Slow the Flow: Smart Controller and Rain Sensor Installations

Through a partnership with some local municipalities, qualifying residents can get a smart controller or rain sensor at little to no cost!  Check below to see if your water provider is participating, and start watering smarter today.

Arm with App

Upgrade to a smart controller and maintain your lawn from anywhere. Smart controllers connect to WiFi to gather weather data and adjust your watering schedule accordingly. Take the guesswork out of watering your yard!

Rain Sensor

Looking for a quick and easy way to reduce your outdoor water use? Get a rain sensor! A rain sensor detects when it is raining (or has recently rained) and will send a signal to your sprinkler control clock to not water. Once the sensor dries out, your sprinkler system will resume it’s usual watering schedule.
