Residential appointments are typically scheduled from June through August or September with appointment availability varying by location. We schedule appointments Monday through Friday 8am-4pm, and appointments generally last 1-1.5 hours. All evaluations take place on-site at your property. You must have an in-ground sprinkler system that is turned on and in good working order at the time of the appointment.

We encourage you to sign up for the 2024 season now, since we offer appointments on a first-come, first-served basis.
3. Schedule appointment
After you register online, you may have the option to schedule your appointment immediately (only if appointments are available), or we will call or email you once we reach your name on our waitlist to schedule your appointment. Our scheduling emails come from “Slow the Flow” (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Slow the Flow sprinkler evaluations are conducted from June until August or September, depending on the weather and regional availability. Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday. Appointments in each city are limited, so register early for your best chance at receiving an evaluation.
Hang tight! We likely don’t have appointments available in your area just yet or we haven’t reached your name on our waitlist. Once appointments in your area do become available, we will either call you or email you a link to schedule your appointment online. Look for email invites from “Slow the Flow” in your inbox.
Make sure your system is on and is in generally good working order before the appointment. If your backflow preventer is not turned on or your system is not working properly when we arrive, we will not be able to reschedule. Also, an adult (18 years or older) must be on the premises during the entire appointment, so please plan accordingly.
The entire appointment typically lasts an hour to an hour and a half for most residential properties. You (or another adult) need to be on the property for the duration of the appointment. However, while we strongly encourage you to engage in the entire evaluation, you are only required to meet with our associate for the first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes of the appointment.
Our friendly team of trained associates is employed by Resource Central. They will have a Resource Central shirt and name tag and will announce themselves when they arrive at your home.
Our associate will perform a visual inspection of all zones, making minor adjustments where they can and marking down any larger issues. They will then test certain zones to measure how much water the sprinklers put out and how evenly that water is distributed. By the end of the appointment, they will have an efficient watering schedule based off your specific system.
While our associates do look for obvious signs of a leak, our service is not for leak finding, and we cannot fix any leaks. We recommend finding a landscaper if you suspect you have a leak.
You will be emailed your report by the end of the day of your evaluation. If you do not see your report in your inbox, please check your spam box, or email email@example.com to have it resent. If you do not have an email, you will be mailed a paper report within three weeks of the evaluation.
