Plumbing Problems to Watch for as You Start Your Summer Lawn Care

With summer just around the corner, you are already thinking about the landscaping and lawn care you will have to do in the coming months. Naturally, you want to keep your lawn looking great. However, one of the things you might not consider is just how important your plumbing can be for lawn maintenance. Below, we will discuss some of the different types of issues that can crop up from time to time.

Greener Grass Near Septic Area

Isn’t green grass great? In most cases, this might be true. However, if you notice that there is a lot of green grass only around the area near your septic tank, it could indicate a problem with the septic system. There could be a leak. You’ll want to let the pros deal with this type of problem.

Leaking Sprinklers

Your sprinkler system is likely out all year long dealing with the weather, animals, your lawnmower, and countless other issues. There is a chance that it could become damaged because of external factors, or simply because the system is old. If that’s the case, you might find that you have leaking sprinklers. They could be allowing water onto your lawn even when they aren’t running.

You will often notice greener spots where this happens. Keep an eye out for this. You could be losing a lot of water through your sprinklers.

Dirty Sprinkler Heads

You may also have dirty sprinkler heads, which could make your system less efficient. You might not be watering all of the areas of your lawn because of this. Clean your sprinkler heads occasionally and pay attention to where the water sprays when they are running.

Broken or Leaking Pipes

Just like the sprinklers, if you have broken or leaking pipes, it might be allowing water into your lawn that you aren’t aware of. Again, there will be areas that are greener on your lawn if this is happening. They will typically indicate the location of the problem, though, so it should be easier for the specialists to find the issues.

These are just some of the different sorts of plumbing problems you might see this summer. Always keep an eye on your lawn and all of the plumbing work you have set up with your sprinklers. If there are any issues that you can’t fix with a simple cleaning, be sure to get in touch with the at Elk Grove Village Sewer & Plumbing today!
