Smart Controllers for Irrigation Systems: Save Water and Energy

Did you know that over watering your yard can be just as harmful as not watering it enough? Smart controllers for irrigation systems help residents in St Paul conserve water and help to prevent over watering.

Smart controllers for irrigation systems are sensors that are associated with your irrigation system. The controllers sense how much precipitation your property has received with a rain sensor. If your lawn has received enough water with rainfall alone, the smart controllers for irrigation systems will shut off your water sprinklers. You can also program the smart controllers for irrigation systems to only water your lawn at certain times of the day and week.
