I received this letter from the City of San Antonio Plumbing Division saying that I must have my lawn irrigation system inspected and send them the report, otherwise they would cut off my water supply?!? I have only been a homeowner for 6 months, but this is the first time I have ever heard I need to do such a thing. I have not been able to find much information about it on the internet either. So every homeowner in SA needs to have have their sprinklers inspected every single year? Anyone knows of a good inspector they would recommend? I live in the NW off I-10. How much does it cost? Thanks.

I have never heard of such a thing before......from what I researched below..it is looks like it applies to newly installed systems or professionally repaired systems.
Just an idea..if you bought you home six months ago...why dont you call whoever inspected your home and ask them about it? Based on the safety requirements in the first document..I would think a home inspector would have checked those things before you bought your home. Good luck and let us know what happens.

Your backflow prevention device needs to be inspected every other year. It costs about $45, and the person that you choose to perform the service will send in the paperwork for you.

Many neighborhood newsletters have ads for backflow inspections.

Pobre is likely correct - the city stays on folks w/backflow devices pretty hard....

I use Alamo Irrigation.

When inspection time rolls around, I fax them a copy of my inspection form the city sends in the mail. They do the inspection within 2-3 weeks and submit the completed form to the city. (I don't have to be home when they inspect.) Then Alamo sends me a bill in the mail. I believe they charge the aforementioned $45 for the service. It couldn't be more convenient to do it this way.
