The process begins with a thorough site inspection. We’ll go over your whole sprinkler system checking for misaligned, blocked, clogged or broken sprinkler heads, leaks, dry areas, improper hydrozoning, or wasted water (such as spraying onto the building or into the street). During the audit, we’ll also determine your soil type and root depth. Why? Different kinds of soil have different watering needs, and plants only need to be watered to the full depth of their roots and not beyond. When we’re done, we’ll give you a bid for any recommended changes.
The audit starts after repairs and revisions are finished.
We’ll measure how much water the grass in your yard is receiving from the sprinklers by placing catch cans in a grid layout for each zone. When we’re done with grass, we’ll measure how fast your sprinkler system “rains” in your landscape beds.
At this point, we’ve gathered a whole lot of information. We plug all that info into our software, which helps us create a custom watering schedule specific to your yard’s needs. We can also provide you with projected water use, projected water savings, recommendations on adjusting your system to changing weather, and an estimate of how quickly your water savings will pay for the cost of the audit.
We’re committed to conserving water, promoting green, healthy landscapes and saving you money, too. How do we do all three? By designing sprinkler systems that direct water where it’s needed, when it’s needed, and using the best quality sprinkler products available.
By getting these important details right up front, we save you water and money in the long run, all while keeping your yard looking great. If you’ve got an older system, that’s no problem – we’ll get it running as efficiently as possible.
