Weather Based Irrigation Control Systems
Experts estimate that up to 50% of residential landscaping irrigation is wasted due to over-watering from inefficient irrigation systems. Weather-based irrigation controllers can help to significantly reduce this inefficiency and over-watering issues.
Weather-based irrigation controllers use local weather and landscape conditions to tailor irrigation schedules to actual conditions on the site rather than following the strict, preset schedule set by a clock timer controller.
SoCal WaterSmart estimates that weather-based irrigation controllers offer the opportunity to save an average of 13,500 gallons per year.
- Irrigation controller must be a WaterSense labeled product.
- Irrigation controller must be installed per manufacturer’s specifications.
