What to look for when hiring a Lawn Sprinkler Repair Service Contractor
Sprinkler System Repair troubleshooting should be completed in a logical step by step process. Some steps like verifying power is being provided to the Irrigation Pump are simple. However, in cases where the sprinkler system valves can’t be located or the problem is not clear it can be much more cost effective to call for help.

Signs of a Bad Sprinkler Pump plus Troubleshooting
What to check if Your Sprinkler Pump is Not functioning
- First, check the circuit Breaker providing power to the irrigation pump. If the breaker is tripped reset it then check the pump again. If the breaker keeps tripping it could mean your pump has a short and will need to be replace. You will want to call a Pro for help to verify this is the cause.
- Also see: How do I get Water if my Sprinkler Pump or Irrigation System isn’t working in our FAQ’s area below.
Your Lawn Sprinkler Pump Works however No Water is coming out
- Don’t keep your Sprinkler Pump running without water more than a couple minutes or it could overheat and damage the pump. If when you touch the pump housing it is hot turn it off and let it cool down. When cooled off try priming the pump by adding water for additional testing.
- Another common issue is a vacuum leak. If your irrigation well or pipe from the well to the sprinkler pump has any kind of leak such will keep the sprinkler system from getting needed water from the well.
- In some cases, your sprinkler system pump may simply be worn out from normal wear.
- Lastly, when your irrigation pump runs without providing water this could be a sign your well has a problem. In such cases you’ll need a well pump repair contractor to provide a well repair.
Best Types of Sprinkler Pumps – with Comparison Chart
Sprinkler Pumps available at The Home Depot/Lowes
Over all Rating: Low Quality
Pros: The Home Depot and Lowes sell Sprinkler Pumps that are made of plastic and cheap.
Cons: These Pumps have significantly lower flow rates and water pressure limiting the coverage of your Irrigation System. We have seen these pumps fail in some cases just a few months after they were installed. Then when we received the call to repair the homeowner discovered it’s not repairable and the Warranty process is a ship it off and wait process and thus worthless. This is why professional technicians consider these pumps junk.
Quality Centrifugal Sprinkler Pump Brands: Sta-Rite and Goulds
Overall Rating: High Quality
Pros: Goulds Sprinkler Pumps and Sta-Rite Irrigation Pumps are chosen by more than 80% of homeowners due to their higher performance, longevity, and ability to be repaired. It’s our experience that Goulds Sprinkler Pumps offer the highest flow rate and pressure for the best value per dollar spent.
Cons: High Quality Sprinkler Pumps cost a bit more initially.

How to know What Size or HP Sprinkler Pump I Need?
In most cases a 1.5 HP Centrifugal Sprinkler Pump will meet the needs of an average 1/4 acre to 1/2 acre home with 3 to 6 irrigation zones which needs a sprinkler pump that can produce 25 – 40 GPM @ 40 PSI. For larger properties or properties with advanced irrigation needs you will want a pump that has a flow rate that matches the demand of the largest zone in the system.
Be aware that horsepower rating does not represent what the pumps flow rate and pressure will be. As the Sprinkler Pump Comparison chart above indicates the lower quality pumps do not produce the same flow rate as the higher quality pumps.
Sprinkler System - Frequently Asked Questions
To save up to several hundred dollars per month many homeowners have a Well for their Irrigation System aka Sprinkler System. By programing a Sprinkler System Timer the lawn can be watered on a schedule automatically. When it’s time to begin the programmed watering the Irrigation System Timer sends a low voltage signal to the Pump Start Relay which tells your Well Pump to turn on. Irrigation Systems most commonly use a Centrifugal type Well Pump. Your Irrigation Well Pump combines an Electric Motor which spins an impeller inside a pump housing which creates suction to lift water from your well and transfer that water under pressure to your irrigation indexing valve or individual zone valves. If you have individual zone valves the Irrigation Timer using low voltage wiring sends 24VAC to one of these zone valves which opens the valve so water will flow to that group of sprinkler heads.
First turn off the power to the pump. Next, if your sprinkler pump has a priming plug on the top surface remove it to fill the pump casing with water. If there is no priming plug you may be able to remove a pressure gauge and add water thru the opening. Lastly you may need to add a priming T at the exit of your pump. Then you will be able to remove the plug and add water.
If you have checked the breaker and the sprinkler pump still doesn’t work correctly turn off the power until a technician arrives.
To get water for immediate irrigation when your Sprinkler Pump does not work run a water hose from your neighbors water spigot, after asking permission of course, to a water spigot in line with the irrigation system . To connect the hose end to the spigot use a brass double female hose connector.
Before setting up a watering schedule using your sprinkler timer check with your local municipality to determine if there are any water restrictions.
Now you can program your irrigation timer for 3-4 days per week in Summer Months and 2-3 days per week in Winter Months here in Florida.
It is best to water your lawn during the pre dawn hours of the day thru early morning to limit the amount of evaporation.
