Repairing a Broken Sprinkler Pipe can be tricky.   In the picture above, a Sprinkler Pipe had been punctured with a landscaping stake.  The Pipe was in a group of pipes together.  They had originally been burred in one trench along with the sprinkler valve wires.  Accidentally a landscaper drove a stake into the ground and hit the pipe.  The stake went between the two top pipes and hit the one on the bottom.  Yikes!

The top pipes were fine but the one underneath leaked like crazy.  Had it been the other way around with the damaged pipe being the one on the top.  The Sprinkler Pipe Repair would have been much easier.  The bad part with the hole would simply been cut out and replaced with a ” Quick Fix” which is a piece of pipe that expands just like a ” Telescope.”  You glue each end and fill the space that was cut out.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair has been solving Sprinkler Repair problems like this since 1993.  It is this experience that lets us know that a “Quick Fix,” Pipe splice will not work when the pipe is on the bottom of a group of pipes.  It is too hard to expand the Quick Fix, to repair the leak.  It takes a decent amount of force to expand.  In this situation, it is too awkward to install it correctly.  It will leak a little on one end or the other.

Our solution is “Old School.”  We Do a “Box Out,” to repair the broken Pipe.  It is exactly like it sounds.  We cut out the bad pipe and put in New Sprinkler Pipe by running pipe out a few inches, up a few inches, and back to the pipe as shown in the picture above.  This is how broken Sprinkler Pipes were repaired before Quick Fix Splices existed.

Sprinkler Repair can mean a lot of things.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair has been providing expert sprinkler repair since 1993 for all of Central and Western Oklahoma.

We provide service for Sprinkler Valves.  If you have a “Loose Bleed Screw” on a Rainbird Valve we can help.  If your solenoid on your Toro Valve is too tight, we have the solution.  If your sprinkler zone isn’t working and you don’t know what kind of valve you have, It’s no problem.

 

Sprinkler heads are always a focus.  Some customers need them moved.  Others just need their sprinkler heads adjusted.  Many times it is better to just replace the sprinkler head if it can’t be repaired or adjusted.  Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair has been providing these services for over 26 years.

Sprinkler Controllers can have trouble as well.  Loose wires or burnt up modules can be just a couple of the possible problems.  Many times the only problem is that the Sprinkler Controller is not programmed correctly.

 

When solving Sprinkler Controller Problems, Experience Counts.  There is no substitute for EXPERIENCE!  Again, we have over 26 years of solving Sprinkler Controller Problems.

Finally, we fix leaking pipes.  Sprinkler pipes may leak connected to Sprinkler Valves, underneath Sprinkler Heads or at the Water Main Connection.  Sprinkler Leaks can also occur throughout the Sprinkler System at any Joint or connection.

Finding leaks can be very easy as in the picture above.  Many times the leaks are hard to find however.  You may have a “Pin Hole ” Leak that is very small and extremely hard to find.   This again is an example of Experience saving time and money.

If Sprinkler Heads are a problem, or your sprinkler valves are not working correctly, or if you have a leak anywhere in your Sprinkler System, Give Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair a call.


Sprinkler Repair –

Spring is here!  Do you have a Sprinkler head that does this?

 

 

Maybe your Sprinkler Valves look like this!  Yikes!

You might want a Sprinkler Head Moved, Replaced, or adjusted.

Things can look nice when your sprinkler heads spray in the right places.

Sprinkler Heads need lots of attention when you have a sprinkler system.   Sometimes a Sprinkler Head needs to be moved.  Landscaping changes, bad original sprinkler head placement, or you just want to move it.  Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair can help.

Sprinkler Heads can Freeze and break in the winter time if your sprinkler runs at a bad time or if In-line sprinkler pipe drains were not installed originally.  Dogs like to chew on them and dig them up. Sprinkler Heads get broken when a car or truck is driven across the yard.  But, the majority of sprinkler head damage is done by weed eaters and lawn mowers.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair has been fixing broken sprinkler heads since 1993.  If you need a sprinkler head fixed, replaced, adjusted, or moved, we can help.

