A lawn sprinkler system makes life much easier and saves us time. A sprinkler system cuts back on the use of water by watering more effectively. However, a broken sprinkler system can waste over 4,000 gallons of water a month. Most sprinkler problems go unnoticed because they run at night and go unseen. Common problems with a lawn sprinkler system is that they are not rising above the grass (not popping up all the way) as well as broken tops and broken pipes below the ground. Sprinklers that do not cover correctly wastewater and can causing lasting damage. Call Sprinkler Master (Salt Lake City, UT) at (385) 226-5764
When the sun was blazing and grass was drying up, a touching story was shared by Roger Reissig via Facebook. It was of true love and adoration, a knowledge that love still continues after this life. Evidenced by Mr. Reissig’s sacrifice to go out and water his wife's grave twice daily for the last year.
Originally on facebook, the story soon went viral.
Roger gives an account of the awe- inspiring daily routine of his father, a true sprinkler man. What might seem an ordinary task to him, is really an extraordinary act of devotion.
“It’s been over a year now since Mom left us to go to her Heavenly home. Dad goes out to the grave to visit her twice a day. He has a routine where he clips some roses from his rose garden at home and delivers them to Mom. Then he hooks up a hose and waters her grass twice daily. With the recent drought, and hers being one of only graves getting watered, you can see that Moms stands out from the rest and is very beautiful.” – Roger writes on Facebook.
One scorching summer day while at his wife’s’ grave Mr. Reissig noticed a lady near by with tears in her eyes. He quickly went and offered some words of comfort. He learned that the grave she knelt at held her brother, a SSGT in the US Air Force, who had been taken several years before. After this run in with the family of the soldier, Mr. Reissig, the true sprinkler man, took it upon himself to water the grave of this veteran, everyday as well as his wife’s.
This is just one story of a remarkable man who decided to do something as simple as watering a grave to honor veterans, and loved ones. Though it can be hard to let go, we can always have that love that continues on after this life.
God’s love fills the immensity of space; therefore, there is no shortage of love in the universe, only in our willingness to do what is needed to feel it. To do this, Jesus explained we must “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, … soul, … strength, and … mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27). -From Author ofOther side of Heaven

The 8 Steps
Reseal all sprinkler plugs or drain valves.
Open main stop and waste or main sprinkler valve slowly.
Do visual inspections of the main line, valve manifold, and backflow unit.
Make adjustments to the sprinkler valves by turning off the bleeder screws and adjusting the flow control to the proper setting for your system.
Power up the sprinkler timer, then run through each zone to make sure it is getting power; turn the valve on correctly.
Check to make sure that sprinklers are working correctly in all zones and make any minor adjustments.
Check each lateral line to ensure that they boost each individual zone. Then perform a thorough examination of the lateral supply lines. Check sprinkler heads and risers for proper process and direction. Appraise each area for correct coverage and accurate performance pressure. Any alterations, modifications, or repairs needed will be noted. Several common repairs/adjustments are:
Garden sprinklers may need to be raised due to shrub or flower growth.
Pop-up sprinkler heads may need to be transferred due to shrub or flower growth, landscape changes, fence or tree installations.
Bad sprinkler nozzles that are not spraying right may need to be replaced.
Sprinkler lines, main or lateral lines, that are broken need to be repaired.

Lawn irrigation systems are organized into several zones, or valves - this acts as a failsafe of sorts for your system. If one sprinkler zone becomes defective, the whole system is not necessarily compromised, which can save you a lot of time and money. Each sprinkler valve has its own electrical valves for the sprinkler heads in that area, so if an individual zone is not working, that is a good place to start looking for the source of the problem.
Check all wiring in the sprinkler zone for stable and secure connections. Next, check to see that the transformer is plugged in and working. Then look at the circuit breaker to be sure that the main panel is on and working. If none of those appear to be malfunctioning, it may be best to test the voltage to the sprinkler zone using a multimeter, a device available at most local hardware stores and home centers. Turn on the broken sprinkler valve from the controller and measure the voltage to see if it falls within your systems recommended range (which can be found in the sprinkler system’s owner’s manual.
If it does not fall within that range, the controller may need to be replaced. If maintained properly, sprinkler controllers do not often break unless they are struck by lightning, but this has been known to happen. New controllers vary in price from about $175 to $400. When looking for a replacement controller, be sure to purchase the exact same model as was previously installed.
