Think you know what accounts for the majority of your water bill? Think again. According to the American Water Works Association Research Foundation, the residential water use for a single family residence in the US breaks out into fairly small and somewhat equal parts…until it comes to your outdoor sprinkler system. In fact, nationally, irrigation waste accounts for up to a staggering 1.5 billion gallons of water a day. Conserva was specifically founded to alleviate this unnecessary and senseless waste.
What's Your Water IQ?
Water is one of the earth’s most abundant resources, yet it’s also one of the most precious and unfortunately, one of the most often wasted. To understand our passion for water conservation, consider these facts.
- Approximately 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water.
- Of that water, 97% is undrinkable salt water.
- And 2% is fresh water frozen in glaciers.
- That leaves 1% of usable water. EPA estimate. The Great Lakes account for 21% of that 1%
- Washing Machine
In 2010, with over ten years of irrigation experience, founders Tom Olson and Russ Jundt were increasingly disturbed by the tremendous amount of water wasted by the typical irrigation system. They founded Conserva Irrigation to directly address this waste, making Conserva the only irrigation company founded solely on the principle of conservation.
Combining the latest in conservation technology and design, our irrigation solutions are the result of considerable study in water dynamics, environmental concerns, and best horticultural practices. We’ve also worked hard to make water conservation economically feasible. In fact, most customers who upgrade with us enjoy 100% payback in less than three years, and our typical upgrades reduce water use by 40 to 60%.
Conserva Irrigation sprinkler systems greatly reduce or eliminate the runoff that contributes to sewage overflows, protecting your drinking water sources while conserving your community’s water supply. With Conserva Irrigation on your side, you can rest easy knowing your irrigation system is as environmentally friendly as possible.
