Sprinklers are an essential part of any lawn care routine, so it’s important to keep them in good working order.
Why Do Sprinklers Break?

Improper installation can lead to all sorts of problems, including leaks, clogs, and broken pipes. Other reasons include outside factors like damage from lawnmowers, cars, people, and animals.
