AuditMaster to help evaluate sprinkler performance
Underhill introduces AuditMaster, a professional irrigation auditing kit that helps trained sports field personnel measure the amount of water that is being applied—and determine if sprinklers are performing to expectations.
Underhill’s AuditMaster LT Kit includes all the tools necessary to audit and evaluate system performance, based on Irrigation Association Guidelines and covered in IA audit classes.
Once an evaluation is complete and results are analyzed, the turf manager may decide to replace underperforming sprinklers; switch out worn nozzles; relocate or adjust heads; or trim landscape obstructions, such as overgrown shrubs and ground covers.
The kit sets up quickly and results are typically determined the same day.
Sports turf irrigation audits will become routine, reports Underhill, especially in California as the state’s Water Conservation Act takes effect.
The AuditMaster kit includes:
A heavy-duty wheeled duffle bag to store the equipment; 30 large CatchCanPro cups with inches and centimeters; 100-foot measuring tape; ¾” POC hose bib with 160 psi pressure gauge; pitot tube attached to a 30-inch flex hose with 160 psi pressure gauge; sprayhead tester adapter with 160 psi pressure gauge; stop watch; anemometer; yellow marking flags (50); 21-inch wire staff and 4” x 5” flag.
CatchCanPro water cups are self-standing and easily anchor into the turf or on adjoining slopes. Constructed from durable polypropylene, the efficient design allows for shorter test times.
