Irrigation Scheduling Made Easy with Sprinkler Times!
Sprinkler Times is an easy to use online program and app that generates customized monthly irrigation schedules for your landscape. The City of Napa has teamed up with Sprinkler Times to offer our water customers a FREE 1-Year Registration. With most lawns and gardens overwatered, proper programming and more frequent adjustment of standard irrigation controllers could help save 30% on outdoor water use and trim those water bills! Both home gardeners and commercial landscape managers will benefit from Sprinkler Times, allowing standard controllers to mimic the benefits of the more expensive "Smart" controllers. To get started on saving water:
- Visit www.sprinklertimes.com to see How It Works
- Scroll to the bottom of the Home Page and click on the "If you have a promo code" line
- Enter promotional code NapaH2O (the letter "O", not zero) and click "Submit"
- Fill in the required registration information (name, email, password, etc.)
Your Free purchase is then complete. Follow the Sprinkler Times 3-step process:
Step 1: Enter your site's zip code and select the plant type, sprinkler type, soil type, and sun exposure for each of your stations (zones).
Step 2: Sprinkler Times generates a monthly watering schedule specifically customized for your landscape, including watering days, start times per day, soak time between starts, and run times for each station.
Step 3: Print your schedule, or access it in the field on your smartphone or iPad!
You will now be able to take control of your controller, scheduling and adjusting it properly to match the changing seasons. Sprinkler Times will send an email on the first of each month reminding you to change your schedule. These monthly changes will help you achieve the biggest water bill savings, avoiding the "set it and forget it" phenomenon that leads to overwatering in late summer and fall.
With the City's Free Water-Wise Home Survey and Business Survey programs, our Water Conservation Representative can even help you get started with your free Sprinkler Times registration and programming the initial monthly watering schedule into your controller.
