WaterSense, is a partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps protect our nation's water supply by suggesting simple ways to reduce water usage with water-efficient products and services.
With the irrigation season just around the corner, it is time to start your Spring-cleaning and check your irrigation system before you start watering. Sprinkler heads may have been damaged from winter weather and one broken or leaking sprinkler head can waste up to 25,000 gallons of water in just six months. Sprinkler Spruce-Up is a WaterSense program that recommends four simple steps of inspect, connect, direct, and select to make your irrigation system more efficient. It is also a good idea to check your sprinkler heads throughout the irrigation season as they can get damaged from lawn mowers as well. Watch the video below to learn more about the sprinkler spruce up program.
The WaterSense website also has great resources for ways to be more efficient by saving water, energy, and money. Look for the WaterSense label on water efficient products. This label can be found on weather-based irrigation controllers and more! Click here, to learn about the WaterSense label.
