While over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, 97% of that water is undrinkable salt water. With the remaining 3% of fresh water, only 1% is usable because the rest is frozen in glaciers. So, what does all of this mean?
It means that water is both a finite and valuable resource that is sadly often wasted.
With almost a decade of experience in irrigation. Conserva irrigation began when two men, Tom Olsen and Russ Jundt, were increasingly frustrated the tremendous amount of water wasted by traditional irrigation systems. Conserva Irrigation is dedicated to helping produce irrigation systems that would aim to be environmentally responsible by being the leader in water conservation.
Many of us believe we are making a strong effort when we install items in our homes like low-flow toilets and water-efficient dishwashers to conserve water. This helps, but the truth is that indoor water use is only a fraction compared to outdoor water usage if you have a traditional irrigation system. In reality, up to 59% of your household’s water use is for irrigation.
It helps to think of it this way: Most homes use an average of 100 gallons of water per day inside of our homes. However, a 7-zone irrigation system can use approximately 2500 gallons of water each time the system runs. This is true only if everything is operating perfectly with no broken sprinkler heads.
Some people may come to the conclusion that it would be better to not use any irrigation system at all. This is not true. You could go to a big box store and buy some sprinklers to use on hot days. While it is true that you would be technically watering your lawn, you are also running huge risks of having many other problems. You could be using far more water than a well-tuned Conserva Irrigation system and end up over watering your lawn. Even worse, the water could evaporate from the hot sun before your plants ever had the chance to receive that water.
It is important for the environment to keep your lawn lush and your vegetation alive. There are many benefits to a healthy lawn and landscaping. For example, a healthy green lawn can help lower the Earth’s surface temperature by 14 degrees on those hot, sweltering summer days. Also, healthy grass is amazing at reducing greenhouse gases and producing oxygen. A healthy lawn also provides vital habitats for several small creatures, birds and insects. The benefits to a healthy, properly watered lawn are immeasurable.
