Upgrade To A Water Efficient "Smart Controller"
Landscape contractors can help you upgrade your current irrigation controller to a "Smart Controller." Smart Controllers are one of the newest water saving innovations in irrigation controllers. Smart Controllers use weather information and sensors to efficiently manage frequency of watering times. The controllers have the ability to turn off automatically during rain, high wind or low temperature to reduce unnecessary watering. Smart Controllers can reduce your outdoor water use by up to 30 percent and possible rebates for an upgrade may be available through your local government.
