Millions of irrigation systems in use across the county are designed to keep the grass green and plants alive—not to conserve water. As water conservation concerns rise, Horizon Distributors’ BizPro eSources provides landscape and irrigation professionals with downloadable resources about smart water sprays and nozzles.
Smart water sprays and nozzles conserve water by managing the flow of water through an irrigation system and applying it more efficiently than traditional sprays and nozzles and, across the entire landscaped area. They are an excellent upgrade to a new system or a great retrofit to an existing one.
“Smart water controllers do a good job of factoring in elements like rain, wind and temperature. But, they can’t make up for an inefficient irrigation system design or a poor layout,” said Dan Puthuff, irrigation product category manager, Horizon Distributors. “Smart water sprays and nozzles take water conservation to the next level.”
Smart water sprays have built-in pressure regulators that reduce the outgoing water pressure to either 30 or 40 psi, depending on the manufacturer and application. Optimizing outgoing water pressure greatly decreases misting and fogging, which keeps the water where it needs to be—on the turf and plants. Smart water nozzles save water through more even and uniform distribution. They also work within a larger pressure range than normal nozzles. Used separately or in combination, smart water sprays and nozzles can save thousands of gallons of water each year.
“These smart water products have an immediate impact on customers’ water bills. And, they often pay for themselves very quickly,” explains Puthuff. “Our hope is that landscape and irrigation professionals can take the resources we provide and use them to sell smart water sprays and nozzles to their customers.”
