Smart Irrigation …will you do your part?

July 2017 is Smart Irrigation Month

Each year at this time we promote Smart Irrigation and encourage you to join us in promoting and educating your customers to the benefits to saving money and water through SMART IRRIGATION.  The National Irrigation Association started Smart Irrigation Month in 2005 and we continue to see it gain traction as drought and water shortages become headlines at a national level.

Invest in your industry

You can position your company as a leader in your industry if you become known as “THE LEADER” in smart water saving practices with your designs and installations.

  • Are you promoting SMART technology with your sales presentations?
  • Do you educate your customers about efficient water use and how they can achieve those savings through their irrigation installation?
  • Have you stayed current with the latest advancements in water-saving technologies, products and designs?

Ways to promote Smart Irrigation

We want to offer you several ideas that we call “no brainers” or simple ways to incorporate Smart Irrigation into your sales and marketing with your existing and new customers.  With each homeowner that takes the steps to save water your total impact on water consumption has a major impact on water conservation.