Sprinkler Repair is an ongoing issue for any sprinkler system.  Folks in Central Oklahoma are turning on their Sprinkler Systems and discovering problems.    We fixed several leaks in a Sprinkler System in Edmond.  The sprinkler pipes were leaking in several places.  Each leak had to be cut out and replaced.  The Sprinkler System was fairly new.  It was installed last summer by a Pool Company that also installs cheap sprinkler systems. All the joints in the sprinkler pipes were glued together with clear PVC Cement.  That part is OK, But they cut some corners and didn’t use PVC Primer with the glue.  As a result the joints didn’t bond very well and many of them blew apart this spring when the sprinkler systems was turned on.  (Thus all the leaks)  I suspect we will have to go back several times to fix additional leaks.  We can only warranty the PVC joints that we have replaced.   Cheaper isn’t always better.

Recently we fixed a sprinkler system that was poorly installed.

  The Sprinkler System Company that installed it didn’t know what they were doing.  There was no Master Valve installed in the Sprinkler System.  As a result, The Sprinkler Pipe between the water meter and the Sprinkler Valves stayed pressurized all the time.  This is bad during a cold snap in Oklahoma.  If a Master Valve and In-Line Pipe Drains had been installed originally, there would be no broken pipes when it got too cold.    The Sprinkler Pipes would drain automatically.

Mustang Oklahoma Sprinkler Repair

Recently we had a customer in Mustang who needed a wiring problem solved for their sprinkler controller.  Several of the sprinkler zones were not working.  We had to trace the sprinkler wires in the yard till we found the problem.  Tracing sprinkler wire is a very difficult Sprinkler Repair to complete.  The Sprinkler Wire is burred which makes the wiring problem hard to find.  It took us a while but we found the problem.  The customer had cable installed and the cable company cut the sprinkler wires.

 If your Sprinkler System has:

1. Broken Sprinkler Heads

2. Leaking Sprinkler Valves

3. Broken Back-Flow Valve

4. Broken Sprinkler Pipes

5.  Defective Sprinkler Clock or Controller

Lawn Irrigation Systems require maintenance from time to time.  All types of Sprinkler Repair become necessary.    Sprinkler heads break for several reasons.  Dogs chew up Sprinkler Heads.  Tree roots twist and break Sprinkler heads.  Cars run over and break Sprinkler Heads.  Weed Eaters cut the tops off Sprinkler Heads.  If you have a Sprinkler Head that is not performing perfectly, We can help.

Sprinkler Valves can have trouble too.  The Sprinkler Valve Wiring becomes disconnected or shorts out.  Tree Roots can stretch or break the Sprinkler WiresSprinkler Valves can start leaking over time. Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair can solve Sprinkler Valve problems of all types.

The Sprinkler Valves that you see above are a mess.  They were leaking and weren’t working correctly.  We replaced the above Sprinkler Valves with the ones you see below.

Moving Sprinkler Valves

Recently we had a Sprinkler Repair Customer in Oklahoma City,  He was wanting to have his landscape company install a new tree in his flowerbed.  The problem was that his Sprinkler Valves were right where he wanted to plant the tree.  The addition problem was that he had several Sprinkler Valves tightly grouped together so they could not be moved individually.  The landscaping company had dug around the valves in an attempt to move them.  It turned into a real mess.  They cracked a pipe in the process and water and dirt mixed to make mud.  Which then was allowed to dry around the valves.  What a mess!

The only option was to replace the Sprinkler Valves and at the same time move them to a new location.

First we had to put together the new valves in a tight setting so they could fit in the new valve box that we would Install the Sprinkler Valves in.

Take a look at the picture above.  You may notice that for some strange reason we left the Sprinkler Valves sitting up on there side.  Actually there is a very important reason to do this.  Once the Sprinkler Valves are glued together with “Hot” Glue,  if the group of valves is just laid flat to dry, you will have a big problem.  The excess glue in the pipes will run up inside the valve and cause damage to the Sprinkler Valve.  When putting fittings on a Sprinkler Valve they must be placed so that excess glue will run away from the valve.

