or around patios of their homes. Such systems provide a light mist of water to one's grass and plants, saving home owners the hassle of watering their yards during the hot and dry months of summer. Many misting systems can also operate on a timer, preventing home owners from forgetting to water their yards. Such a system can also function as an outdoor cooler, as the mist can be very refreshing on a hot day. In this sense, an outdoor mister can save you money on your electricity costs by cutting down on your use of fans and AC in the home.

While outdoor misting systems can certainly be great to have, the truth is that they can also be a pain when repairs are needed. For the most part, it is necessary to call out a professional repair company to take care of issues with a misting system, as the majority of the system itself is located underground. Because of this, it takes trained professionals to know where to dig to access these components and how to do so safely.

Common Issues with Outdoor Misting Systems

There are many things that can go wrong with a misting system, unfortunately. One of the most common issues is that of the head of a mister being damaged by a lawn mower or other piece of equipment. In such situations, the repair may involve gently knocking the mister head back into place or perhaps replacing it altogether.

More serious problems with outdoor misting systems can occur when there is a problem with the actual piping and other underground components of the system itself. In these cases, repairs may be more involved, time consuming, and expensive. Technicians will have to carefully dig to expose the bad pipe and repair or replace it as necessary. During this time, water may need to be shut off at the home as well.

Finally, problems with misting system timers can also be repaired by a professional company. Generally, these tend to be wiring problems that are relatively quick and simple to have corrected.

Average Costs to Repair a Misting System

The price of a misting system repair can range greatly depending on the specific problem and its severity. The average repair for most home owners ranges between $500 and $700, but can be as high as $1,500 in some cases.
