Efficient Irrigation Rebates

  • WaterSense Smart Irrigation Controllers A WaterSense labeled controller automatically, or manually, reduces watering times or the number of days when the system goes on so that less water is delivered to the plants, during the cooler months or when it has rained recently. Some of these controllers are equipped with Smartphone-friendly irrigation technology to allow the user to set watering times remotely. Replacing a standard irrigation timer with a WaterSense labeled irrigation controller can save up to 30% in outdoor watering. Customers must choose from a list of pre-qualified controllers included in https://lookforwatersense.epa.gov/Product-Search-Results-IrrigationController.html

Rebate amount: 25% up to $100 Residential or $500 Commercial includes cost of professional installation.

  • Smart Flow Sensors Irrigation flow sensors measure the speed at which water is flowing through an irrigation system and sends that information to the Smart Irrigation Controller. This is helpful in detecting issues and conserving water. For example, if water is flowing at an unusually high rate (a line break or broken sprinkler), a flow sensor works in conjunction with the controller to take corrective action. Such action could include stopping the water flow or sending an alert message to your phone. Additionally, some flow sensors can quantify how much water is used in a landscape, making it easier to have a landscape water budget.

  • Smart Pressure regulators Pressure regulation devices increase the efficiency and performance of your sprinkler and drip system by reducing the water pressure to a set, optimal rate. This is important to improve water distribution uniformity and avoid underwatering or overwatering. The three most common pressure regulating devices are pressure reducing valves, flow control valves and pressure sustaining valves.

  • WaterSense Pressure Spray Sprinkler Bodies The sprinkler body is the exterior shell that connects to the irrigation system piping and houses the spray nozzle that applies water on the landscape. WaterSense labeled spray sprinkler bodies with internal pressure regulation can reduce water waste by maintaining pressure near its optimal operating pressure as a result the connected nozzle is better able to generate the right amount of water spray and coverage for more uniform distribution of water across the landscape. Customers must choose from a list of pre-qualified spray sprinkler bodies. https://lookforwatersense.epa.gov/Product-Search-Results-Sprinkler.html

Rebate amount: $4.00 per body (no limit per fiscal year)

  • Smart High efficiency rotating sprinkler nozzle (multi-stream) The nozzles apply the stream at a lower rate allowing the water and nutrients to penetrate the soil, which helps you maintain a healthy landscape. Efficient water delivery reduces soil erosion and runoff, saving water and money.

Rebate amount: $2 per head. (no limit per fiscal year)
