Free Sprinkler System Audits

Note: Utilities will be performing sprinkler audits until September 15. After that time, registrations will be added to the list for Spring 2016. Audits are free to Fort Collins Utilities, ELCO and Fort Collins Water District customers. Thank you for helping us conserve water.

A free sprinkler audit helps you save water by using your sprinkler system more effectively. Participants receive a system evaluation and watering schedule, while learning how to find leaks and keep vegetation healthy all summer long.

Audits take approximately 1.5 hours (up to four hours for HOAs) and are scheduled on weekdays.

Sprinkler audits include:

  • visual inspection of each zone to identify problems
  • custom watering schedule
  • recommended system upgrades

Audit does not include system repairs or adjustments. Sprinkler system must be turned on and in good working order.

To qualify for an audit, you must:

  • live in a single-family home or represent an HOA
  • be present for the entire appointment
  • be a Fort Collins Utilities customer, including those served water by Fort Collins-Loveland and ELCO water districts.

Sign up:

  • schedule your appointment online
  • leave a message at 970-416-2666
  • provide your name, address, email, daytime and home phone numbers,and estimated number of zones

If you serve on the board of a Home Owners Association and wish to schedule an audit for your HOA, please call the number above or email . HOA audits often cover larger areas, and therefore require four hours and a larger team than residential audits.
