Checking your property's irrigation system after dry spell

8 June 2018

With water restrictions in Townsville easing over the last few months, it’s important to make sure that your property’s irrigation system is still functioning properly after an extended period without use.
There’s a number of checks that should be performed so that you can find out that your system doesn’t have any hidden leaks and there are no issues with connections.
Importantly, test the system over a recommended period of 10 minutes by ensuring no other water is being used in the house, then checking your meter before and after running the system for this short period of time. You should also manually check all of the sprinklers, ground around the pipes and valve box for any leaks.
