What is it when your water comes out pulsating? Just today…

Customer Question
What is it when...

What is it when your water comes out pulsating?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Just today and I have no water pressure to my sprinklers in the back yard only

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm 80 years old and my husband just passed away this July so yes I can't afford a plumber

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is this something I can do?
