People everywhere are concerned about money and how they can save more of it. You might not think of it, but an inefficient irrigation system could be a significant contributor to your family’s high water bill. Whether you are watering too frequently, using too much water at once, or you have an undetected leak in your system, a poorly-maintained landscape irrigation system can drain your bank account fast. Here are some of the ways that improving your landscape irrigation system can help you save money.
Reduce Routine Water Consumption With Well-Adjusted Sprinklers
Have you given any thought to how much water your landscape irrigation system distributes each time you turn it on? Many homeowners measure how much they water by looking at the amount of time that their sprinklers are on, but that does not indicate your actual water usage. Diagnostic tools such as the “tuna can test” and inspections from irrigation professionals can help you determine just how efficient your system is at distributing water evenly. With well-adjusted sprinkler heads and drip emitters, you can ensure that you are watering your entire property evenly, without overwatering or underwatering specific areas.
Avoid Unnecessary Waste With a Smart Irrigation Controller
Another major source of costly water waste is when landscape irrigation systems turn on when they do not need to. Rain is common in Delaware, and homeowners without smart irrigation controllers and rain sensors may inadvertently water their properties while it is raining. Installing weather sensors or a smart irrigation controller can help you avoid wasting water by automatically canceling scheduled waterings before, during, or after forecasted rain.
Prevent Catastrophic Water Damage With Routine Inspections and Maintenance
One of the most valuable investments you can make in your landscape irrigation system is an irrigation maintenance plan. Poorly-maintained systems can waste massive amounts of water through broken heads, leaks, and more. Hiring the team at Sposato Irrigation to inspect and maintain your system is an important step towards an efficient, low-waste irrigation system.
