Most Charlotte homes have higher water pressure than is needed to properly run your appliances. Having a properly adjusted flow of water to your house is very important, especially when it comes to your irrigation system. If you didn't use a trusted Charlotte irrigation company to install your system, chances are you're wasting water and money each time your sprinklers kick on.
"High water pressure is a common problem homeowners face if they self-installed their irrigation system or if they had it installed poorly," says John Minor, owner of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "Having mist come from the top of your sprinkler is a clear indicator of high water pressure. While small mists may not seem important, the money you are wasting can really add up."
Pressure Regulating Systems
A common solution to this high pressure problem is to use a Pressure Regulating System (PRS) irrigation head to control the amount of water that is distributed through your sprinklers. These irrigation heads can save approximately one gallon of water per-minute per-rotor or spray! This simple installation can save the average homeowner thousands of gallons of water each season.
In addition to saving you money, Pressure Regulating System (PRS) irrigation heads offer several other benefits, including:
- Extending the life of your system my minimizing the wear and tear caused by excessive pressure.
- Improving distribution uniformity.
- Eliminating head to head pressure variation.
- Conserving water for the environment while reducing energy and waste.
"Given the recent increases in droughts and high water prices, cutting back on water usage is an easy way to save money,," says Minor. "Using a Pressure Regulating System irrigation heads is a smart way to reduce the strain on your wallet and maintain a healthy lawn."
