COMMERCIAL

Slow the Flow offers a quick and impactful way to evaluate the irrigation practices of your HOA or commercial property and makes simple suggestions for changes that will reduce waste and runoff.

The service will provide suggestions that will deliver measurable improvements in water use reduction, saving your HOA or commercial property money, and supporting community conservation goals.

How long will it take?

The appointment duration depends on the size of the property’s irrigation system. A person responsible for the maintenance of the landscape must be present for the first 1-2 hours of the inspection.

  • Tests to determine distribution uniformity—how evenly the water is covering the intended area

  • Soil sample to determine root depth and soil type
