March 22, 2021
Like people say, “Save water, and it will save you.” The theme of World Water Day this year is “valuing water” – what water means to us, and how we can better conserve this vital resource.
Aeon Matrix aims to use technology to improve your quality of life, and saving water has been one of our main concerns as well. As an EPA WaterSense-certified sprinkler controller, Yardian is here to provide you with the most savings.
Check out these 7 tips and start saving more water today with Yardian!
1. No watering on rainy days
Rainy days are your best water-saving days. Using a rain sensor with a Yardian can prevent watering on wet days. You can also utilize the “skip rules” to skip a day with a high chance of rain when you don’t have a rain sensor.
2. Water when the lawn needs it
Most lawns need less water than you think. With the WaterSense-certified algorithm, Yardian knows the right watering schedule based on your local weather data and zone settings. “Smart watering adjustment” can help you change the level of “irrigation adequacy” for each zone to fit your watering needs.
3. Water in the early morning
Watering in the early morning is better than dusk since it helps prevent the growth of fungus and reduces water loss to evaporation. Use the “smart program hours” setting to specify allowable watering hours on any day when using a Smart Program.
4. Plant drought-resistant lawns
5. Prevent water run-off
6. Check for leaks in pipes
Check for any leaks in and outside the house regularly. Leaks can cause you to waste precious water resources when you are not paying attention. With Yardian’s flow sensor support, anomalies will be flagged so you can fix the issue right away.
