Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
I demonstrate a diagnostic algorithm for workup of a defective solenoid as a cause of failure to water a sprinkler zone in a home irrigation system. This algorithm would be a reasonable approach if you have a single zone of sprinklers that delivers inadequate water. This review covers some basics of Irritrol valves and a Hunter Pro-C controller, but the information is more broadly applicable to most home irrigation systems. During the repair I use the technique of “voltage drop testing”, which is designed to find high dynamic resistance connections. Many such connections can be hard to find using traditional static methods. For a more general review of the structure of home irrigation systems, see my other video titled “how to fix a leaking sprinkler head”.
These systems use a transformed 25 volt AC power system, but even with low voltage power there is a chance of dangerous or damaging misadventure. Also be wary of the risk of water damage to your home if your system fails to shut off or is accidentally left on. Whenever working with electrical power, be careful for the safety of yourself and your family. Be sure to read any manufacturers literature available regarding your system.
