Water is Awesome - 8/2/2016

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 3:32 PM by Hunter Harris

Our New Weekly Watering Advice
We give you this advice every week for two reasons: One, your lawn actually thrives more with a few deep, infrequent waterings, and two, by using less water, you'll save more on your water bill! So in order to make watering your lawn as easy as possible, our new weekly watering advice will now show you how many minutes you should run each type of sprinkler head per cycle, and how many cycles you should run per zone as well.
Example: If you have spray heads, you should water each zone 4 times for approximately 6 minutes each time. Repeat this on your second watering day this week as well.
For more information on proper lawn watering techniques and other landscaping tips, check out Water Is Awesome.    
Second W.I.S.E. Guys Evaluations Now Available!
We are excited to officially announce that we have opened up our W.I.S.E. Guys program to allow multiple evaluations per home! A second evaluation can now be performed after three years have passed since the first evaluation, and you are also still eligible to receive a $200 rebate for any repairs done.

Average Daily Water Use
For the month of July, the average Southlake citizen used 462 gallons of water per day. Our goal is to get this number (GPCD) down to an average of 311 gallons per day by the year 2025. To find out how you can decrease this number in your own household, click here.
