Water Conservation from an Irrigation Company?
You may think sprinkler systems are the antithesis of water conservation, but that’s not always the case. In fact, one could argue that a truly water-efficient irrigation system uses less water than any other watering methods. Think about how effective it is to leave a standalone sprinkler out in different areas of your yard for hours on end. How much of that water is evaporating due to the hot weather in the middle of the summer? That’s just one small aspect of what makes smart irrigation technology the future of significant water conservation.
With Conserva, your irrigation system can use 40 - 60% less water, thus saving your lawn, saving your wallet, and making an environmental impact.
What Makes up Most of Your Home’s Water Waste?
While your home may be outfitted with the latest in eco-friendly, low-flow, and water-efficient appliances, your biggest water-waster is actually outside! Your sprinkler system uses (and often wastes) more water than all of your indoor water appliances combined.
In fact, nearly 60% of the water your home uses on a daily basis comes from irrigation. Let us put this into perspective: The average home utilizes about 100 gallons of water indoors every single day. While that may seem like a lot, a seven-zone sprinkler system uses approximately 2,500 gallons of water every single time the system cycles. How much of that water went right down the drain without benefitting your lawn? That’s the really scary question.
Conserva Irrigation offers smart irrigation technology that will reduce the water usage by your irrigation system by up to 60%. Your system will only power on when it’s absolutely necessary and will deliver the perfect amount of water to each zone in your yard. You’ll notice this reduction in water usage on your significantly reduced monthly water bill. You’ll also be taking part in the preservation and conservation of one of Earth’s most precious and finite resources.
Why Should I Care about Water Conservation?
Did you know only 3% of Earth’s water is fresh water? Even more astounding is the fact that only 30% of that 3% is accessible. With roughly only 0.9% of the Earth’s water being usable fresh water, we should all care about water conservation. Water is a luxury we’re lucky to have.
Every time you use your sink, shower, toilet, dishwasher, washing machine, or sprinkler system, that water has to be treated before being reintroduced as clean, potable water. The cost of this equates to approximately 2% of the entire energy usage in the United States and, according to the EPA, is “…adding 45 million tons of greenhouse gases annually.” This means that by reducing your water consumption, whether it be through low-flow toilets or through an incredibly water-efficient irrigation system, you’re also helping to reduce the electricity used to treat unclean water. It’s a win-win!
Conserva Irrigation excels at finding and addressing inefficient irrigation system problems. Many homeowners assume there’s nothing wrong with their sprinklers as long as they don’t see geysers shooting water onto their yards. This is almost never the case. If you take the time to analyze your sprinkler system, you may notice some leaking heads or water pooling in areas that it shouldn’t. Our team has the tools and experience needed to quickly detect these issues.
Conserva Irrigation and Toro have teamed up to ensure irrigation systems operate at an optimal, efficient level with the help of smart irrigation technology. If your system only powers on and provides water to your vegetation when it’s absolutely needed, you can reduce your water usage by up to 60%, saving you money and conserving water at the same time.
