Free Sprinkler Checkups#
The 2023 season has begun! Select a date and time that works for you and we’ll be there, ready to demystify your irrigation system with a safe and effective checkup.
A free sprinkler checkup 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.
Checkups are scheduled on weekdays and take approximately 90 minutes for homes with automated, underground systems or 30 minutes for homes that water manually with a hose and portable sprinkler.
Homeowners and renters who receive their water from Fort Collins Utilities, ELCO, or Fort Collins-Loveland Water District are eligible. HOA common areas and commercial properties are not.
