RE-EVALUATE YOUR OLD SPRINKLER SYSTEM
Everyone is familiar with the above-ground sprinkler system depicted in photo sample 1. Advances in technology have greatly improved the efficiency of spray heads and sprinklers systems. For example, freeze and rain sensors are now available. We recommend a thorough evaluation of your current system to determine if updates are necessary.
PROBLEM: Irrigation using outdated sprinkler systems cause water waste through evaporation, runoff into stormwater drains, and above-ground wide area watering.
SOLUTION: Install a modern drip irrigation system linked to a timer that delivers just the right amount of water on a pre-determined schedule. With advances in technology, these systems are more efficient, use less water by directly targeting and benefitting plant roots, and help replenish scarce groundwater.
ADVANTAGE: Another great advantage is that during water restrictions months, drip irrigation complies with water saving mandates and one is not bound to the restrictions. Keep in mind though that drip irrigation is not appropriate for all situations such as lawn and seasonal color.
