Commercial Evaluations
W.I.S.E. Guys Commercial Evaluations


There is an enormous amount of waste in commercial irrigation systems. More often than not, the maintenance company is usually assigned the task of looking for major leaks. Anything else is ignored.

What is the W.I.S.E. Guys commercial program?


The W.I.S.E. Guys commercial program is a service offered to cities, commercial businesses, Homeowner's Associations, and any other large users of irrigation water. The purpose of the program is to thoroughly evaluate the system to supply the owner or manager with the information required to properly repair or update the system to conserve water.

How much does an evaluation cost?


Since each commercial system is different in the number of controllers and zones as well as the overall size and layout, each project must be reviewed individually. Once an agreed upon cost for the evaluation is determined, the client will contract directly with Vepo or an approved W.I.S.E. Guys commercial contractor to perform the evaluation.

How does the program work?


The contractor will review each irrigation controller and will log the individual station run times, cycles, and days set for irrigation. In addition, the contractor will determine the flow of each zone within the system.

The contractor will count the number of times a problem appears in the system for the following eight different problem types.

  • Broken Sprinklers
  • Broken Nozzles
  • Adjust Nozzles
  • Heads Not Aligned
  • Raise Heads
  • Lower Heads
  • Obstructions
  • Overspray
The service identifies if a problem exists for the following additional twelve different problem types.

  • Mismatched Heads
  • Low Head Drainage
  • Poor Head Layout
  • Run Off
  • Under Pressure
  • Over Pressure
  • Puddling
  • Needs Hydrozoning
  • Leak in Main
  • Leak in Lateral
  • Exposed Pipe
  • Exposed Wire
All of the information is then entered into the Vepo proprietary software program and a detailed report is generated.

What will the final evaluation report include?


The report consists of company information, project information, task and objectives, system information, estimates of water waste, educational information, and photographic documentation of problem occurrences.

The report can assist the client in determining a path for repairing the system and conserving water.
