Watch Water Waste Disappear With Smart Inground Irrigation

Eco-friendly is trending and it's time to get your inground irrigation systems up to date with the eco-train. At Nutri-Lawn Ottawa, we understand that water conservation is quickly becoming the only way to engage in effective and efficient irrigation. If you want to save money and reduce your environmental impact, it's time to start thinking about smart equipment for your inground irrigation system. Read on to find out the ins and outs of this equipment.

How you know it's time to switch
There are several hints and signs that will tell you that your current inground irrigation systems aren't quite up to scratch when it comes to water conservation. These include:

  • Run off or puddles from your inground irrigation systems
  • Broken or clogged sprinkler nozzles
    • A good way to tell if a sprinkler is clogged is if the stream from the nozzle is low pressure or coming in small drops
  • Sprinklers working during or just after a rainy day
  • Obstructions, like plants, covering the sprinkler nozzle
  • Non-overlapping sprinkler sprays
  • Sprinkler sprays reaching driveways, the street, or other hardscape zones
  • Sprinkler nozzles spraying in the wrong direction
  • Sprinkler nozzles installed on an angle

If you have one or more of these signs, then it's time to reconsider the effectiveness of your inground irrigation systems.

Conservative, efficient spray nozzles
The first thing you can do to fix your irrigation woes is to install a smart spray nozzle. These nozzles have an arc and spray beam that Nutri-Lawn Ottawa adjusts specifically to your lawn's needs, ensuring the spray only goes where the lawn requires watering. Toro carries Precision Nozzles that are engineered to irrigate at a rate of 1 inch of water per hour, over an extended period of time. This slow release irrigation technique will ensure your lawn has time to absorb the water, effectively reducing run off and water waste.

Toro's Precision Nozzles save you money from more than just water conservation. With fewer valves and minimal controller stations, you won't have to worry about a hefty installation and maintenance expense. Nutri-Lawn Ottawa irrigation specialists can help you keep these conserving systems in great repair without breaking the bank account.

Let the sensors schedule for you
There's nothing worse than playing a guessing game with your inground irrigation systems, so why not scrap it? Nutri-Lawn Ottawa inground irrigation systems are equipped with Toro soil moisture sensing controllers so that your lawn only gets water when it needs the dose. These inground sensing controllers are installed with a healthy water level in mind – your lawn's water level happy place. If your soil moisture is above this level, your inground irrigation system won't run properly. If it's below the level, they'll kick into action to make sure your plants get the moisture required.

These sensor systems are what will end run off and puddles surrounding your yard, prevent sprinklers running in the rain, and ensure your lawn is never under or over watered.
