Irrigation involves applying water to soil, grass, plants, crops and more to create growth, assist in growth, or keep planting healthy. There are different methods of irrigation, one commonly used method being sprinkler irrigation. There are times when an irrigation system can get damaged, requiring irrigation repair. Often, an irrigation system can become damaged when the earth moves, as in an earthquake, or when an object, like a shovel, hits a pipe. The problem with damages to irrigation systems is that smaller leaks can go unnoticed. When this happens, you can end up with very soggy ground or a water bill that is very high. There are companies that offer irrigation repair to deal with any problems with irrigation systems.
