One of the greatest accessories for anyone who enjoys landscaping, but doesn’t have a lot of time to stand outside and water a lawn by hand, are irrigation controllers. These are controllers that are designed to automate your irrigation system and allow you to designate when to water your landscape.
Using irrigation controllers for the first time can be somewhat intimidating. Here are a few tips to help you take control of your controller:
1. Have Confidence: First and foremost, have some assurance in your abilities. If you found this tip online and are reading this than you are more than capable of setting and enabling irrigation controllers.
2. Find information: A user manual is your best friend and your key to success. If this is a new system make sure to keep the manual handy for a while as you get familiar with it. If this is an older system and you do not have access to a manual there are plenty of resources available online. There are websites that host these manuals for download, or you may be able to find one from the manufacturer’s website.
3. Ask questions: When in doubt ask. There are plenty of experts and knowledgeable people who are familiar with irrigation controllers and many of them are more than willing to answer questions for you.
