Smart controllers process environmental data to regulate the timing and duration of watering from lawn irrigation systems. However, when conventional systems turn on, their sprinklers still waste water with overlapping sprays and uncontrolled over-spraying on to hardscapes. IrriGreen extends digital technology out to the sprinklers themselves to solve this fundamental problem.
Ordinary irrigation systems surround the outside of each watering zone with four to six sprinkler heads. They spray water in wasteful overlapping arcs, over-watering some sections and under-watering others. Difficult to adjust and keep in alignment, conventional sprinklers also waste water by over-shooting on to hardscapes. With IrriGreen, just one sprinkler in the interior of each zone waters evenly in the exact shape of each zone, with minimal overlap and no over-spraying outside the zone. The Genius Sprinkler features a digital valve-in-head and a pop-up rotor with a low-flow, 14-stream, multi-trajectory nozzle. As the Genius™ Server monitors and dynamically adjusts stream volume, direction and distance, Genius Sprinklers conform watering patterns to the specific outline of each zone and maintain uniform water distribution at distances from 0-35 feet within each zone.
High Profile, the first choice of commercial property managers and homeowners in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area for comprehensive, single-source grounds care, has done irrigation system installation and maintenance for more than 20 years. To date in 2014, they have completed 30 installations with IrriGreen. The largest is a 2.5-acre residential project.
