Smart Irrigation Reduces Water Waste

Published on Jul 19, 2019 at 10:17a.m.

Problems with home sprinkler systems often go unnoticed. Sprinklers are timed to run early in the morning when residents aren’t likely to see a broken or misaligned sprinkler head. Automated systems usually run every other day, regardless of a rainy forecast. The cumulative effect of inefficient and overzealous watering is taking a toll on our water supply.

Smart irrigation controllers work with pre-existing residential lawn sprinkler systems to water lawns efficiently. The controllers monitor rainfall and temperature to water only when necessary. Users report data to the controller to make sure their yard, including gardens and sunny patches of grass, stay green. Residents that switch to smart controllers save an estimated 30,000 gallons of water each year.
