Sprinkler & Irrigation System Inspections

Sprinkler system leaks and failures can lead to high water bills and potential damage to your new home or property. Before you turn on your homes sprinkler system, have it inspected. Even though most of the sprinkler system is located underground, a knowledgeable Home Inspector will assess the sprinkler operation, including a visible inspection of the controllers, connections, sprinkler head locations, pressure differentials, drains, and sensors. Water meters are also inspected as a means of uncovering any possible leaks. Afterwards it is a good idea to periodically watch your sprinkler system in operation to assure proper spray angles and shutoff. In colder climates it is also recommended that you have a professional remove all excess water from the lines before winter to avoid waterline cracking from freezing.
