Do I have any legal avenues I could pursue against my apartment complex?
A sprinkler near my designated parking spot at my apartment complex sprays my car several times a week leaving hard water stains on the paint. I know the stains can eventually ruin the paint. It is both annoying and time consuming fixing the problem because the stains do not just wash off, they have to be buffed out, EVERY WEEK. I was hoping for some advice before confronting the management. Thanks.

I would have talked to them after the first time. The sprinkler can easily be redirected.

No there is nothing you can do, the apartments have the right to use the sprinklers to keep the landscaping alive and in good looking shape. I think you should get a car cover, I know it's a bother but do you really want to live in a building with only mud and dirt around it because they cant water the grounds... More
