What are the causes of valve failure in irrigation systems?

Valve failure in irrigation systems can be caused by a range of factors, including corrosion, mineral buildup, worn or damaged seals, incorrect installation, and electrical issues. Other causes include excessive pressure, flow rates, or temperature fluctuations, which can lead to valve malfunction or failure. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and lubricating valves, can help prevent these issues and extend valve lifespan.
