Irrigation Inspection

What is an irrigation inspection and why do I need it

An irrigation inspection is a full inspection of a home’s sprinkler system and the components that make it up.

The purpose of the inspection is to attempt to detect the presence of irrigation system defects by performing a visual inspection of the system and it is a snapshot of the condition of the system today at the time of inspection.

What to expect from an Irrigation Inspection

During the inspection, our Raintech Technician will assess the following:

  • Sprinkler heads, rotors, bubbler & nozzle conditions
  • Pumps
  • Backflow preventers
  • Sensors
  • Drains
  • Controllers
  • The location of sprinkler heads
  • Valves, manifolds & visible connections

Other items to look at are the nozzles. Which nozzles are used and how they are placed around the property provide key information for maintaining efficient water consumption for the household.

If not installed and maintained properly, a lawn irrigation system can create problems for the health of a property’s lawn.

A faulty system can lead to wasteful water use, or, worse, contamination of the home’s potable water supply.

It’s also critical that the sprinkler heads are not placed too close to the home’s foundation or exterior deck or porch.
Moisture intrusion into the home’s interior can cause significant damage over time, especially if it’s not noticed right away.
Also, wooden deck and porch supports and decking that are soaked by the sprinkler system can become weakened, which can cause a catastrophic failure.

Signs of Irrigation Issues

If you aren’t sure if your irrigation system is working properly, there are some things you can look at and determine that you might need an inspection.

  • Sprinkler heads that aren’t working properly
  • Low and inconsistent water pressure during sprinkler cycles
  • Certain zones aren’t turning on (resulting in large dry patches in the yard while others are green and growing)
  • Leaks and pooling water in a sprinkler zone
  • If the sprinkler head furthest away from the valve is leaking

All to of these issues are tell-tale signs that you might need to get your sprinkler looked at by our professional irrigation inspector.

What are the common problems that the technician will look for

  • Cracked, broken or clogged sprinkler heads
  • Tilted or sunken sprinkler heads
  • Leaking pipes and valves
  • Leaks in the line
  • Disconnected wiring
  • Obstacles and overgrowth
