I'm totally new to sprinkler repair and I recently punctured one of my
pipes while I was digging out a stump. I learned how to fix the line
and did so but now one of the sprinkler heads isn't getting any water.
My house is on the top of a slight hill and the street is maybe 3 feet
lower than my house. The place where I fixed the line is at the top
near the house and the sprinkler head that's not getting any water is
the one at the bottom by the street. All the heads in between are
I removed the head and made sure there were no blockages and even tried
running the water with the head removed. Nothing came out of the pipe
so I'm pretty sure there is a blockage in the line somewhere.
Is this something I should try to fix? I can't think of any way of
doing myself other than digging up the piping in between the last
working sprinkler and the clogged one and slicing out portions of the
line until I find the clog. These heads run along a narrow strip of
grass so I think they're all getting water off the same line.
Is there a better way or is it time to call in a professional?
