How Much and How Often to Water? Part 2 - Onsite
Saturday, June 17
Once we understand how long to water, the last variable factor for water conservation is how often to water. During this session we cover where to find data to help you know when to water. Irrigation components like pop up spray heads, rotors, drip irrigation, valves and filters all impact your systems efficiency. We will review the components and learn what they do and how they impact water conservation. Finally, irrigation technicians will be on location to help you learn how to properly maintain and adjust your system. This will be hands on, so be ready to get wet.
