Recent Rains Highlight the Value of Rainswitches

Recent Rains Highlight the Value of Rainswitches

Rainswitches prevent unnecessary irrigation after significant rain events like tropical storms.

Rainswitches save consumers money and conserve water by keeping sprinkler systems from running when an area has received sufficient rainfall. When installed properly and working properly, these devices, now mandated for new sprinkler systems, will keep sprinkler systems from turning on if the determined threshold of rainfall has been reached. Companies that install sprinklers west palm beach like Bob Irsay Irrigation Design, Inc., can retrofit existing sprinkler systems with these relatively inexpensive devices and help customers save money on their water bills.

Many people with sprinkler systems that lack rainswitches have unnecessarily irrigated their lawns during the recent wet weather. The tropical system formerly called Tropical Depression 8, which has now become Tropical Storm Hermine, has brought substantial amounts of rainfall to the area in the last week. However, people whose sprinkler systems lack rain shutoff devices have watered their lawns without need.

Licensed irrigation companies like Bob Irsay Irrigation Design, Inc. can help homeowners across the Palm Beaches save money and become more environmentally-friendly through the installation of rainswitches. Companies that offer irrigation lake worth services can help customers conserve water, lower their water bills and water their lawns only when necessary with devices such as rainswitches and “smart” clocks.

Sprinkler companies can set rainswitches and similar devices to prevent unnecessary watering. For example, companies can set devices like the Hunter Mini-Clik rainswitch or Rain Bird wireless rainswitch to keep a sprinkler system from running if the rainswitch receives a ½” of rain. Thus, if a property receives only a trace amount of rainfall, or anything less than this threshold, the rainswitch will still allow the sprinkler system to run.

These threshold devices prevent customers’ sprinkler systems from running if the device registers a certain amount of precipitation, such as half an inch of rain. To work properly, these devices should be installed in areas where they have a clear path to the sky.

Other “smart irrigation” products include specialized sprinkler heads, rotary nozzles, in-ground moisture sensors and “smart” controllers. Consumers can opt for heads with “seal” features and pressure regulators. These heads automatically prevent water from gushing out if the heads get broken. Rotary nozzles provide more efficient watering than standard nozzles, delivering water at higher precipitation rates. In-ground moisture sensors communicate with sprinkler controllers to keep given sprinkler zones from running if these zones have enough moisture. Smart controllers adjust irrigation watering automatically to water only as much as needed, taking into account various weather conditions.
