Rain sensors are now required on all new installations of irrigation systems. Water conservation is getting to be more and more important these days.
There is no reason to feel guilty for running your Allscape Sprinkler System because it has weathermatic smart clock technology.
Weathermatic smart clocks have weather stations that go to the internet and find the weather conditions for your zip code, then change the watering run times to put out just the amount of water that your landscape needs and then takes that information to set its watering schedule daily. This results in no over watering that causes run off, and no under watering causing lawn and plants to brown.
I installed this on my system and reduced gallons of water used by 36%.
