Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions about automated sprinkler systems
Q. Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I am currently using?
No – an automatic sprinkler system will save you water. A well designed, efficient lawn sprinkler system applies exactly the amount of water needed by your landscape. You will not have to worry about wasting water if you forget to turn off a hose. Also, with a rain shut off sensor your system will know when it is raining and simply turn itself off when water is not needed.
Q. Does having a sprinkler system really save me time?
Yes – you won’t have to spend another minute of your leisure time watering the lawn or garden. Your new system will do all the watering for you – even when you are away from home!
Q. What are the components of an automatic sprinkler system?
A typical system is comprised of a controller (which functions as the backbone of the system), valves (which open and close to release and stop the flow of water to underground pipes) and sprinklers (which distribute water to specific areas). The sprinkler system can be customized further with rain shut off devices, soil moisture sensors and drip irrigation zones.
