Sprinkler Sytem Inspection & Backflow Test

Price : $155.00

We will throughly inspect all components of the sprinkler system and provide educatation of the sprinkler system operation to you and your family. This is performed by one of our ASSE backflow prevention certified irrigation professionals. The purpose of the Irrigation System Inspection is to examine and test every component of the system, and to provide a detailed inspection report of the findings. The Inspection includes:

 

  • Backflow Prevention Assembly Test
    The backflow prevention assembly prevents potable water from contamination due to backflow. Missouri and Kansas, as well as each municipality, have rules and regulations pertaining to the installation and continual testing of these device. Nearly every entity requires the backflow device to be tested annually by a certified tester, who after testing the device files a report with the appropriate entity. This service is included in the Stonebridge Outdoor Irrigation System Inspection and is always the first step. The backflow test also provides the system water supply pressure. Without a properly functioning backflow prevention assembly, further testing of the irrigation system is not possible.

 

  • Controller
    The system controller (often located in the garage) is inspected for functionality and programming. The technician records the controller make and model for the inspection report. At this time our technician also determines if a rain sensor is present and functional.
  • Complete System Run-Through

    A complete run-through of the irrigation system involves running every zone individually. During the run time inspection, the technician inspects to answer the following questions:

    Heads & Rotors 
  • How many are there on the zone?
  • What make and model are they?
  • Is there any damage to heads or rotors?
  • Is the coverage sufficient for the area?
  • Are any nozzles clogged?
  • Are any heads or rotors leaking?
  • Have any heads sunken due to ground settling?

    Turf
    Are there any dry or brown spots? This can indicate insufficient coverage.
    Are there any areas that are overly saturated or where water is pooling? This may indicate an underground leak.

    Pressure
    Does the pressure to the heads and rotors appear too high or low? 

    Programming
    Does the programmed schedule include appropriate run time length and frequency based on system coverage and any environmental factors?
    The technical will flag any heads, rotors, or other areas of note and include them in the inspection report.