The Sprinkler Valves can have all kinds of problems and may not work at all form the beginning.  Since 1993 I have cut out and replaced literally thousands of Sprinkler Valves that had glue up inside them.  Many “Fly By Night” landscaping companies that also work on Sprinkler Systems make this mistake constantly.  I have even seen experienced Sprinkler Repair Companies make this mistake as well.  They get in a hurry and make mistakes.  They should know better.

After assembling the Sprinkler Valves and moving them to a new location out of the flowerbed, we tested the Sprinkler Valves thoroughly.

Now our Sprinkler Repair customer has a new tree in his flowerbed.

Sprinkler Repair in Oklahoma City.

Recently we spent an afternoon checking out a Sprinkler System in Northwest Oklahoma City.  The customer told us that many of the heads in the Sprinkler System had a variety of problems.  Her Sprinkler System was fairly large so the Sprinkler System Checkup would take some time.

Broken Sprinkler Head

 

First we had to run each Sprinkler Zone and look at each Sprinkler Head individually.  This took a while considering that there were 18 zones and 5 to 10 Sprinkler Heads in Each Zone.

 

First we looked to see if each Sprinkler Head was functioning correctly.  Many of the heads were leaking at the base. Other Sprinkler Heads were not spraying correctly and needed to have their Sprinkler Nozzles Replaced.  Some of the Sprinklers were just worn out and needed to be replaced.

 

As we went through the Sprinkler System, we placed a flag by each head that needed some type or Sprinkler Repair or Replacement.  Along the way we also checked Sprinkler Coverage.  Some Sprinkler Heads needed to be moved because some areas were either too dry or too wet.  Several Sprinkler Heads needed to be moved.

Before the end of the day, we replaced 12 Sprinkler Heads, Changed Out 35 Sprinkler Nozzles, and moved 11 sprinkler heads to new locations.

Fixing Leaking Sprinkler Pipes is a common occurrence for Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair.  Most recently we had a service call in Lawton.  We got a call from a lady who had water pouring out from under the edge of her driveway.  After shutting off the water at the back-flow valve, we were able to determine that the leak definitely was coming from the sprinkler system.  A cracked sprinkler pipe was the problem and to make matters worse, the sprinkler pipe ran under the driveway.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair had the solution.  Instead of trying to fix the broken sprinkler pipe, it was a much better idea to replace the entire pipe.  The Sprinkler Repair took about three hours.

Oklahoma City Sprinkler Repair

Recently we helped some folks with their sprinkler controller.  They had a lightning strike melting their sprinkler controller and all the connecting wires. Changing the Sprinkler Controller took a little time, but the larger problem was changing out all the sprinkler wires that ran underground form the controller to the sprinkler valves.  This part took a while and required quite a bit of attention to detail.

SPRINKLER REPAIR IN OKLAHOMA CITY

The sprinkler valve in the picture was replaced by Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair. When the Sprinkler Valves were originally installed, they were not put inside a “Valve Box” to protect them. The company that installed them just dumped dirt on them and got paid and left. The Sprinkler System ran ok for about two years before the sprinkler valves failed. We replaced the valves and added a valve box to protect them so this time the Rain Bird valves should last much longer. If you need help with your sprinkler system, give us a call at 405 203 9419.

Sprinkler Controller Trouble Shooting

Having Installed Several Thousand Sprinkler Systems over the past several years, here are the most common mistakes made by homeowners who are not comfortable with their Sprinkler Controller.

Most Sprinkler Controllers have a knob or a digital touch screen.  Either way, the basic functions are the same.

1.  Sometimes some brands of Sprinkler Controllers won’t work because the ” Time and Date,” have not been set correctly.  If you select time/date and the screen is blank with no time or date then you have a problem.

