If your irrigation system, as a whole, hasn't been inspected in several years, there are a multitude of problems it may have. If your rain sensor isn't functioning, then, of course, your sprinkler system is going to water your lawn while it's raining or immediately after. This is unnecessary and ultimately bad for your lawn. If your sprinkler system is overwatering your lawn, you can expect to see stunted root development, fungal growth, mold, insect breeding and even the possibility of the death of your lawn or landscape.

At Conserva Irrigation of SWFL, Inc., we utilize smart irrigation technology to ensure your lawn is only watered when it's absolutely necessary. If your sprinkler system runs on city water, you can expect to see a reduction in water usage for irrigation by up to 60%! Wouldn't it be nice to have your lawn looking lush and green all year all while using less water to do so? That's precisely our business model at Conserva Irrigation. Less Water. More Savings. Healthy Landscape.

While having a functioning rain sensor is key to ensuring you're not overwatering your lawn and, simply put, wasting water and money, it's also important to ensure your controller is properly programmed. If you have a complex controller and aren't sure how to correctly program it, make sure to call a professional irrigation technician. There have been instances where we've seen controllers set to run for 500%+ their correct duration and overall amount. Remember, your controller is going to dictate how long each zone is watered and how frequently. If it's set incorrectly, your lawn will certainly suffer for it.
