We live in a “smart” world with smartphones, smart homes, and smart cars. So, shouldn’t your irrigation system be smart, too? With a smart solution from Conserva Chattanooga, you’ll reap the benefits of a healthy lawn while conserving water and reducing costs.
Find out what makes our offering so smart!
What Is Smart Irrigation?
Traditional sprinkler systems are water wasters. In fact, a seven-zone system uses approximately 2,500 gallons of water every time it runs. Most of that is waste, as these sprinklers just follow a time schedule to water, not considering other factors like weather and soil moisture.
Smart irrigation is different. It’s an autonomous system that includes three key parts:
- Weather sensor: Collects data based on conditions.
- Soil sensor: Provides information on saturation.
- Controller: Receives data from both sensors and, based on that, determines which zones need water.
Because the sprinklers operate in correlation with environment data, you can use up to 60% less water.
Sprinklers Contribute Substantially to Water Waste
Water is a precious and finite resource. The waste of it is bad for the planet and your landscape. Experts estimate that irrigation systems waste 1.5 billion gallons of water a day. To counter this, Conserva designed more innovative sprinkler systems to conserve water. It combines conservation technology, water dynamics, and horticultural best practices.
Along with the sensors and only providing water when necessary, the solution reduces or eliminates runoff, which contributes to sewage overflows. If you want to be environmentally responsible, a smart irrigation system is a smart choice.
Smart Means Savings
With a smart irrigation system, you really do save water. Beyond the environmental impact, you’ll find that this approach to watering is more beneficial to your lawn. Each area receives the precise amount of water it needs. Over-watering of zones is just as bad as not watering them. If you want your Chattanooga property to look lush and green, the right amount of moisture matters!
You can save on water usage, which is great for conservation efforts. You’ll also save on water bills. Standard sprinklers water based on schedules only, never taking into account that it rained yesterday. With effective and accurate watering, the cost to do so decreases significantly. The investment in a new irrigation system will easily pay for itself in no time.
