Water Efficiency Rebate saving residents money

Our hot weather has many people watering their lawns. An efficient irrigation system controller can save you money on water while keeping your grass green, and you can get a $100 rebate on your purchase. Recently we spoke to one Brooklyn Park homeowner who put in his new controller this year. 

Why did you decide to buy a water efficient irrigation system controller? 

I needed to upgrade my 30-year-old controller and was tired of forgetting to turn it off when it rains or adjusting the timings during hot or cold snaps. I heard about the new generation of controllers which were connected to Wi-Fi and the local weather conditions and thought it was time to make the investment.  

What differences have you noticed? 

Since it reads my local forecast and does not water when rain is predicted or if it has rained heavily over the last 3 days, it doesn’t over water my lawn or waste water. It also won’t water when the predicted high temperature is too low. In addition, it gives you a regular reading how much water you have saved from your normal schedule.

What would you tell others about your water efficient irrigation system controller? 

It really takes all the guesswork out of managing your lawn irrigation system. It works all on its own and you don’t need to have those unreliable rain sensors attached you your system either. 

Anything else you’d like to share? 

The ability to remotely control my system from my smart phone is a great added bonus. I can cancel or start a watering session anytime directly from my phone no matter where I am. Saving water, lowering my bill and the added convenience of total remote control makes the investment a no brainer.
