Water conservation and Sustainability are high priority’s when selecting the right water timer. User friendly and flexibility programs are essential. The ultimate water controller should allow you 4 Programs, 1-24 Stations, 3-4 Start times, 7 day Run Cycle and 0-5 Hours of water time.
This will allow you the separation of watering Trees, Shrubs, Garden, Lawn, on their own cycle and their own required amount of water.
Water timers should also have their own battery backup unit used in times of loss of power.
There are indoor and outdoor selected water controllers that are sold at your local Landscape supplier store. A highly recommended timer used by professionals is the Irritrol Raindial Unit.A good Irrigation Water Controller along with a good water source leads to great success with your Landscape needs.
