Top Irrigation Repair related questions

To know if it’s time to book a lawn irrigation repair near you, check for brown or dry spots, oversaturated areas, or wilting shrubs and plants in your lawn or landscape beds. Notice also if there are changes in the water pressure in your property. Another telling sign that you need irrigation services is when your water bill is higher than usual.

It depends on the type of irrigation system. Sprinkler irrigation usually takes the quickest, lasting three to four hours. Drip and surface irrigation generally take longer. The time it takes to complete the repair also depends on the size of the job and the extent of damages it has. Once you’ve booked an irrigation pump repair near you, walk your Tasker through the details of your system to help them gauge the duration of the service.

There’s no need for you to provide your tools. When you book a Tasker, they come with professional equipment to get the job done smoothly. They have basic tools like shovels, hacksaws, wire cutters, wrenches, knives, and even specialized equipment like sensors for soil moisture, irrigation scheduling tools, and trencher machines.

Yes, some damages can be repaired using DIY techniques. But keep in mind that when done incorrectly, DIY repairs can lead to even bigger damages. It’s best to leave the irrigation repair to a professional to ensure that it is done correctly and efficiently, saving you time, energy, and money in the long run.

What do irrigation repair services include?

Irrigation repair services usually start by assessing your system so your Tasker can correctly diagnose the problem. Doing so can help maintain the beauty and health of your plants. After all, having your lawn treated is just one part of its maintenance! Whether the damage is on the valves, rotor heads, nozzles, control panel, electrical wiring, or pipes, expect to have an irrigation repair plan tailored to your needs. Here’s what to expect when you book an irrigation system repair near you:

Drip irrigation repair

Drip irrigation is arguably the most popular irrigation system for many reasons. It laces your lawn with irrigation lines, dripping water into the root systems of your plants gradually. It can be an excellent method, especially if growing or cultivating plants. This makes it highly efficient because it directly hydrates your plants without the need to water the surface, requiring less water usage. On top of that, the water used is less prone to evaporation!


On the other side of these perks is that the drip irrigation system requires more maintenance than other types. The equipment used for drip irrigation is highly susceptible to damages usually caused by mineral buildup, debris, and physical trauma from external forces such as lawnmowers. Booking irrigation repair services near you can fix or replace cracked hoses or emitters and troubleshoot the system, maintaining the efficiency of your drip irrigation!

Sprinkler irrigation repair

The sprinkler system supplies water to the plants overhead in the form of downpours by high-pressure sprinklers and or guns. This is usually the cost-effective choice for those who have large lawns and acres of land that need watering. Though this is relatively easier to maintain, it can still be damaged.


Leaks can happen, roots can either grow into the nozzle of the spray head, debris from a broken line can clog the pipe, and many other issues can occur. When these happen, irrigation sprinkler repair is necessary to fix or replace your damaged sprinkler head, check your leaking sprinkler valves, and mend crushed pipes. If you also have problems with water demand inside the house due to conflict with sprinklers running simultaneously, getting a plumber can help increase pressure from your water sources.

Surface irrigation repair

Being the oldest type of irrigation system, surface irrigation is one of the most widely used worldwide. Instead of using a mechanical pump, it takes advantage of gravity and the shape of the land to flood the soil and distribute the water. Though it requires less technology, it is still inevitable for surface irrigation to have issues, like all types of irrigation systems. Damaged flow controls, drainage, turnouts, gate, valves, and leaking ditches and dikes can cause erosion, flooding, and destruction of plants. Your Tasker can use sustainable methods to fix these problems to maintain the health of your garden or farm!

Leaking irrigation repair


Glen Iris VIC, Australia

14th Nov 2023

I need a plumber or someone very experienced in watering systems. One of the valves in this old irrigation system is leaking. I need someone to repair or replace the valves as well as fix a pipe joiner which I cracked when digging it up. Note that there is only one valve required these days. There were once multiple valves for a sprinkler system long since destroyed by the previous owners dogs. The timer system still works fine and would need to be reconnected to the valves etc. It is also possible that system could be substantially simplified by just connecting the single pipe to the tap closeby and installing a tap connected timer. However there is no turner on the tap and it would need to be reconnected etc. Probably best you come and take a look at this before working out best approach. - Due date: Before Friday, 1 December 2023

Top job Ryan. Would use your services again if needed.
