New Irrigation App! - July 24, 2013

The Portland Water Bureau (PWB) is excited to launch “Sprinkler Times,” a water and money saving irrigation application for smartphone users.

 

The new app is free and easy to use. From your smartphone, you can determine the best time to most efficiently turn on your automatic sprinkler system to keep your outdoor space like an oasis.

 

This cool and helpful tool will walk you through your individual landscape to calculate how much water each zone needs based on your zip code, type of plants, soil, and sun exposure. Don’t worry, if you are not a smartphone user, you can take advantage of this helpful tool by using the online program from your tablet or desktop computer.

 

For more information about the Sprinkle Times, visit their website at www.SprinklerTimes.com. Get free access to the irrigation app by visiting the Portland Water Bureau Website to get a promotional code.

 

Save water, save money, stay green!