*******************************************************************************************************************************

2.  The most common reason that a Sprinkler Controller won’t work is because the breaker has been tripped for the electrical plug that the controller is plugged into.  People assume that because the LED screen on the controller has power that the controller is receiving power.  THIS IS NOT THE CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ALL CONTROLLERS HAVE BACKUP BATTERIES IN THEM TO MAINTAIN THE CONTROLLERS PROGRAMMING IF YOUR ELECTRICITY GOES OFF.  THE BREAKER CAN BE TRIPPED TO THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET AND THE DIGITAL DISPLAY WILL STILL RUN OFF THE BATTERY MAKING IT LOOK LIKE IT HAS POWER WHEN IT DOES NOT.

TEST YOUR OUTLET BY CHECKING YOUR BREAKERS OR PLUGGING SOMETHING INTO THE SOCKET SUCH AS A LIGHT OR A POWER TOOL.

********************************************************************************************************************************

Another very common mistake is that people confuse “Start Times,” with “Run Times” on the controller.

A Run Time is how long you program each Sprinkler Zone to run.

(Zone 1  5 minutes, Zone 2 8 minutes, Zone 3 25 minutes and so on.)  You program how long you want each Sprinkler Zone to run.

A Start Time is a time that you set on the controller to start zone one running.  All other zones automatically follow zone one in order lowest to highest.  Zone 2 knows to always follow zone 1 when it is done.  Zone 3 knows to follow Zone 2 and so on.  Let me repeat this.  Start Times are only for zone 1.  Again, a “Start Time,” is a time that you would like your Sprinkler System to come and run through all the zones.

Sprinkler Controllers have the ability to run more than one start time.  This is to allow your entire Sprinkler System to run more than once in a 24 hour period.  You can have a Start Time of 1 PM.  Zone 1 comes on and runs until its programmed time elapses.  Zone 2 automatically comes on next and runs.  Then zone 3 and so on.  You might have a 2nd Start Time several hours later to start and run your entire system again.  (2nd start time at 8 PM)  The Sprinkler System has had plenty of time to run through all the zones when it started at 1 PM.  At 8 PM the controller turns zone 1 on again and all the zones run their programmed amount of time.  THE MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE IS THINKING THAT YOU MUST PROGRAM A START TIME FOR EACH ZONE. ( YOU CAN NOT PROGRAM A START TIME FOR ZONE 2,3,4 etc.)  This is also apparent by the fact that most Sprinkler Controllers have a limit of 4 start times but can run more zones than 4.  Most Sprinkler Controllers can run 10 zones or more.

What causes a big problem is a when person programs a Start Time at 1Pm.  Thinking incorrectly that they need to program a Start Time for zone 2.  They enter a second Start Time for 1:15pm, and a third start time for zone 3 at 1:30 PM.  So here is what happens.  Say each zone is programmed to run for 10 minutes each.(Run Time)  Zone 1 comes on and runs at 1 PM.  At 1:10 PM Zone 1 stops and zone 2 comes on.  At 1:15 PM the second start time kicks in and tries to turn on zone 1 again while zone 2 has only been running for five minutes and the other subsequent zones have not run at all.  This is called an “Overlapping Start Time.”  With an Overlapping Start Time, Different brands of controllers do different things.  They are all bad regardless.  Some will run zone one over and over and over causing a flood.  Others will not run at all.

Most people only use or need one Start Time.

********************************************************************************************************************************

The “Water Budget Feature,” found on most controllers can cause problems with your Sprinkler Run Times.  Water Budget is a quick way to quickly change all your Run Times for all your zones at once.  Example  —  Out of the box, your new Sprinkler Controller will be set to 100%.  If you program zone 1 to run 10 minutes and zone 2 to run 15 minutes then if your water budget is 100% then that is exactly what they will run.  If you change your water budget from 100% to 200% now zone 1 will run 20 minutes and zone 2 will run 30 minutes and any other zone’s run time will run double of what it was programmed at 100%.  This is a great feature until you accidentally change your water budget to 900% and don’t realize it.  (or 5%)

IF YOUR RUN TIMES ARE RUNNING MORE OR LESS THAN WHAT YOU PROGRAMMED THEM FOR THEN CHECK THE WATER BUDGET.

********************************************************************************************************************************

Some of the older digital Sprinkler Controllers have an “Enter” button.  Any programming you do must be followed by hitting the Enter Button.  If you don’t hit it then programming that you think you keyed in is lost.  This is why the newer controllers don’t have an Enter Button.

