Buying a home with a sprinkler system
If you are buying or have bought a house with a sprinkler system, we can inspect the system, teach you how to program the controller, and explain how a sprinkler system works. This service is typically not included with a normal home inspection.
Many times when a home inspector finds a problem with a sprinkler system there are other issues with the sprinkler system that is not detected, therefore we recommend for home buyers to have a sprinkler company do a sprinkler system inspection.
Back Flow Devices
Texas state law
Texas state law requires a backflow preventing device on all sprinkler systems that a License Irrigator installs or repairs. A backflow preventing device prevents water siphoning from your yard into the drinking water. Without a backflow preventing device it is possible to drink water contaminated with yard debris, such as fertilzer.
