A checklist for your landscape

Just one broken or missing sprinkler component in an irrigation system could waste as much as 1,000 gallons of water per week. Making repairs to your irrigation system could save thousands of gallons of water and hundreds of dollars in water costs when irrigating. That’s why it is so important to keep your sprinkler system operating in tip-top shape.

This landscape checklist can help you conduct periodic check-ups on your system throughout the year. If you identify leaking pipes, broken sprinklers, or inefficient irrigation schedules and need help fixing them, seek out an irrigation professional to conduct an audit of your system.

If you decide to update your irrigation system, remember to look for the WaterSense label. WaterSense is a partnership sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Looking for the WaterSense label is a simple way to find products and services that are certified to use at least 20% less water, save energy and perform as well, or better than, non-certified models.
