Getting your irrigation systems inspected is a great way to make sure that everything is still working the way that it should be. When was the last time that you had your sprinkler system looked at?
Your irrigation system should be looked at every year to make sure that everything is working the way that it should be.
Especially in Florida, the sun is out year-round, so you are likely using your sprinklers more frequently.
Why Get an Irrigation Inspection?
The cost of water is high, but if your irrigation system isn’t functioning properly, you might be paying even more in water bills than you should be.
Leaks and malfunctioning sprinklers will waste water and require you to water even more because of the lack of even distribution. Occasionally, irrigation issues can also lead to property damage, which can be costly to repair. To help avoid this, be sure that the irrigation system is never allowed to spray onto the home in any location. Also, be sure to look for signs of erosion or run-off which could be an indication of an issue needing attention.
Getting an irrigation inspection will allow you to make sure that everything is working properly, and will allow you to find defects before they are able to get worse and cause significant damage to your property.
What Does an Irrigation Inspection Cover?
Although irrigation systems are mostly underground, we can still tell a lot about the integrity of the system by visually looking at a few things.
- Heads, rotors, bubbler & nozzle conditions
- Backflow preventers
- Pressure differentials
- Location of sprinkler heads
- Valves, manifolds & visible connections
