Irrigation Efficiency Tips

Outdoor watering can increase your water demand during the summer.

Use these tips to make your outdoor irrigation (sprinkler) system more efficient and save on your bottom line:

  • Lawns need only about half an inch of water per week. This applies to all methods of watering, including automatic irrigation systems. Limiting your watering to half an inch per week will stop runoff due to over-watering.

  • Integrate a rain and/or moisture sensor into your system so your sprinklers don’t switch on during - or right after - a rainfall.

  • Inspect and repair hardware deficiencies every year

  • Use a smart controller to better manage your irrigation schedule to and watering needs throughout the year
