Irrigation

Efficient irrigation saves water. The following rebates help you be more efficient with your outdoor water usage and reduce water waste.

Irrigation Efficiency Rebates

When designing irrigation systems group plants by their water needs.

Plants such as vegetable gardens, fruit trees or turf will need water more often in the summer. These should be grouped separately than our lower water users like our desert natives.

Most plants should be watered with drip irrigation equipment. These systems apply water only where plant roots can access it, and only as often and deeply as plants require.

If you are watering a lawn, choose high efficiency sprinkler nozzles as listed below.

High Efficiency Sprinkler Nozzles

We’d like to encourage you to change your existing spray heads to High Efficiency sprinkler nozzles. These nozzles minimize water waste, they feature unique, multi-trajectory rotating streams that deliver water at a steady rate. This slower application rate allows water to gently soak in at rates that soils can absorb. Use these nozzles to replace the sprinkler head on any conventional spray head body or pop up sprinkler for water savings of up to 30%.

High efficiency sprinkler nozzles are a great solution for upgrading an old and poorly performing sprinkler system. In most cases, you just remove the old, water wasting spray nozzle and replace it with the new head. You don’t even have to take the main sprinkler body out of the ground.

 

Get $2.00 off each nozzle you purchase and install.

Multi-Setting Sprinkler Controller

Sprinkler Controllers or Water Timers are used to set the sprinkler system to specific watering times.

 

Customers may receive 25% toward the total purchase price with no limitation.

Rain Sensor

A rain sensor is a device that senses rainfall. It is connected to an automatic irrigation system that causes the system to shut down in the event of a rainfall thereby helping the homeowner conserve water. Rain sensors automatically shuts off the sprinkler system when it rains.

Customers may receive a $25 rebate per account.
