Save water outdoors by watering more efficiently

Water conservation is a way of life in Santa Clara County. The average Santa Clara County home with a 1,000 square foot lawn can save 350 gallons a week by limiting outdoor watering to twice a week and avoiding midday watering. That’s a great way to save about half the water on your bill.

About half the water in a typical home is used outdoors, and nearly 50% of outdoor water is wasted because of inefficient or broken irrigation systems. We are here to help you reduce outdoor water waste with a FREE in-person visit to check your irrigation system. Our trained professionals come to your home and identify problems with your sprinklers, such as over-spraying and over-watering while also making irrigation scheduling recommendations. They can help you identify equipment upgrades for up to $3,000 in irrigation equipment rebates so you can water more efficiently. Book your survey here.
