Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditing

In addition, a CID has a thorough knowledge of all irrigation equipment including its selection, use, and restrictions. The mission of the Irrigation Association, a non-profit, North American organization, is to improve the products and practices used to manage water resources and to help shape the worldwide business environment of the irrigation industry.

Built to Last
Built to last. That's how Spring Irrigation installs your system. Quality equipment and materials are the first step in the installation of a durable, dependable system. However, without strict quality control and uncompromising standards, the best equipment means nothing. Attention to detail. We know that all elements are important. The best way to avoid future headaches is to take the time to perform the work carefully the first time. After all, we warranty our workmanship for 5 years.
We always emphasize thorough design and planning to assure the efficient use of our most valuable of resources... water. Valuable not only to our environmental future, but to you! Each year, water rates continue to creep upwards. Your home is an investment, your lawn included. An efficiently designed system is the difference between investment and liability where water is concerned. Spring Irrigation employs a variety of strategies and tools in the war on water waste. Implementing things such as automatic rain sensors, matched precipitation nozzles on all heads, and precise scheduling, are a few ways to keep that investment green without spending too much green!
When installing a sprinkler system, as with any project, design and planning are the foundation of success. To plan an effective, efficient irrigation system, the designer must have experience and education -- the cornerstones to effective water management. To that end, The Irrigation Association strives to provide comprehensive programs and services in the rapidly changing technology of the water resource field. Successfully attaining the IA Certification means more than simply passing the examinations or studying a series of books or videotapes. Certification with the Irrigation Association is centered around a commitment to excellence in education and practice. It is this dedication that has persuaded over 5,000 Irrigation Specialists to strive to attain this level of professionalism. Richard Stelljes (CID, CLIA) of Spring Irrigation among them. Meeting the difficult demands for Golf Course Irrigation Design Certification, Commercial Irrigation Design Certification, as well as, Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor Certification.
Don't be fooled by manufacturer certification, like "Toro Certified Installer" status. There's a huge difference between a marketing gimmick and actual IA certified status. The IA has evolved into the governing body in our industry, it is the final word to all state level irrigation groups and now provides the guidelines for licensing in several states (Michigan does not require licensing of irrigation professionals). IA Certification indicates that the successful applicant has:
- A minimum of three years of irrigation-related experience/education.
- Successfully passed a series of written examinations covering both general irrigation subjects and specialty areas.
- Agreed to follow a specific Code of Ethics.
Certified Irrigation Designers engage in the preparation of irrigation designs to meet the needs of a particular project, selecting the most effective irrigation equipment or materials for the application and utilizing the information in such a manner that efficient and cost-effective irrigation designs are produced which meet the watering requirements for the plant material being irrigated.
