Helping Save Water

Sustainable Sprinkler wants to be the driving force to take control of your irrigation usage, lower cost, and save water worldwide. We can all benefit from saving our water supply and not wasting it, financially as well as environmentally. Some estimates state that irrigation is responsible for 80% of potable water used, but that has to change. Sustainable Sprinkler wants to make a competitive impact and save clean water for the future. “At Sustainable Sprinkler, we have the opportunity to solve problems for today and the future. Staying true to our commitment, we’ve been able to make changes in the water consumption industry for the better,” said the Director of Engineering.

Sustainable Sprinkler is much more than simply a fad it is a serious technology that can change the way we waste water needlessly. Most irrigation water is immediately evaporated, and aquifers are being drained at an alarming rate and we’re committed to continuing to build our solution. Sustainable Sprinkler has advocated on its behalf by working with all types of developments, commercial, private, and public to lower water consumption and associated costs.

Included are professional installation, no digging, 24/7 cloud service, and the ability to control your irrigation system from anywhere in the world. Your constant access to your lawn can be through our app on the Apple Store or Google Play Store, or any tablet, computer, or phone. Accessibility to your system 24 hours a day, savings of up to 50% on your water bill, and knowing that your lawn will be watered when needed. This is a product no homeowner, property manager, HOA, or City municipality should not be using.

Florida Rainfall

One inch of rain is equal to 27,154 gallons per 1 acre. South Florida has an annual precipitation of 61.3 inches per year. That is an average of 1million 600+ gallons a year for our lawns. Our sprinkler systems use 12 gallons per minute. This works out to 2160 gallons of water a week for 3 hours of sprinkling, with an average of 112,000 gallons a year per household. Most the lawns in South Florida are over watered. Using Sustainable Sprinklers patented smart system saves water, money and our drinking water.

Keeping Lawns Green

Run-off pollution occurs with each rainfall when water flows over land picking up soil and grass clippings and depositing them in streams, ponds, wetlands, lakes, and rivers.

In Florida at least once a year we see major water blooms and algae growth in our water ways. Run-off pollution is the major cause of this. And in many of these areas, it affects our tourism but even more importantly our drinking water.

Sprinkling your lawn correctly, and making sure that you are not over watering is the most important way to help minimize run-off pollution. Another way to help is called Grass cycling.

To Grass cycle correctly is for you or your landscaper to leave your grass clippings on your lawn after each time it is mowed. Also make sure that you sweep all clippings off of any concrete or porous area onto your lawn. Never air blow your lawn as all of the grass clippings will end up in the rain run-off and into our waterways. Grass cycling is also healthy for your lawn because as the clippings decompose they are filled with nitrogen, fertilizer and mostly water. Leaving grass clippings will not turn your lawn brown and will also help the clipped grass be out of South Florida direct intense summer sun.

Using a patented product from Sustainable Sprinkler for your lawns sprinkling needs is a great way to start saving money, water and electricity. Speaking with your landscaper about not blowing your lawn and grass cycling will help with our rain fall run off. Hopefully by watering our lawns correctly and doing some other little things, we can save and conserve our water.

The Rainy Season

Did you know that about half of household water use goes on lawns? In South Florida, we produce about 54 million gallons of drinking water a day. Of that water close to 27 million gallons goes on lawns each day. This does not include watering lawns from private wells.

In South Florida, we get about 50 inches of rain a year,. During the “rainy season,” our monthly rainfall averages are between 7 to 9 inches in each month of June, July, and August. Lawns need about one inch of water per week, the rains during the summer months should provide more than enough water for your lawn.

For the health of your lawn, don’t over water your lawn, if it has rained in the last day your lawn does not need to be watered. If you do over water your grasses’ roots stay shallow, watering less frequently, the roots will grow deeper, and your grass will be healthier.

Run Off

During the summer months, Florida has “the rainy season. During this season on average 65-75% more rainwater will be saturating your lawn. While a large amount of rainfall on your lawn might be good for some of your plants, the overflow of water that flows off your lawn is toxic to our canals, rivers, lakes, and wetlands.

High levels of phosphorus are naturally found in Florida’s soil. An important thing to understand about Florida’s soil is it is naturally high in phosphorus. This is significant to be aware of as (blue-green algae) toxic water blooms are formed by high concentrations of Phosphorus in the canals, lakes, rivers, and our drinking water. The blooms produce toxins that affect our drinking water and at certain levels, this water is harmful to humans and our aquatic life.

Storm water runoff is the water that cannot be absorbed by your lawn and plants. This water goes directly to the closest body of water. Not only is this water contaminated with fertilizer but also grass clippings. This makes the potential for water blooms to increase significantly.

To reduce storm water runoff, the most effective thing you can do is to water your lawn correctly. You will be doing more harm to your lawn and most importantly to our environment if you sprinkle the day of or the day after a rainstorm. Doing this helps our environment, saves water, saves electricity and saves money.

Soil type, field slope, and flow rate all affect surface irrigation erosion, with flow rate being the main factor that can be managed. Ideally, sprinkler irrigation will have no runoff, but application rates on moving irrigation systems can exceed the soil infiltration rate, resulting in runoff and erosion



Over watering a lawn is much worse for the grass and trees than under watering a lawn because a lawn that is watered too much will starve the soil of oxygen. Air is extremely important to the health of the soil and to promote deep digging grass roots. The soil underneath your sod is composed of sand, silt, and clay particles – as well as porous spaces. … Without oxygen, the roots of the sod will suffocate and die, leaving the plant with a very shallow root system.
