High Cost of Overwatering
Majority of water use is landscape
That's right. In some parts of the country, as much as 70% of a commercial property’s water is used for irrigating landscapes. A property owner with a 16-zone 1-acre property will spend an average of $6,000 on irrigation water per year.
The average property will over-water by 38%
Using conventional processes and systems, the average property is overwatered by 38%. So, of that $6000 water bill, you might be spending $2300 on water that your landscape does not need. This over-watering also leads to damaged plants and deteriorating pavement. Meanwhile, water rates are increasing at 10-25% annually, making over-watering increasingly costly.
