Troubleshooting and fixing lawn sprinklers is relatively simple, according to Family Handyman. A few quick fixes to the system itself can repair over 90 percent of the potential problems that a sprinkler system experiences.
Some troubleshooting procedures are designed to diagnose specific problems, such as what to do if a zone does not shut off on the system. Other troubleshooting processes help users find wet spots and determine why their sprinkler is leaking. Sometimes a faulty sprinkler may result in water conservation issues, and some troubleshooting procedures are even designed to help users save on their water bills by optimizing the sprinkler's performance.
