Frequently Asked Questions

How would I know if I have a problem with my sprinkler system?

One of the main benefits of having a sprinkler system is that, when it’s working, you shouldn’t have to do anything to keep your lawn looking great and healthy. If you are wondering whether you have a problem, here are a few warning signs to look for:

  • an unusual spike in your monthly water bill (especially if you know you don’t have leaks elsewhere);
  • low water pressure;
  • sprinkler heads that remain stuck in the downward position or are producing an uneven or irregular spray;
  • consistently wet or muddy spots or
  • an unexpected number of plants that show signs of stress in a short period of time (wilted, yellow leaves or little to no growth, for example).

If you see any of these signs, it’s a good idea to schedule a time for an irrigation professional to come to your property to do an inspection of what might be going on.

Does ABC install new sprinkler systems?

While our sprinkler repair technicians in New Braunfels can install new sections and parts of an irrigation system if they stop working, we currently do not install entire irrigation systems. We have landscape designers who are able to incorporate a new watering system into any plans they create for you if desired.

What are the benefits of a drip irrigation system?

Some homeowners in New Braunfels choose to water their lawn with a drip irrigation system instead of a traditional sprinkler system. Some of the benefits of having drip irrigation are that these systems:

  • require less water, which means lower water waste and utility bills;
  • reduce the risk of over spraying and evaporation which can occur with above-ground sprinkler heads;
  • allow you to more easily expand your system as your plants mature;
  • directly connect to your existing outdoor faucet, eliminating the need to cut into your home’s water line;
  • target specific areas in your yard that need more water than others;
  • provide gentle water, which can help prevent erosion and
  • reduce weed growth and the potential for fungal growth from overwatering in other parts of your lawn.

Our experts can also provide recommendations on whether you may be eligible for a rebate from your water provider if you invest in a more water-efficient irrigation system. Some drip systems are exempt from watering restrictions since they usually use less water than traditional sprinkler systems. Our irrigation technicians can switch your current system to drip irrigation or make any needed repairs to your existing drip system.

Can you help me save water?

We often set our systems to run during the hours of the day when we aren’t outside to spot a problem, which is one of the reasons our sprinkler systems are often the reason we are wasting water. Scheduling routine maintenance can help prevent issues that can lead to costly repairs. ABC’s sprinkler repair professionals can fix any leaks, adjust and check your sprinkler heads and ensure that your sprinklers are adequately distributing water where you need it in your yard.

If you are particularly concerned with water usage, an ABC team member can make recommendations to adjust the frequency and amount of water going into your lawn.

When is the best time of day to set my sprinklers to run?

We have found that in New Braunfels, the best time of day to water your lawn is in the early morning. Plants are better able to absorb moisture at that time. Also, when you water your lawn at night, less moisture evaporates, which can make your plants more susceptible to fungal growth. Some local governments have water restrictions that require local homeowners to water their lawn before midday to avoid water being lost to evaporation.

Why does my lawn have dry spots?

Even with a working sprinkler system, your yard can have dry spots. Having worked on Texas lawns for decades, we have learned that you need to significantly adjust the amount of water your grass receives during the hot, dry months of the year. If you don’t make these adjustments, your yard will show signs of stress, which may appear as yellow or wilted leaves or stunted plant growth.

Additionally, these dry patches can signal a malfunctioning sprinkler system. In the case of a clogged sprinkler head or malfunctioning valve, parts of your yard may not be getting the moisture they need to be healthy. Our lawn care experts can diagnose the issue and make the changes necessary to provide challenging spots with the nourishment they need.

Do I need to winterize my sprinkler system?

In colder areas of the country, homeowners have an annual process to get their sprinkler systems ready for winter. Because of our warmer climate, winterizing your irrigation system in New Braunfels is largely unnecessary since we rarely face prolonged periods of freezing temperatures. When we do experience a cold spell, it is recommended to turn off your system and wrap any exposed metal components with insulation.

In order to avoid having cracked or brittle heads and valves, homeowners can run their systems once a month during the winter. In the later part of fall, we offer winter sprinkler system inspections to our customers. Our technicians can make small adjustments that will ensure that your sprinkler system won’t be damaged during the colder months of the year.

“After noticing damage to a recently completed stone tree border in my yard I concluded it was most likely a lawn mower, as there was what appeared to be a tire mark near the damage. ABC does my lawn and when I brought it their attention they scheduled Joel to inspect the damage. Joel and I discussed the damage and we both agreed it was more than likely caused by a lawn mower. Joel assured me ABC would take responsibility for the damage. I contacted the contractor that installed the border to provide an estimate but they were slow to respond. ABC informed me they have craftsmen who could repair the border and I agreed to allow them to do the work. I wasn't home when they showed up to do the work but my wife was impressed when they showed up as scheduled, informed her why they were there and notified her when the job was done. They were very courteous. I inspected the work when I got home and was very impressed with the repair. ABC handled the situation from my notification to their repair in a professional manner. I was left thinking I hired the wrong company to do the initial border installation. ABC's quality of work exceeded that of the contractor and their professionalism was top-notch! I recommend ABC to anyone seeking work within the purview of their craftsmen.”
