Suddenly the lawn sprinkler does not work anymore. The swiveling part does not move; the water runs out, no more water flows through the nozzles. Unfortunately, most lawn sprinklers are not easy to fix. Sometimes it helps to take the sprinkler apart.
When the lawn sprinkler stops working
First of all, you should search for the causes. Often it is only small things that affect the functioning of the lawn sprinkler. Possible causes:
- Nozzles are clogged or calcified
- Too low water pressure
- Supply line leaking
- Swiveling part defective
- Small parts are worn
Check if the water pressure is not too weak. See if the water hose is tight.
If the water leaks only intermittently, the nozzles may be clogged. This often happens when you blow up your lawn with groundwater or pond water. Even with very calcareous water from the line, the nozzles set. The built-in rubber part, which seals the nozzle head, dissolves more frequently.
You can repair the problem yourself by disassembling the nozzle head and cleaning the nozzles. In Gardena Sprenger, a sieve is installed, which catches dirt particles. This sieve must be cleaned regularly. The rubber seal can usually be fixed again.
The swiveling part does not move anymore.
Check if the settings on the page are correct. If something is not correctly locked in here, the swivel part is blocked.
After the winter break, the swiveling part may be rusty. Some fat helps to make it move again.
If you can not find the cause, you may need to replace the pan head.
Disassemble the lawn sprinkler
Often the cause can only be detected if you disassemble the lawn sprinkler. However, it would help if you were careful when removing a Gardena lawn sprinkler. Improper repairs will invalidate the manufacturer’s possible warranty.
For older devices, it is worth taking a look at the manufacturer or a direct call. Sometimes solutions can be found together to repair the sprinkler.
Tips & Tricks
No lawn sprinkler lasts forever. If you pay attention to high-quality artistry when buying the lawn sprinkler, you will enjoy it longer. Quality Sprenger is indeed much more expensive, but can usually procure spare parts.
