Central Irrigation Controller Pilot Project - June 2016

A central irrigation controller is a smart irrigation controller which is controlled by weather data and modified by you Irrigation Professional remotely.  This is done all by remote connection so even when you’re away during the summer, your Irrigation Professional can manage the system to ensure that water is not being wasted and applied properly to each zone of your property. There are currently 2 participating homes that have volunteered to be a part of this pilot project. If you are interested in being a part of this pilot project, live in Carlisle, you’re on the municipal water system and have an automatic sprinkler system, please contact Chris Wilson at 905-546-2424 ext.2901.
