The Grass is Green Even On the “Other Side”

Roger Reissig June Blog Post 2

When the sun was blazing and grass was drying up, a touching story was shared by Roger Reissig via Facebook. It was of true love and adoration, a knowledge that love still continues after this life. Evidenced by Mr. Reissig’s sacrifice to go out and water his wife’s grave twice daily for the last year.

Originally on Facebook, the story soon went viral.

Roger gives an account of the awe- inspiring daily routine of his father, a true sprinkler man. What might seem an ordinary task to him, is really an extraordinary act of devotion.

“It’s been over a year now since Mom left us to go to her Heavenly home. Dad goes out to the grave to visit her twice a day. He has a routine where he clips some roses from his rose garden at home and delivers them to Mom. Then he hooks up a hose and waters her grass twice daily. With the recent drought, and hers being one of only graves getting watered, you can see that Moms stands out from the rest and is very beautiful.” – Roger writes on Facebook.

One scorching summer day while at his wife’s’ grave Mr. Reissig noticed a lady near by with tears in her eyes. He quickly went and offered some words of comfort. He learned that the grave she knelt at held her brother, a SSGT in the US Air Force, who had been taken several years before. After this run in with the family of the soldier, Mr. Reissig, the true sprinkler man, took it upon himself to water the grave of this veteran, everyday as well as his wife’s.

This is just one story of a remarkable man who decided to do something as simple as watering a grave to honor veterans, and loved ones. Though it can be hard to let go, we can always have that love that continues on after this life.

God’s love fills the immensity of space; therefore, there is no shortage of love in the universe, only in our willingness to do what is needed to feel it. To do this, Jesus explained we must “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, … soul, … strength, and … mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27).  -From Author of Other side of Heaven

How to fix Sprinkler Head

Replacing Broken Sprinkler Heads

It’s easy to run over a sprinkler head with a lawn mower or set sprinkler water pressure too high, which makes broken sprinkler heads a common source of irrigation frustration. If your sprinkler heads have broken casings, won’t pop up all the way, and/or have inconsistent or nonexistent spray patterns, you may need to replace them.

When looking for replacement sprinkler heads, it is important to match the brand of the sprinkler system you have installed. For instance, Dr. Sprinkler Repair works exclusively with Rain Bird products for installations, so any replacement parts our expert sprinkler technicians purchase will be Rain Bird products as well. Purchasing the same brand as the original parts allows for a seamless transition to a working lawn irrigation system.

Prior to replacing a sprinkler head, be sure to shut off the water sprinkler system. Next, dig a hole (approximately two feet in diameter) around the broken sprinkler head. Make sure to save the dirt in order to fill in the hole later! Be careful not to damage the irrigation sprinkler pipes, as that will require a much bigger fix. Dig down 8 to 12 inches to the base of the sprinkler’s vertical pipe, also known as the “riser,” in order to expose all of the pieces that will be replaced.

Carefully twist the old sprinkler head in a counterclockwise fashion to remove it from the vertical pipe, so that you don’t get soil in the pipe (this could cause a blockage in the water line and potentially damage the new sprinkler head). If the years of use have caused the sprinkler head to become stuck in place, a wrench may be needed to loosen it. Hold the riser in place while using a wrench to avoid tearing the rest of the irrigation pipes out of place.

Install the new sprinkler head by twisting it into place with a clockwise motion (no need for a wrench – hand-tight will be just fine). Set the spray pattern according to the directions that accompanied the purchase of the new sprinkler head, then replace the sod that you removed from the hole previously.

Repairing a Defective Sprinkler Zone

Lawn irrigation systems are organized into several zones – this acts as a failsafe of sorts for your system. If one zone becomes defective, the whole system is not necessarily compromised, which can save you a lot of time and money. Each zone has its own electrical valves for the sprinkler heads in that area, so if an individual zone is not working, that is a good place to start looking for the source of the problem.

Check all wiring in the zone for stable and secure connections. Next, check to see that the transformer is plugged in and working. Then look at the circuit breaker to be sure that the main panel is on and working. If none of those appear to be malfunctioning, it may be best to test the voltage to the sprinkler zone using a multimeter, a device available at most local hardware stores and home centers.
