Did you know you can still have great looking lawn with with Perths normal water restrictions.
By ensuring the your irrigation system is functioning correctly, and it has the correct coverage you can deliver the required amount of water to your lawn well within the water restrictions.
We and Evergreen Blades have multiple customers whom we monitor and look after there irrigation system via remote connectivity using Hunter Hydrawise® weather based irrigation system.
The Hydrawise Weather based irrigation system using both local and BOM weather data to calculate the amount of water is required. Omg a wet and windy day it can turn the reduce the amount of water being applied or turns the system off. On a extremely hot day it can increase the amount of water being applied to ensure the lawn gets what it needs.
Gathering data from both local and BOM weather stations ensures that the data it received and uses to make these calculations is as accurate as possible other than attaching your own weather station (Which can be done ), the local weather station data it uses is called a Virtual station, this is upto 5 local stations and the data is combined and then an average from the 5 stations is used to work out the requirements.
The Hydra wise system is so versitile we can install multiple other sensors to monitor its effeciency. Such as a water meter to measure the amount of water being applied from the water source. This allows us to receive alerts when you have problems such as a leak or broken sprinkler or even a blockage, A soil monitoring sensors to confirm how much moisture is getting into the soil and use that as another tool. Another common sensor is the “ET” Evapotranspiration to calculate how much evaporation is happening at your location.
We have actually had the hydra wise system installed for over 3 years and has saved us hundreds in water costs. Being next to a laneway we often get vandals kick our sprinklers and break them, this system alerts us when this happens and allows us to stop the system and correct the problem as we done always see the broken sprinklers.
Feel Free to contact us to have a look at your system and quote on an upgrade or improvement.