Broken Sprinkler Head took about an hour to fix.

 

 

FRENCH DRAINS AS PART OF A DRAINAGE SYSTEM OR BY THEMSELVES

A French Drain can be a part of aDrainage System or can stand alone.  A Drainage System is made up of one or several types of Drains connected in sequence moving down hill toward an exit or release point.  What makes up or determines the recipe of a Drainage System depends on the “Drainage Diagnosis.”  EveryDrainage Systemis unique to some degree.

French Drain Trench Going Under Sidewalk

French Drain Trench Going Under Sidewalk

For Example, A four inch French Drain may run across a hillside, transition to solid 4 inch Solid Drain Pipe while running under a sidewalk, then connecting into a 12 inch Surface Drain in a low spot,  Solid Drain Pipe then could continue to a garage foundation where the Solid Drain Pipe changes back to 4 inch French Drain again and runs along the foundation for say 60 feet.  Next the French Drain changes again to 4 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continues under a fence to a Pop-Up Emitter which is the exit point.  This again is just one example of a Drainage System with 2 French Drains and one Surface Drainbeing the main parts.  This would be considered a “Complex Drainage System.”

A simple Drainage System might be a 6 inch French Drain running along a driveway, turning slightly and changing to 6 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continuing to a Curb Fitting as an Exit Point.

FRENCH DRAIN DESIGN

French Drain Design must take into account many variables.  One consideration for a French Drain that many times is missed, is the type of soil.  French Drain Design must take into account the type of soil that the French Drain runs through.  If the soil is “Tight or made up of Clay, A French Drain Liner may not be necessary.  The Gravel or Limestone that is used to fill the French Drain trench may be all that is needed to maintain the integrity of the trench over time.   This means that dirt will not mix in with the French Drain Gravel and clog it up over time.  This is not the case however if your soil is sandy or loose.  A Trench Liner should be used to prevent this type of soil from moving into the gravel of the French Drain.  Trench Linersare relatively inexpensive and are not hard to install.  If you are not sure what to do then install the Trench Liner in the French Drain.

Determining  the size of the French Drain Pipe can be difficult.  If the French Drain is not very big and has no Gutter Down-Spouts or Surface Drains connected to it then 3 inch or 4 inch French Drain Pipe may be used.  If the French Drain is large or has many gutters or Surface Drains connected into it, then you should use 6 Inch French Drain Pipeor larger.

French Drain Design is also determined by the Problem Drainage Area.  If water is moving into the Problem Drainage Area underground (Sub-Surface), then installing aFrench Drain is a “Must!”  French Drains can move Sub-Surface water as well as Surface Water.  Surface Drains can only move Surface Water.  This is why French Drains do such a good job protecting driveways, sidewalks, and foundations.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair installs French Drains and Drainage Systems in all of Central Oklahoma including:  Oklahoma City, Norman, Edmond, Moore, Mustang, Yukon, and Midwest City.

French Drain Installation —   French Drainsare designed to do a lot of things.  If you have an area that has unwanted water standing in it or running across it, a French Drain can be the answer.  A French Drain is a trench that runs across the Drainage Problem Area.  A French Drain Pipe is placed in the bottom of the trench.  The French Drain Pipe is perforated with thousands of small holes.  In most cases the Drain Pipe has a nylon soc around the pipe to act as a filter for the French Drain.  The French Drain trench is then filled with some type of small rock or stone.  We typically uses crushed 1 inch Lime Stone to cover the French Drain Pipe.  The dirt that was dug out of the trench is taken away or spread out around the French Drain.  The Lime Stone replaces the dirt and fills the French Drain Trench all the way to the surface.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair Recently installed a Drainage System in Nichols Hills.  The Drainage Systemwas made up of a 4 inch French Drain starting in the back yard.  It ran between the garage and the pool.  Several gutters were connected directly into the French Drain.  From this point, we expanded up to a larger 6 inch Drain pipe to handle the added water into the system from the gutters.  In several places the French Drain had to run through areas where Sprinkler Pipeswere in the way.  We had to re-rout all the Sprinkler Pipes and Wires under the French Drain.

