3 Tips for Conserving Water with Your Sprinkler System, Lincoln, Nebraska

Your sprinkler system plays a vital role in maintaining your home’s stunning garden and landscape. However, if you’re not careful, it can drain your water supply and cause your utility bills to skyrocket. The team at Whittemore Sprinkler Company in Lincoln, NE, are here to share a few of the helpful ways you can conserve water with your sprinkler system.

How to Conserve Water with a Sprinkler System

1. Install a Sensor

Fortunately, there is a special rainfall sensor you can install to detect when it’s raining and will shut down the sprinkler system during these conditions. A soil moisture sensor is another device that prevents unnecessary irrigation by detecting how much moisture is in the soil.

2. Adjust the Timer Settings

Did you know that your lawn does not need as much water in the spring as it does in the summer? Therefore, it’s important to adjust the timer settings on your sprinkler system so that it correlates with the weather patterns. Not only will this conserve water and save you money, but it’s also healthier for your landscape.

3. Use a Water Saving Sprinkler Head

Many homeowners don’t realize they are wasting water with inefficient sprinkler heads. To conserve water, it's wise to upgrade to a low volume head and nozzle. This helps reduce runoff and ensures the water is slowly absorbed by the land. It can also prevent misting, a water wasting issue that occurs when water gets shot into the air and evaporates before it can reach the grass. 

Making a few adjustments with the above tips can go a long way in helping you save money on your water bills.
