Can I install my own irrigation system?

Yes, you may install your own irrigation system, but it is preferable and often less costly in the long run to have it done by a State licensed Irrigator. Irrigators are required to know materials and calculations for pressure and how to design zones to save on water usage. An inspection is required. A licensed master plumber MUST pull a permit to install the backflow device. The device must be tested by someone who is certified. The test paperwork must be left on-site for the inspector to pick up at time of inspection. Drip irrigation is required if the grassy area is 4’ of less.
