When our weather conditions change and we experience massive amounts of rain your sprinkler should do less watering.  Are you finding standing water between you and your neighbors house?  Are there puddles in your yard?  Is water seeping around the sidewalks and drive way?  With torrential rains most of the yards in Central Florida will become saturated and water will flood your yards.  Drainage is a huge problem when the rainy season arrives or when your sprinkler system isn’t calibrated. Our drainage professionals at AAction Sprinkler Repair know how to divert excess water so your yard will have proper drainage. There are various types of drainage

A professionally installed French drain can save you money and headaches.  In our heavy rains the water is never immediately absorbed by our ground. Rain can form a cover that will make the soil less absorbent. Sod roots reduce the soils absorption rate causing puddles to form. Be on the lookout for mushrooms in low lying areas of your yard.  This is a sure sign of drainage issues.
