There’s an old tale about a giant with a leaky faucet. In his home, the tale goes, the giant’s faucet has a terrible leak. Night after night, the leak drips and drips. And since it’s only one drop at a time, the giant thinks nothing of it. “Why, that’s just one drop,” the giant says, “and there are many rivers, lakes and oceans.”
Soon, however, that one drop becomes many, and the giant’s home begins to fill with water. In a few short weeks, the water rises so high that the giant begins to fear that he might drown. So, in a panic, he opens his huge front door and out gushes all the water. Only then, drenched from head to toe, and hearing his leaky faucet dripping, does the giant finally realize what he’s lost.
Don’t be the giant. Wasting water is never a good choice. He could have simply fixed the leak or captured some of that buildup. Anything would have been better than ignoring the problem. But the fact is, even though water is all around us, like the giant, we often fail to see a problem until it’s too late.
Conserving water is, and will continue to be, a commitment and a necessity. But that doesn’t have to mean hard labor or great expense. Most times, water conservation comes down to a simple choice: save it or waste it.
With July being Smart Irrigation Month, and the hottest time of the year, what better time to start letting your clients know the benefits of water conservation? In recent years, drought and rising water prices have left property owners seeking options. And with the number of available technologies, methods and systems, they have choices.
The market is ripe for anything that can conserve this liquid gold—even if that means one drop at a time.

Before you begin, it’s wise to determine how much water is actually being used on a property. To do this efficiently, it’s suggested that you do a water audit.
“Performing an irrigation audit allows you to take note of where the water is going,” says Warren Gorowitz, vice president of sustainability at Ewing Irrigation in Phoenix, Arizona. “Once that’s clear, you can decide which adjustments are necessary, and determine the smartest, most sustainable ways to irrigate the property.”
Once you’ve done the audit, and you can cite how much water can be saved, and how water bills can be reduced, a retrofit should be no problem.
“If you’re able to tell your customers how much they’ll save on a monthly basis, whether that’s in gallons or dollars, they start to realize that their new system will pay for itself in only a couple of years. The reason’s simple, too: you’re watering less and skipping the huge irrigation bills.”
Because they’re naturally adapted to the climate and region, native plants and wildflowers settle into the soil with relative ease. Other than spot spraying and some initial soil treatment, chemicals and fertilizers also become less necessary.
One of the simpler options, high-efficiency, low-precipitation nozzles, allow you to replace existing nozzles with highly sustainable alternatives. 29.13412 -80.99630
“They’re relatively easy to replace and don’t involve a lot of digging or labor to set up,” says Gorowitz. “And right away, they can generally save a site 20 to 30 percent, if not more, of the water they’re using. They also cut way down on runoff.”

High efficiency nozzles makes the retrofit of your irrigation system seamless. It’s not a complicated change; it’s just an adjustment. After the nozzles have been in the ground for a while, and especially once the water savings are recognized, your will likely be more receptive to other, more complex technologies, such as smart controllers.
Like the bridge of a ship, a smart controller behaves as an irrigation system’s command hub. Smart controllers gather site-specific environmental information, such as weather, soil moisture, evaporation and plant transpiration rates, in order to ‘decide’ when to water.
And all of these options, mind you, can be hooked right up to a new or existing irrigation system.
Drip irrigation is also a top choice for conserving water. These systems are designed to deliver water slowly, in precise amounts, directly to the root zones of plants. If you’re in a region with water restrictions, drip technology provides a cost-effective solution. Since they emit such low volumes of water, drip systems are often exempt from regulations.
