Your Solution to Lawn Sprinkler and Irrigation Problems

Very factual and informative presentation. The challenge is to get the message out to the 90% of industry folks that are not interested. How can we do this?Lorne Haveruk, CID, CWCM, CGIA, CLIAWater Resource ConsultantDH Water Management Services
Thats the rub. I saw a system yesterday that was so over pressurized it looked like a low flying cloud. The installer probably thought it was just fine.Unfortunately, in most counties in Florida any irrigation system that has a backflow preventer and a rain sensor is accepted by the building department.The dis-interested irrigation installers are not going to care until it hits their wallet.The reason that I only do repairs is that I cannot compete on irrigation installations unless I install systems as inefficient as my competitors, which I refuse to do.Although in general I am not a proponent of government regulation,in the case of water, I believe only mandatory water audits will change the current situation.
