Power outages may erase irrigation timer programs
If you experience a power outage at your home or business, please check your irrigation timer and reprogram* if necessary. If the back-up battery in the timer is not fresh, the timer may clear your previous program and can default to water every day, which can negatively affect your water bill. As a precaution, change out your back-up battery every 6 months to help prevent this problem from occurring.
*Per current drought restrictions, sprinklers are limited to 8 minutes / 2 times week. Water-efficient sprinklers, such as drip systems, are exempt from the 8 minute time limit.
