A suggestion: If you live in an area where heavy rain is forecast turn off your sprinklers. 


  1. Thanks for the sprinkler shut-off reminder.

    Most irrigation companies have sensors now that will shut off the system during rain. I purchased one, but did not worry about installing it with the way the summer has been.

    They are fairly easy to install on the timers, and some are even wireless. Usually you can set the amount of rain required to shut the system down.

  2. MikeB: You can't believe the number of sprinklers running while I was driving to work in the rain.

    Hate to see water wasted.
