Lawn Sprinkler/Irrigation System Inspection


A lawn sprinkler/irrigation system inspection is a great time saving tool to give you the best lawn in the neighborhood. Before you purchase a home with a sprinkler system, have it inspected! Even though most of the sprinkler system is not visible and located underground, a knowledgeable home inspector will inspect the sprinkler operation including a visible inspection of the controllers, connections, improper sprinkler head locations, pressure differentials, drains, and sensors.  Water meters are also inspected as a means of uncovering any possible leaks. Sprinkler system leaks and failures can lead to high water bills and potential damage to your new home.

It is recommended to periodically watch your sprinkler system in operation to assure proper spray angles and shutoff. A professional irrigation system technician should remove all water from the lines before winter to avoid underground waterline damage from freezing.

The benefits of a lawn sprinkler/irrigation system inspection include:
