Get “smart” about running your sprinklers
Did you know that residential water use in the United States accounts for nearly 9 billion gallons of water each day and most of it goes toward watering our landscapes? And about 30 percent of it is wasted?

You can help make a difference and water more efficiently by installing a WaterSense-labeled weather-based sprinkler timer. Instead of running according to a preset schedule, weather-based sprinkler timers adjust for local weather conditions and run based on the needs of your plants and soil conditions. The controllers use real-time measurements, historic weather information and information about your yard to determine the precise amount of water that is needed.

Replacing a standard clock timer sprinkler controller with a WaterSense-labeled weather-based timer can save you over 8,000 gallons of water annually. And there are even models available that you can control from your phone and sync up with your other “smart” devices at home.

You’ll have a healthier yard, use less water and you’ll no longer have to worry about setting it.

We also offer a rebate that covers most, if not all of the cost, of a new weather-based controller. Visit for details.
