Sprinkler repair folks came today. Had a few issues with non-working or totally gone sprinkler heads so five got replaced. Second repair in 29 years so can't complain.

Here in TX you gotta water the lawn or it disappears. No rain in weeks now and maybe not for a few more weeks..... and 100F ....

Used to fix them or try to myself, but the big 'rotor' ones are tricky to adjust if you replace one. Two got 'lazy' and didn't want to fully rotate so they got replaced. Lawn mower folks hit one and yanked it out, then ran over it..... one just went "kaflooey" and self destructed.

Everything fixed in an hour.....had to wait 2 weeks for anyone to show up...busy time of year....all the service folks busy, busy, busy.

I'll turn off the sprinklers in 2-3 months and cut them back time wise in a month or so....or sooner if we get weekly rain.
