Quick Tips / Sensor Your Water Usage

waterCombat water waste by incorporating rain or moisture sensors in your outdoor sprinkler system.

Moisture sensors tell your sprinklers to spray only when your garden’s dry (and save you up to 40% of your outdoor water use), while rain sensors shut your sprinklers off when it rains (saving you up to 10%).

These are savings that will definitely saturate your next water bill!

Toro Wireless Rain Sensor – rain sensor that lets you choose when your sprinklers should shut off based on rainfall; setup takes as little as 10 minutes ($48).
