Turning off the lawn sprinkler system during a rain storm, it may seem like a small thing but it saves a lot of water and money. It is a hard thing to remember to do as a Golden homeowner. It is impossible to keep up with Colorado weather, knowing if it will rain at one of your commercial properties. In either situation it is best to allow technology to be utilized.
Most modern irrigation controllers are equipped with a rainsensor bypass option. This allows the circuit to be interupted within the Automatic Sprinkler Controller which shuts off the cycle once the the preset amount of water has fallen (usually 1/2″). This prevents irrigation of an already saturated Denver Garden or lawn. In turn saving you money from literally going down the storm drain. Call today to get a rain sensor installed on your lawn and garden sprinkler system’s controller.
