While the recent rainy weather pattern is helping Central Floridians’ yards stay green and thriving, residents with in-ground sprinkler systems set to automatic timers might find they’re overwatering.

OUC is now offering a rebate of up to $200 to its customers for a smart solution for overwatering that will also help lower monthly water bills. Here’s some more info to share with your readers:

WaterSense labeled irrigation controllers, which act like a thermostat for a sprinkler system telling it when to turn on and off, use local weather and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions on the site. With proper installation, programming and maintenance, homeowners can use these controllers instead of standard controllers to save water.

The new controller must be a standalone EPA WaterSense labeled controller. Plug-in or add-on units are not eligible. This rebate is only available for OUC potable water customers with in-ground irrigation systems. Homes using reclaimed water or water from a well, lake or pond for irrigation are not eligible.
