Default Aeration and sprinkler systems.

When using a core aerator, walk behind type, what do you do about sprinkler systems? The sprinkler systems that have pipes or tubes underground.

Advice on avoiding hitting a sprinkler head?

How deep are the sprinkler pipes? Can that be a problem?

You mark where they are with making paint and then avoid them. If you hit one you pay to repair it either out of pocket or have your insurance handle it. You're most likely going to want your insurance to handle it.

Thanks Mark123.

What about their underground pipes? They are pretty deep right? Anyone ever hit one with an aerator's ... uh ... tubes?

An aerator's tines only go 2-3 inches deep. You're more likely to hit a sprinkler head than a pipe. You've also got to look out for invisible dog fences. The wires aren't always as deep as they should be. They're hard to hit but it only takes one nick to take the whole system down.

Thats a good point. Are you ever concerned about hitting anything else or no?
