Three Tips For Saving Water With Your Irrigation System


Water conservation is essential to sustainable living and can be achieved through effective irrigation practices. However, many of us are unaware of the cost-effective and eco-friendly habits that can be adopted to minimize water wastage. To limit this issue, here are some helpful tricks to conserve water water when using irrigation systems.

An Audit For Your Irrigation System

If you want to ensure that your irrigation system is functioning optimally and is water-efficient, consider opting for an irrigation audit. The auditor will thoroughly inspect and test your irrigation system to assess its efficiency and water conservation potential. This way, you can ensure that your irrigation system functions while conserving water and saving costs.

Have Your Irrigation Controller Adjusted Regularly

For efficient water use and saving money, it’s vital to adjust your irrigation controller or timer periodically. As the weather changes throughout the year, adjusting your timer once a month can significantly help conserve water. This simple task costs nothing and takes only a few minutes each month. Most timers come with keys, making the process quick and effortless. For even more significant savings, adjusting your timer weekly is sometimes recommended. 

Use Your Irrigation System In The Mornings

To ensure a healthy landscape, running your irrigation system during the morning is recommended. This is particularly important if your irrigation system has sprinklers. During the morning, the temperature is cooler, which results in less water loss due to evaporation under the hot sun. Moreover, wind is not usually a significant issue during the morning hours in most areas. While utilizing your irrigation system during the evening may seem like a good idea, it can lead to plant disease problems due to the water sitting on plants all night, especially in humid climates. Therefore, avoiding using the irrigation system during the evening is advisable to prevent such issues and promote healthy plant growth.
