Seasonal adjustment settings

As the seasons change, so do the water needs of your lawn and garden. It is now time to adjust your irrigation controller for the current season to avoid overwatering. No matter what the season, your controller should always be turned off when it is raining.

If you need assistance re-programming your controller, please contact a Waterwise Garden Irrigator.
