Every day, residential outdoor water use is responsible for more than an estimated 7 billion gallons of water; most of that is attributed to landscape irrigation. It’s estimated that as much as 50% of this water is wasted due to overwatering and inefficiencies in irrigation methods and systems. That means there’s a lot of wasted money that goes along with that overwatering.
However, the easy-to-use weather-sensing irrigation we install significantly reduces overwatering, and wasted money, by assessing weather conditions and applying water only when plants need it. Our weather-sensing irrigation recognizes local real-time weather and combines that information with your specific landscaping to tailor watering schedules for your property—turning on and off your watering system at the appropriate times. The result is your plants get an accurate amount of watering without you having to worry about wasted water or money.
Monitoring Your Water Needs
A weather sensor works with a smart controller to monitor temperature and rainfall and adjust watering schedules accordingly. The controller uses a built-in database of weather information for the homeowner’s specific geographic area to adjust watering needs all year long.
Other irrigation controllers waste water by requiring two or more zones to be on the same watering schedule. The weather-sensing controller enables users to program each landscape zone, which accommodates the different flow rates of each sprinkler type and the different needs of plants.
