Salt River Project (SRP) and Ewing Outdoor Supply are offering a great deal to upgrade your irrigation controller to the latest and greatest technology for landscape water efficiency.
Here in the Arizona Desert, it has been found that up to 70% of household water use is outdoors! According to the EPA, if the average sized lawn in the U.S. is watered for 20 minutes every day for 7 days, it’s like running the shower constantly for 4 days or taking more than 800 showers! By replacing a traditional clock-based irrigation controller with a WaterSense®-labeled smart controller, the average home can cut irrigation water use by at least 20% and save up to 20,000 gallons annually.
What are “Smart” Irrigation Controllers?
Smart irrigation controllers are Wi-Fi-based devices that can automatically adjust landscape watering schedules to reduce water use. They use live weather data and information about site conditions such as plant type, slope, and soil type to apply the appropriate amount of water throughout the year. Learn more on the Efficient Irrigation page.
