Sprinkler systems are sort of the unsung heroes of the fire protection world. You don’t think about them much until you need them, and if your system is inoperable or impeded by a lack of maintenance or a breakdown somewhere in the network of pipes, you can bet that you will wish you had paid it more attention. This means that when repairs are needed, they must be handled quickly and correctly. Of course, there’s the temptation to try to fix it yourself in order to save on the sprinkler system repair cost.
That temptation is natural, but it should be avoided. The reason for this is that any repairs you attempt on your own could end up costing you many times more than what would you would have paid a plumbing company for professional repairs.
For example, fixing a leaking joint seems like a relatively simple task. All it takes is a wrench, right? Actually, that may or may not be the case, but just overtightening the joint can break the pipe itself, causing even more damage and increasing your sprinkler system repair cost substantially.
The best way to minimize sprinkler system repair cost is actually to ensure that your system is properly maintained at all times. This includes regular monthly and quarterly inspections and testing, as well as replacing aging, corroded or damaged components before they lead to more serious problems.
