Your sprinkler drip system filter is designed to capture sediment within the water, preventing buildup further down your sprinkler lines. To keep your drip system running smoothly, it is a good idea to clean the filters monthly. If you are a Granville Homeowner, the filter for your sprinkler drip system, attached to your sprinkler’s main water valve, is located on the front side of your home.
