Maintenance is crucial for efficient sprinkler systems, but there are plenty of other ways for home and business owners to save water. Irrigation professionals and their clients can incorporate a wide range of modern tools and features to use water wisely. Every landscape is unique, and a stunning array of irrigation solutions can help you deliver just the right amount of water to the grass and plants that need it. Follow these water-saving tips and contact the experts at Sposato Irrigation for efficient landscape irrigation systems.
Add Weather Sensors Prevents Unnecessary Waste
In places like Delaware, the weather isn’t always predictable. The odd summer storm or early spring freeze can pop up out of nowhere, and homeowners don’t always have time to adjust their landscape irrigation systems to compensate. This is where weather sensors come in. Frost, wind, and rain sensors can send signals to your irrigation controller to let it know that it should skip a scheduled watering. Some smart irrigation controllers also use the scheduled forecast for the area to determine what adjustments to make to the watering schedule, if any.
Seasonal Settings Help Save Water
While things like rainstorms and gusts can be a surprise, seasonal changes are fairly predictable. Setting your irrigation controller to seasonal presets can help you avoid overwatering. Your landscape will likely require more water from longer watering times in the summer, spring, and fall months. In the winter and transitional periods, you may need to water less. Many irrigation controllers (even those older or more basic) typically have seasonal presets available.
Use the Right Type of Irrigation with the Appropriate Pressure
Finally, ensure that your landscape irrigation system utilizes appropriate irrigation methods on every inch of your property. Drip emitters can help cut down on waste for plants like trees, shrubs, and flowers, and many irrigation professionals design systems that use drip irrigation and sprinklers. No matter what kind of system you use, ensure proper pressure settings. High water pressure can lead to waste, and many homeowners use pressure regulators to reduce overly high water pressure.
