With the temperatures in the high 90's and not much rain in the forecast, it may be necessary to increase your sprinkler run time and possible number of days you are watering. Depending on where you are at, a general rule of thumb for the summer is to water 3 days per week. A simple way to test if you are watering enough is to take a regular screw driver and push the shaft in the soil after you have watered. If it’s relatively easy to push in and the entire shaft is moist, you’re watering enough. If you have to use a lot of “elbow grease” to push the screw driver in, you need to increase the run time. You want to allow enough time between watering to let the ground dry. There are many different variables as to how long you should water. For more detailed information, see Frisco Sprinkler Repair
