Summer is just around the corner, and as the weather heats up, our gardens are getting thirsty! Now is the perfect time to check your irrigation systems are in working order.

For the residents that have built in our estates Vivente Living and Wentworth West, their front garden irrigation system is set up for them as part of our landscaping bonus.  When choosing your sprinkler system, we have looked for Water Wise Approved and Smart Approved WaterMark symbols to guarantee water efficiency.

Make sure your irrigation system is in tip-top shape! That means checking for any damaged sprinkler heads, leaks or other problems needing repair. A faulty system can waste a lot of water and can be the reason for a higher bill.

Did you know over 40% of household water used is outside the home?

It is also important to find out your watering days and make sure your sprinkler run times are correct. Your irrigation system is hooked up to a standard time controller which should be set to your allocated watering days and only water once a day (either before 9am or after 6pm).
