Desert communities like Phoenix Arizona and surrounding cities continue to experience growing concern as the demand for precious but limited water resources continues to rise. Multi-housing communities, home owner organizations and large commercial complexes with common area landscaping are looking for ways to conserve water resources and reduce monthly water utility bills. The quickest way to make a significant impact on water management practices is to install smart water controllers as an integral part of the overall landscape management plan.
Smart watering technology was originally put in place only on large commercial properties and golf courses that had their own small weather stations on site. Now, with most local weather stations feeding their data to various internet weather sites, this weather data is available to smart watering controllers through a simple wireless internet connection.
So, what really makes a water controller smart? Several added features make a controller truly smart.
Scheduling: Like other systems, these controllers have the ability to turn valves off and on at programmed times. But, a smart controller can also calculate weather conditions and adjust to optimize water usage.
Remote access: You can manage controllers from anywhere an internet connection is available.
Alerts: Controllers can measure flow and detect system anomalies like a leak or line break and alert the irrigation technician.
Evolving: The latest smart controllers can evolve as technology changes and improves with periodic updates.
The cost savings of implementing smart water can be huge! Most properties near Phoenix experience a minimum of 20% savings and some as high as 35-40%. After converting to smart controllers, the return on investment time is approximately one year in most cases. In arid regions, smart water management just makes sense as water utility prices continue to rise while the price of technology is decreasing.
These smart irrigation systems require smart and experienced landscape professionals to properly implement and get the most value from them. Once a new system in place, it is important to maintain a close relationship with an experienced landscaping contractor. Smart controllers are not a set-it-and-forget-it solution, proper training and real in-the-field experience play a big role in the long-term success of your smart irrigation plan. If you are searching for a water conserving, cost saving solution for your property, get in touch with your landscaping contractor to audit your current watering and irrigation plan. There is a better way to manage you landscaping when it comes to water use and distribution.
