Like vehicles, irrigation systems need routine maintenance to efficiently operate. Upgrading to a wi-fi controller that monitors and applies water as-needed can also help realize cost savings.
“An irrigation system will require repairs over time, such as valve, head and backflow device replacements,” said Patrick Vogt, Owner. “Midwest freeze and thaw cycles can also affect systems. For example, the unusual, prolonged stretch of sub-zero temperatures we had this last winter also affected pipes and connections, despite properly winterizing systems.”
Can a sprinkler system controller help to save water? YES! By The Blade exclusively installs Hunter Hydrawise™ irrigation system controllers. Why? Because they are the best, most cost-efficient controllers on the market today.
A healthy, beautiful lawn and garden needs just the right amount of water to thrive. Hydrawise automatically adjusts watering based on highly accurate, internet-sourced local weather data. The system looks at the forecast and past history to ensure that just the right amount of irrigation is applied. This Predictive Watering™ process can provide significant water savings for By The Blade customers.
“What we also love about Hydrawise is the convenience of remote access,” said Vogt. “It’s easy to monitor and manage your irrigation controller from anywhere in the world by using your phone, tablet or computer.” The reporting feature shows how much water is used, and how much is saved.
