Cleaning Sprinklers and Water Nozzles

cleaning sprinklers and water nozzlesIf you need to occasionally clean your shower head or water faucet to remove build-up, the same may be true of your lawn sprinklers and garden hose water nozzles. Hard water and natural elements can be hard on them, and you may notice less pressure or functionality over time. Here are a few things you can try.

  1. Use a cloth or brush to wipe off any debris and check for damage such as dents or broken pieces.
  2. If all seems well, try soaking in a tub of vinegar and then flushing with hot water.
  3. If build-up remains, try soaking in a calcium, lime, and rust remover, scrubbing with a hard bristled brush, and then flushing with plenty of water.
