Free Irrigation System Check-ups

 

As a service to our customers, Dallas Water Utilities is conducting FREE automatic irrigation system check-ups.

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has determined that homes with in-ground automatic irrigation systems use 35% more water than those without irrigation systems. And those households using automatic timers for their irrigation systems use 47% more than their neighbors with in-ground systems operating their systems manually.

Poor irrigation scheduling—watering too often and for too long—is the primary source of water waste associated with landscape irrigation. You may be using a lot more water than your lawn needs and if you are a Dallas Water Utilities customer, you can have a FREE irrigation system check-up by a licensed landscape irrigation specialist. These check-ups have saved other customers hundreds of dollars per year on their water bill.

These check-ups can help improve the efficiency of your existing irrigation system by identifying:

  • Programming errors
  • Leaks in the system
  • Broken or misaligned equipment
  • Problems with pressure (too high or too low)
  • Coverage problems

The Irrigation Specialists will also make recommendations such as:

  • Programming suggestions
  • Turf water requirements
  • Possible equipment upgrades
  • Repair and maintenance tips

Our goal in Water Conservation is to help you save water! All suggestions are subject to the homeowner’s discretion, but each suggestion will save you money.
