Wasting Water is Costly
More than 40 percent of residential irrigation water is lost due to evaporation, runoff, overwatering, or improper system design/installation/maintenance. Save money, time and natural resources when you keep your system in tip-top condition with a mid-season inspection.
Cutting irrigation waste will make a huge positive impact on the environment. Read more about water conservation , find water conservation tips and news on other important water issues here. Put every drop of water to work by minimizing evaporation and waste.
Make maintaining your yard easy and convenient:
You may want to consider going high tech with one of the newer ‘smart’ timers. These new devices strategically control when the system waters and they are designed to conserve water. These timers will automatically update your watering schedule to allow for changes in water needs throughout the year. A smart controller will automatically reduce the watering times as the weather gets cooler and less water is needed. Then as the weather begins to warm up, the controller will add more watering time. The way this typically works is that you set the controller for a default maximum watering time, based on the hottest time of year. Then the controller reduces that time amount by a percentage value when less water is needed.
