Average Cost of Professional Sprinkler System Repair
Trying to pin down the specific cost of repairing a sprinkler system can be tricky. After all, these systems can vary from property to property, and no two problems will be the same. However, you may find it helpful to have a rough estimate of costs when hiring repair professionals or getting quotes. Generally, repairing a sprinkler system will cost between $250 and $358, so expect your repair to fall within that range.
Burst Pipes and Winterization Problems
One common problem, especially in colder climates, is when the pipes to your sprinkler system freeze and then burst. This can be a major expense as the only real way to repair a burst pipe is to replace it entirely. If the pipe is below ground, the expense will be even higher, and professionals will need to dig into the ground in order to remove the pipe. You may also encounter landscaping costs if your lawn is disrupted by this process.
Timer and Spot Issues
In many cases, sprinkler system damage is focused on a single component. For example, a single sprinkler head might not be working properly, and that might be something as simple as a blockage from dirt or a malfunction. It is also possible that the timer is not working properly, which could be preventing certain areas of the system from operating as expected. Both of these possibilities are minor and require minimal time and equipment to fix, so they should fall on the lower end of the given price range.
Additional factors that might influence the cost of sprinkler system repair include the size of the system and the climate in your area.
