Save up to 25,000 gallons of water!

There are many ways to save water – turn off the water when you brush your teeth, take shorter showers, install a water-saving toilet, to name a few. However, properly maintaining your sprinkler system and adjusting your sprinkler timer can save you over 25,000 gallons per year – more than all other water conservation efforts combined.

What it does

Using the Orbit Watering Schedule Calculator in combination with the Orbit Catch Cups will help you to optimize your system by identifying problem areas or areas that have a low distribution uniformity, and provide a run time outline that is optimal for your yard based on where you live, the type of soil you have and the way the sprinklers are installed.

How it works

Place the Orbit Catch Cups in your yard and run your sprinklers for a set amount of time. The Orbit Watering Schedule application will ask you for your soil type, zip code, how long you ran your test and the amount of water collected in each cup. Simply fill in the data and you will receive a custom watering schedule that will save water and money.
