If you find that some of your sprinkler valves didn't make it through the winter you may be wondering whether you should repair or replace them. There are several factors to consider when making the decision.
For some older sprinkler valve models the option to repair them is not available if the manufacturer stopped making the parts. Sometimes the cost of repair is close to that of replacement. For lower end valves it may be less expensive to replace the sprinkler valve so, keep that in mind when buying parts. Higher end valves are less expensive to rebuild and the parts are more readily available.
Before you begin a repair consider how many replacement parts are needed to help you weigh the value of repairing a sprinkler valve.
