Are you living in the Stone Age?

Todays market is filled with all different kinds of smart (wifi) sprinkler controllers, so how do you know which one is right for you? Let start with the big box store, you will find cheap to not so cheap and small to large controller boxes. The first thing to ask yourself is how many zone do you have, each controller will be sized by 4, 6, 8, or 12 stations, you can get controllers that are compatible to more zones but you might not find them there. Next is how complex do you want the controller to be, always check out YouTube, there are so many people giving product reviews, that will be the quick and easy place to check out. What are your city and state codes, some cities requirer permits, rain sensors, or freeze sensor even when you are using smart controllers. You can also find the nearest irrigation supplier in your area like Site One, Ewing and many others that can lead you in the right direction. Lastly your best bet is to hire a professional licensed irrigator, this upgrade must be completed by the homeowner or licensed irrigator in the State of Texas. The first reason you should hire someone who is licensed is because they will be up to date with current codes and laws. The second reason is we will review your system and schedule your water times to a proper and efficient schedule. Lastly they are going to use professional grade supplies and should back those with a fair warranty. We would love to upgrade your systems controller to a new wifi controller that will help you save time and money. The controller we install is the Rainbird TM2 or for larger yards the Rainbird ESP-Me3, these controllers are top of the line and will leave you worry free.
