Home Owners’ Associations may be wasting a lot of money on their water bill. Why? Because they are set up to be the perfect water wasting machine. Everyone in the Association pays into the the fund that pays the water bill.
The one that pays the water bill has nothing to compare to, so the bill gets paid as a “normal” expense. So the sprinkler system runs during the rain, (very bad for PR, but not that big an impact on the bill), waters the same amount whether it needs it or not, and has been shown to be watering up to 100% too much.
The HOA scenario is exactly the same as just about every sprinkler system around with one huge difference. Some Home Owners’ Associations are paying tens of thousands of dollars in water bills.
A Rainstat Controller could be saving that Association from 20% to 50% of that expense. We’re talking about some real money here that could be spent on other areas or used to reduce fees or offset future increases . . .
We are in the process of preparing proposals for some Waco HOAs with very aggressive pricing. We want to make a point that the old, dumb controllers need to go away. They require you to make decisions you aren’t equipped to make.
Dumb controllers require you to convert your “inches of rain” thoughts into “days and minutes” actions. You have all the weather information you need–probably on your cell phone. But how on earth do you translate that into the language your dumb controller speaks?
If you do get it figured out, it goes out of date the next time the weather changes.
A Rainstat Smart Controller replaces just the water your plants use and reprograms itself every day! So it becomes impossible to waste water through over-watering or runoff.
