Water Checkup

To protect the safety of our staff and community, we have suspended in-person Water Checkups. Instead, City Staff are here to help you over the phone or through a virtual meeting. Please call (805)564-5460 to leave a message for staff assistance.

All City of Santa Barbara water customers are encouraged to get a free water checkup to assess water usage on your property and identify ways to save water and money on water bills. Water checkups are also useful in finding a leak or better understanding your irrigation system. Call (805) 564-5460 to schedule today!

If you are NOT a City of Santa Barbara water customer, free water checkups may be available from your water provider.

What is a Water Checkup?

Water checkups are scheduled for an hour each and are available Monday - Friday. City staff will come to your home or business to:

  • Evaluate all water uses on your property.
  • Provide recommendations to you for improved efficiency for both indoor usage and outdoor usage.
  • Evaluate the irrigation system and provide specific recommendations on irrigation improvements, scheduling, and upgrades.
  • Demonstrate how to read your meter and check for leaks.
  • Develop an irrigation schedule.
  • Provide information on landscaping and irrigation technology and rebate programs.
