Proper professional maintenance of your irrigation system along with responsible use of the latest technologies can save you “buckets” of money this season!

As a certified EPA WaterSense Partner, Irrigation by Design pays attention to irrigation system inspection and maintenance details that make the difference between using water and wasting water. The short animation below from the EPA illustrates steps to ensuring a sprinkler system is working properly.

If you have a clock timer controlled irrigation system that’s not working properly or not tied to a rain sensor, you may be wasting half of the  water you run through your sprinkler system. If your system isn’t programmed incorrectly, or a sprinkler head is pointed in the wrong direction, or you have a leak, or it runs in the rain, you’re wasting water and money. The EPA recommends four simple steps: inspect, connect, direct, and select. If you’re not a do-it-yourself enthusiast or you don’t want to spend your free time tending to a sprinkler system, hiring a certified professional will save you time and money over the life of your system.

Water saving technologies and proactive maintenance will ensure you have a healthy landscape and save money while being environmentally responsible.
