In Australia, about 40% of household water is used outdoors. It is widely accepted from this outdoor water use, up to 50% is waster from inefficient irrigation systems alone. We can’t make water, so as one of our most important resources, we should strive to preserve as much as we can. Conservation techniques can effectively be used on landscapes to save not only water, but money, time and effort, as well as benefiting the natural environment.
Using weather-based controllers can reduce irrigation water use by up to 70%.
Skydrop and the Weathermatic Smartline allow you to input soil type, plant type, sprinkler type, shade and slope angle settings so that watering is tailored precisely to each individual zone of a landscape. They continually optimize real-time weather and data to generate custom and dynamic watering schedules to meet the changing needs of a landscape, ensuring that just the right amount of water is delivered at the right time.