When Installing a French Drain as part of a Drainage System, there are many things to consider.

What is the primary source of water coming into the problem drainage area.

Are there secondary sources of water entering the area.

What are they and how many.

How fast does water enter the area and how often.

What are the potential exit points for the water,  Where do we want to take the water too.  Is there more than one potential exit point to increase drainage capacity.

Does the customer want a Drainage System or a Flood Prevention System and does he understand the difference.

 

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair recently diagnosed a Drainage Problem in  South Oklahoma City.  The Home owner had a sump Pump in their basement that was fed from a French Drain outside the Basement Wall.  The French Drain was 14 feet down along the Stem wall of the house.  The French Drain Pipe was cheap and had collapsed.  We brought in a Mini Excavator and dug up the pipe and replaced it with Durable ADS 4 inch perf/soc French Drain pipe.  In the end, we were able to dig up the pipe and Replace it.

French Drains can be installed by themselves, or as part of a Drainage System that uses other French Drains, Surface Drains, or other Drain combinations.  Typically a French Drain is used to protect a broad area that has a lot of standing water.  A French Drain might run along side a homes foundation, or beside a driveway, or on any Drainage Project where Sub-Surface water is the primary problem.  If water is running toward your home under ground ( through sandy soil), A French Drain is the only Solution  for draining away water flowing under ground.

 

If you live in Oklahoma City and need a French Drain installed in your yard, or along your driveway, or near your foundation, give us a call.  If you live in Edmond or Norman and need a Surface Drain installed in the concrete in your sidewalk or driveway, we can help.  If you live in Mustang or Yukon and would like to protect your trees or flower beds from standing water with a French Drain, We specializes in just that!

FRENCH DRAINS AS PART OF A DRAINAGE SYSTEM OR BY THEMSELVES

A  French Drain can be a part of a Drainage System or can stand alone.  A Drainage System is made up of one or several types of Drains connected in sequence moving down hill toward an exit or release point.  What makes up or determines the recipe of a Drainage System depends on the “Drainage Diagnosis.”  Every Drainage System is unique to some degree.

French Drain Trench Going Under Sidewalk

For Example, A four inch French Drain may run across a hillside, transition to solid 4 inch Solid Drain Pipe while running under a sidewalk, then connecting into a 12 inch Surface Drain in a low spot,  Solid Drain Pipe then could continue to a garage foundation where the Solid Drain Pipe changes back to 4 inch French Drain again and runs along the foundation for say 60 feet.  Next the French Drain changes again to 4 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continues under a fence to a Pop-Up Emitter which is the exit point.  This again is just one example of a Drainage System with 2 French Drains and one Surface Drain being the main parts.  This would be considered a “Complex Drainage System.”

A simple Drainage System might be a 6 inch French Drain running along a driveway, turning slightly and changing to 6 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continuing to a Curb Fitting as an Exit Point.

FRENCH DRAIN DESIGN

French Drain Design must take into account many variables.  One consideration for a French Drain that many times is missed, is the type of soil.  French Drain Design must take into account the type of soil that the French Drain runs through.  If the soil is “Tight or made up of Clay, A French Drain Liner may not be necessary.  The Gravel or Limestone that is used to fill the French Drain trench may be all that is needed to maintain the integrity of the trench over time.   This means that dirt will not mix in with the French Drain Gravel and clog it up over time.  This is not the case however if your soil is sandy or loose.  A Trench Liner should be used to prevent this type of soil from moving into the gravel of the French Drain.  Trench Liners are relatively inexpensive and are not hard to install.  If you are not sure what to do then install the Trench Liner in the French Drain.

Determining  the size of the French Drain Pipe can be difficult.  If the French Drain is not very big and has no Gutter Down-Spouts or Surface Drains connected to it then 3 inch or 4 inch French Drain Pipe may be used.  If the French Drain is large or has many gutters or Surface Drains connected into it, then you should use 6 Inch French Drain Pipe or larger.
