When it comes to a home's irrigation system, a little maintenance goes a long way. Homes with clock timer controlled irrigation systems use about 50 percent more water outdoors than homes without irrigation systems. Your system can waste even more if it’s programmed incorrectly, a sprinkler head is pointed in the wrong direction, or you have a leak. Before you ramp up your watering efforts, spruce up your irrigation system by remembering four simple steps: inspect, connect, direct, and select.
You can save even more water outdoors by incorporating water-smart landscaping principles into your landscape design. Looking for more ways to save? Check out other outdoor water-saving technologies.
