    Just a question regarding a repair. Back in the late fall my sprinkler guy came to winterize our system. Well when he started to blow out the lines I noticed a break in the lines from a geyser that poped up. I asked him to repair it, but he kinda did not want to do it and said he would come back in the spring. So anyway I kinda figure now that I am going to have to fix this break any pointers on how to do it?

    How long do sprinkler lines last?? I think my system is about 8 years old..

    Most irrigation companies will make repairs in the spring. Winter tends to bring its own set of repair needs (plow ripped up a head, etc).

    Let your irrigation guy come back in the spring, adjust your heads, set your clock and make all necessary repairs.

    Echo Bill. You let the guy do the repair in the Spring (after April 1 in your locale) and check the system out.
