Top 5 Ways to Be More Water Wise
1. Adjust watering schedule with the season. Prior to Father's day, once every 5 days. During the summer, once every 3 days, then after Labor day, once every 5 days again.
2. Adjust watering schedule with the weather. Shut off sprinklers when it rains; just skipping one watering cycle saves thousands of gallons.
3. Do not water every day. This will encourage your lawn's roots to go deeper and you won't over water. Also, do not water more than once in the same day (don't water morning and night the same day.)
4. Adjust sprinklers to not water hardscape like sidewalk, patio, walkway, and driveway. Adjust run times (how long your sprinklers are on) shorter be a few minutes will save thousands of gallons.
5. Use drip system in flowerbeds and around bushes and shrubs. The water gets to the plants and not watering ground cover. This also deduces the amount of weeds, since you're not watering the entire area of the flowerbed.
FYI: The secondary water meters provide hourly data throughout the water season. If we determine that you may have a system leak (water never stops running), we'll do our best to notify you.
