The Weather Reach Water Management System will automatically water your landscape for you.
Your landscapes need for water is determined by the amount of evaporation that occurs.
The weather drives how quickly moisture will evaporate from your soil. Your sprinklers
should be set to apply enough water to replace the water lost from evaporation.
Sprinklers apply water at different rates. Application rates need to be determined
to set the amount of time needed to apply enough water to refill the plant root zone.
Watering schedules take into account the sprinkler systems capacity to apply water and the
amount of water needed by the plants. The Irrisoft InSite Irrigation Scheduling program
can be used to build a watering schedule.
The duration of watering in each station is site specific. It is determined by the soil type
at the site, the type of vegetation at the site, and the type of sprinkler system being used.
More information can be accessed from Irrisoft's Landscape Water Management Manual.
Weather Reach Receivers that are connected directly into your sprinkler controller determine when watering is needed.
By watering at night or early morning you avoid the heat of the day. Sunshine, wind
and higher temperatures may cause some of the water coming from the sprinklers
to evaporate before soaking into to roots.
InSite Irrigation Scheduling software by Irrisoft will enable you to create sprinkler schedules
according to your specific landscape. This software provides you with many watering tips,
even a Landscape Water Management guide. You will not need a Weather Reach Receiver to implement
the watering schedule. Download your free copy of InSite.
