Lawn Irrigation Inspections
At ACL Home Inspections we offer Lawn Irrigation System Inspections as an additional service to our full home inspections.
This is a visual inspection to determine if the lawn irrigation system is functioning properly and the components are in working order. The inspection will not determine if the lawn irrigation system is providing adequate water to the lawn and plants.
In order for us to inspect the lawn irrigation system, the following must be turned on by the homeowner prior to testing:
- Water to the sprinkler system
- The back flow device
- And if equipped, the oscillation device
Also, if we have access to the water meter, it can be used as an important troubleshooting instrument. We can possibly determine if there are leakages or blockages based on water flow for each zone.
We will inspect the following during our lawn irrigation system inspection:
- Water flow for each zone
- Busted heads
- Spraying on hard surfaces
- Heads that are tilted or not plumb
- Head alignment (making sure they are watering where wanted)
- Obstructions in the spray pattern
- Standing water around the head
Since lawn irrigation systems can have anywhere from 1 to 20 zones, and between 1 and 8 heads per zone, the actual testing of the system can be lengthy, up to an hour or more.
