Controllers & Sensors
A correctly programmed sprinkler timer will help save water with any system. Controllers prevent over-watering your lawn by controlling the amount of time that each station/zone runs for. Most controllers come with the seasonal adjustment feature, allowing you to change the season without reprogramming your timer. Using a Hybrid timer will not only allow you to adjust your run times accordingly it will also save on your electricity bill. A Hybrid controller will run on either batteries or a 24VAC transformer.
The best water source for your landscape comes straight from the sky. Rain is packed with natural nutrients that can make your lawn look great. If your sprinkler system turns on during or right after a rain storm it is diluting those nutrients. When equipped with a rain sensor or weather station, controllers calculate how much water your lawn needs and adjusts the watering times, keeping it from running during rain storms or windy days.
