If you are aging in place, this is one of the best inventions to ease the chore of making sure your yard gets the right amount of water. If you’re still relying on manual zone valve switching or traditional automatic timer systems, an upgrade to the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller will blow your mind. Reasons to upgrade:
- Control everything from your phone, from anywhere.
- Automatic schedule skips based on real-time weather updates save you water and money.
- Automated smart schedule will create a custom watering schedule for each zone in your system based on slope, soil type, and sun/shade conditions.
- Need to replace sprinkler heads/do maintenance to the system? No more walking back and forth to the manifold or old control system to turn on valves to test your work – save a lot of time by turning any zone on/off from where you stand in your yard using your phone.
