The Benefits of Having a Sprinkler Irrigation System
If you are used to watering your plants and lawn by hand, you could benefit from having a sprinkler irrigation system. Sprinkler irrigation systems offer many benefits to homeowners. Keep reading to learn the top benefits of having a sprinkler irrigation system.
First, a sprinkler irrigation system will pay for itself with water saved. When watering by hand, you use more water than a sprinkler system. In fact, about 50% of water is lost to runoff when watering by hand. The water you save will make up for the cost of the system.
Second, you can have a separate water meter. Many towns allow homeowners who have town water to install a separate water meter. This means you can avoid paying for the water your sprinkler uses.
Third, you can set schedules. Sprinkler systems are usually set to go off in the early morning but you can also set it to go off every other day for example. If you are receiving a lot of rainwater, you can even turn your sprinkler system off for a few days.
