Q & A

Some landscape irrigation controllers (also called timers) have a “water budget adjustment” feature.  A button or a dial on the controller can increase or decrease the amount of watering time for each station (or valve) by making only one adjustment. You can save a considerable amount of water by using the Watering Index to adjust your controller when the weather changes. Reducing your water use will reduce your water bill and help save a very precious and limited resource.
