Managing your water footprint

At Smart Watering Systems (SWS) we are to use Irrigation best management practices that address our clients’ local landscape needs while minimizing water use. Using the data collected in the initial we evaluate the performance of our clients’ irrigation system and compare actual water use to a target irrigation budget based on landscape size and plant material.

  • Detect and minimize damage from leaks and missing heads before waste and damage occurs
  • Protect your landscape investment, reduce hardscape damage and avoid slip/fall liability while reducing operating costs and extending equipment life

Rainwater Harvesting | Smart Watering Systems

In addition to the obvious benefit of saving potable water for drinking and bathing, harvesting rainwater and stormwater can reduce the possibility of damage from flooding and erosion at building sites, offering dual benefits to property owners and developers.


Water Use Audits | Smart Watering Systems

We conduct several inspections to get an overall picture of the system’s condition, including management practices, equipment, water pressure and any deficiencies. In one irrigation audit the client was shocked to discover they had a continuous main line leak which contributed to a waste of 66,500 gal/year. The first step for any client would be an irrigation audit to find out the total water used per irrigation zone.
