Our Team Will Maximize Water Potential
Our water specialists know what tools you need to improve water efficiency and have the knowledge to install and convert existing irrigation systems. Strategies and tools that we use for irrigation management include:
Using GIS (geographic information system) mapping allows us to show you the water supply systems on your property and can help you to make informed decisions about future water-related construction. This helps you to better understand our proposed upgrades and make more informed decisions. Access your information using any connected device, wherever you are. This information can also be used by contractors to help them avoid damaging your irrigation infrastructure.
Hydropoint and smart controllers
Hydropoint is a weather and evapotranspiration-based automation tool that will help your irrigation system adapt to changing environmental conditions. It creates efficient scheduling of water use that automatically adjusts without supervision. Using smart controllers can give you up to 30% in water savings by helping you keep an eye on your landscape, adjust settings as you see fit, and respond quickly to problems from anywhere.
Converting spray heads to drip irrigation
Many high-volume spray heads overspray, and end up watering pavement more than your plants. We can convert these to low volume drip irrigation systems that will prevent run-off and overspray. The slow release ensures that plants can properly absorb water and can lead to water savings of up to 70%.
Retrofit sprinklers with MP rotator, pressure regulating spray bodies and check valves
MP rotator nozzles use revolutionary design to ensure peak efficiency. By utilizing larger droplet size and a rotating stream of water delivery, less water goes to waste. When used with pressure regulating spray bodies to achieve the desired pressure and check valves to ensure water lines don’t drain, you will use up to 30% less water.
