2008: Application / Draper Utah 84020 USA
This area is near the Rocky Mountains and the summer is always very dry and hot. The lawn sprinkler must be in operation day and night to keep the grass green. In February 2008, 100 watersavers were placed on an area of 400 m² (100*4 m²). The first tests were performed without water. Under these conditions, the next day the lawn is dry and yellow. But with the Watersaver, it was green for over a week without water! Irrigation was then resumed and reduced from 100% (24 hours per day) in 10% increments. Under these dry conditions and hot temperatures, it was possible to reduce irrigation by 60% to keep the grass green and in good conditions.
In 2009, the tests were conducted in the summer with 40% irrigation throughout the dry season and the grass remained green all summer.
Situation 2011/ Part 1
Here is the part of the lawn where I use the sprinkler every day in the summer.
Situation 2011/ Part 2
For this part I use the Watersaver and you can also see the difference in the color. The grass has a darker green. In the 3rd year, water savings increased from 60% to 97%! It's unbelievable, but it's true.
