- Understand your system: Develop a schematic of all water entry points. Know where your faucets, time clocks, solenoids, booster pumps, sprinklers, bubblers, valves, pipes, etc. are located.
- Make a checklist of system elements and check each one regularly for leaks! Finding and repairing leaks can lead to big savings, especially in irrigation systems!
- Use turf only where actually necessary. Avoid turf except in picnic or active play areas.
