New Water-Saving Sprinkler System
by Charlie Nardozzi
With summer droughts hitting many areas and the price of water rising, many homeowners are looking for ways to save water. One of the biggest summer users of water is the automated lawn sprinkler system. Normally these systems are manually operated and don?t take into account the daily weather patterns. For example, it?s not uncommon to see lawn sprinklers turned on during a rainstorm.
Now a new automated lawn sprinkler control system is available that adjusts your sprinklers to the local weather conditions. The Cyber-Rain Wireless Sprinkler Control program analyzes the local weather and seasonal conditions and adjusts your sprinkler system accordingly. It saves time, water, and plant replacement costs by stopping the sprinkler system on rainy days, automatically decreasing the watering schedule on cold or humid days, and increasing it on hot and dry days. Overall, it?s estimated to save 30 to 70 percent on your landscape water bills.
