Environmentally Responsible by Saving Water Outside
Shorter showers, low-flow toilets and high-efficiency water appliances can make a difference in your home to conserve water, but what about outside on your lawn and landscape? Conserva Irrigation was founded on the goal to conserve water through residential irrigation systems and educate customers on why water conservation is important to all of us, both present and future.
A broken sprinkler head or leaking line can waster over 20,000 gallons of water over the course of one season, now imagine if you have several. Saving water outside does not mean you have to sacrifice your lush green lawn, it means its time to find out how to make your system more efficient.
By keeping your lawn and vegetation healthy you are in turn helping the environment.
- Grass reduces greenhouse gas by converting it to life-giving oxygen.
- Grass lowers the Earth’s surface temperature.
- Roots of grass act as a natural water filter reducing contaminates in runoff water before it makes it down to the aquifers.
- Grass absorbs air pollutants for cleaner breathing.
- Grass provides a habitat for a multitude of small creatures such as birds and insects that would not survive without it.
What can you do to help conserve water outside?
70% of the world’s surface is covered by water and only 2.5% of that is freshwater. Only 1% of the total water resources on earth are available for human use. As communities are coming together to get water conservation more widely advocated we must all do our part.
Clearly, at Conserva Irrigation we are passionate about conserving water. To help our customers go the extra mile to be water conscious we perform a full system evaluation and lawn analysis that will render a System Efficiency Score. This score will let us and our technicians know how well your system is performing.
During the system evaluation one of our technicians will run a test on your sprinkler and walk through each zone. We look at every sprinkler head looking for possible line leaks or broken heads.
Once we’ve completed the evaluation we will walk you through the report explaining any repairs, adjustments or upgrades that we recommend to help you run a more efficient irrigation system.
