Water Efficiency and Irrigation Managment

Optimizing Efficiency

Managing your water footprint

At Smart Watering Systems (SWS) we are certified to use Irrigation best management practices that address our clients’ local landscape needs while minimizing water use. Using the data collected in the initial Water Use Audit, we evaluate the performance of our clients’ irrigation system and compare actual water use to a target irrigation budget based on landscape size and plant material.

Management has its benefits

  • Water use reductions of 30-70 percent with ROI’s within 2 years
  • Detect and minimize damage from leaks and missing heads before waste and damage occurs
  • Protect your landscape investment, reduce hardscape damage and avoid slip/fall liability while reducing operating costs and extending equipment life
  • Properly managed water results in healthier more disease resistant turf & landscapes with less need for fertilizers & pesticides
  • Base your irrigation schedules on actual weather patterns and landscape needs with our Weather Monitoring System

Take advantage of our new service division.

When a leak is detected or other damage occurs you only need to make one call. In fact, if SWS is managing your property, we probably already know about it and one of our professionals is on the way to fix it. Relax and let SWS manage your water.

Management has its benefits

SWS monitors all sizes of irrigation systems and utilizes irrigation management systems that allow multiple sites to be controlled from one computer. These sites are typically parks, universities, Industrial or Commercial real estate assets.  Though monitoring duties vary by property, our services can include: water use reporting, leak detection, system and site inspections and service dispatching. We also provide clients with end-of-the year site visits and water use summaries.

Schedule cost savings

During the Audit process we typically discover that plant and soil relationships have not been factored into the irrigation schedule. Today’s irrigation technology uses less water than ever before with user-controlled thresholds for rainfall and temperature, preventing unnecessary watering. Many times, waste occurs because people don’t know how to use their systems properly. We find we can usually save 15 to 20 percent of water use just by rewriting irrigation schedules.
