For collaborative partnerships
There are many reasons why smart irrigation just makes sense. The concept is simple: synchronize and monitor irrigation systems to use water more responsibly. Yet, somehow, it still manages to slip under the radar of many irrigation companies who are not offering conservation solutions to their clients. However, as environmental responsibility becomes a higher national priority, many consumers are starting to realize that there are ways to lower their water expenses and improve their water efficiency with simple techniques and products. At SMART Watering Systems (SWS) we work directly with our clients and their landscape architects and contractors, to educate and recommend the best solutions for their specific site and requirements.
If we take a holistic approach to landscape and irrigation design and consider not just new installation, but future maintenance, we will use less water. At Smart Watering Systems (SWS) we are working hard to get involved with landscape projects from their inception – not to replace landscape architects or contractors – but to establish collaborative partnerships that put more focus on water conservation.
Together we can design quality irrigation systems that better reflect different plant species water requirements. We can manage and monitor irrigation systems remotely and make necessary schedule changes when they are appropriate. We can also take a harder look at advance irrigation control products that use data gathered from weather station networks and make automatic adjustments based upon accurate weather data.
There are many new conservation based irrigation design practices garnering support and exciting water saving technologies available to reduce our water footprint in the landscape. At SWS, we make it our business to bring these principals and tools to the forefront for SMART irrigation solutions.
Most don't even realize that there are problems with their current system until it's too late.
Unless a current system breaks down, or something dies or drowns, most property and operations managers don’t even realize that there are problems until they have wasted millions of litres of water and thousands of dollar.
At Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, SWS did a complete irrigation retrofit installing new nozzles and sprinkler heads as well as a weather station on the roof of the building to adjust the watering schedule accordingly. The end result? Yorkdale used 85 percent less water for irrigation and has saved thousands of dollars in the process. See more case studies>
