Minimizing water usage with Ranchio

I wanted to introduce you to Rachio. First of all, Rachio is a smart water sprinkler company. They are making products that therefore improve outdoor water efficiency.

The EPA reported that 50 percent of the water we use outdoors is lost to inefficient irrigation systems. Also and if one sprinkler isn’t properly maintained can waste up to 25,000 gallons annually. We’re using the earth’s resources at an unsustainable pace and our lawn irrigation is a critical area at fault. As a result, though there is no overnight fix.

In 2014 cities got religion and started taking water issues serious. So from more than 1,000 cities in all 50 states pledged to:

  • Reduce their annual consumption of freshwater by nearly a billion gallons;
  • Reduce waste sent to landfills by 18.3 million pounds;
  • Prevent more than 69.9 million pounds of hazardous waste from entering our watersheds; and
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2.7 million pounds.

So the Colorado-based company has already most noteworthy saved 22 billion gallons of water!!

The Rachio Smart Controller enables you therefore to control your outdoor sprinkler system. All from the palm of your hand. It’s using a WiFi-enabled iOS or Android device. The Gen 3 system and flow meter marries advanced Weather Intelligence and precise flow monitoring to keep water use under control.

Finally, Earth Day is two weeks away and summer around the corner (hopefully). In conclusion, homeowners need a seamless way to save money. So conserve water and keep track of their total H2O use.
