Just as with any other type of technology, irrigation technology is constantly improving and being upgraded and updated. Is your home’s sprinkler system still utilizing antiquated irrigation technology? Would you know if it were? Here are a few questions that should help:
- Can you operate your irrigation system’s controller from your smartphone or tablet?
- Does your controller communicate wirelessly with your rain or weather sensor?
- Can your sprinkler system’s controller make data calculations and adjust your watering schedule based on that data?
If your sprinkler system can’t do all of these things, your system is out of date. While you may think that your sprinkler system works “just fine”, it is more than likely using more water than it should. In some cases, it could be using hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water more than is necessary over the course of just one season. A perfect example of this your rain sensor. If you run your sprinkler system during the very early morning, you may never know if your system runs when it’s raining or when it’s recently rained. This is an enormous waste of water and money and smart irrigation technology can fix that.
In addition to your sprinkler system’s controller, we also utilize Toro® smart irrigation technology on our spray nozzles and rotors that are designed to utilize much less water than traditional sprinkler heads. Our technicians are trained to combine smart controllers, rain and weather sensors and water-efficient rotors and spray nozzles to reduce your water usage for irrigation by up to 60%. This will ensure you reduce the amount of money you pay for water for irrigation and it will simultaneously ensure your lawn and landscape receives the perfect amount of irrigation.
