With outdoor watering accounting for nearly 70% of water used in Herriman City, it is increasingly important to maintain and calibrate outdoor sprinkler systems to avoid water waste. Luckily, you can get a good idea of how efficient your sprinkler system is by performing a simple sprinkler performance test using catch cups.
Sprinkler performance tests aim to determine the precipitation rate of your sprinklers, allowing you to set your irrigation clocks and run times to water based on current local conditions.
Now that you have your sprinkler output in inches/hour, you can set your irrigation system to run based on your lawns water requirement as determined by local temperature and precipitation. Use the chart below as a starting point to determine how many irrigation cycles you should set your clocks to run each week, given the results of the catch cup test.
