Common Signs of Pipe Corrosion

WP Law - Thursday, September 01, 2016
pipe leaking

Even the highest quality metal piping system will corrode over time due to oxidation. Severe corrosion can lead to burst pipes, resulting in major property damage that costs thousands in repairs. The longer corrosion is left unchecked, the more costly it will be to repair. Keep an eye out for these warning signs and catch pipe corrosion early.

Discolored Water

Water that has been discolored by corrosion may be either obvious straight from the tap or it may leave behind stains in the sink, bathtub, or toilet tank. The most dramatically tinted water will be from the "first-draw" of the day. First-draw water is an important indicator of corrosion due to sitting in the pipes overnight.
Corroded copper pipes will leave blue-green stains, while galvanized iron/steel pipes will dye water the familiar reddish brown of rust.
Look for consistent changes over time. Occasional discoloration unrelated to corrosion can happen after a water supply is turned back on after lengthy disuse or when work is being done on municipal lines.

Strange Taste

Changes to the taste of your tap water are another sign of corrosion. Corroded copper pipes create a metallic taste, while high levels of lead produce a sweet taste. Cold first-draw water that is bitter but goes away later in the day also indicates pope corrosion.


While leaks can have many causes, they are probably the most obvious sign of corrosion. Low water pressure may be caused by a hidden leak. Frequent leaks especially may indicate the presence of "aggressive" corrosive water or that aging metal pipes may be due for replacement.

Frequent Clogs

Pipes that are easily clogged can also mean corrosion. Oxidation and mineral deposits can build up on the inside of pipes, narrowing them.

What can be done?

If you suspect pipe corrosion, consider contacting us at WP Law for more information. We can help to identify corrosion, determine its root cause, and repair any resulting damage.

Choosing the Correct PVC Solvent Cement

WP Law - Monday, June 23, 2014

How to choose the correct PVC Solvent Cement

Choosing the Correct PVC Solvent Cement
The type of application will determine the proper cement to be used. (Example: PVC, Conduit, Sewer & Drain, DWV, Pressure or Non-Pressure) You will also need to consider the weather conditions, pipe and fitting sizes and expiration date stamped on the can.

Three common types of PVC solvent cement are Hot ‘R Cold, Wet ’R Dry, and General PVC solvent cement

Hot ‘R Cold is formulated for PVC applications with temperatures as low as negative 15 degree Fahrenheit and as high as 110 degree Fahrenheit. Hot ‘R Cold is a clear medium bodied, very fast setting, high strength PVC solvent cement for all classes and schedules of pipe and fittings up to 6” diameter, and Schedule 80 through 4” diameter. It is approved for use with irrigation, sewer, drain, DWV and potable water pressure systems.

Wet ‘R Dry is formulated for applications where conditions are very wet and/or quick pressurization is desired. It was developed for specific needs in irrigation, plumbing or pool and spa. Wet ‘R Dry is an aqua blue medium bodied, extremely fast drying, high strength PVC solvent cement for all classes and schedules of pipe and fittings up to 6” diameter, and Schedule 80 through 4” diameter.

General Purpose PVC Solvent Cement is for all types of PVC plastic applications. It is approved for use with industrial pipe application, irrigation, sewer, drain, waste and vent systems, and potable water systems. General Purpose is a clear or gray, heavy bodied, medium setting, high strength PVC solvent cement for all classes and schedules of pipe and fittings up to 12” diameter including schedule 80. Gray only may be used on non-pressure systems through 18” diameter.
Remember that PVC solvent cements must never be used on PVC systems using or being tested by compressed air or gases.

The Crystal Palace's Guide to Greenhouse Irrigation

WP Law - Thursday, May 23, 2013

Greenhouse irrigation is nothing new – a little trip one of London’s greatest greenhouses.

The Crystal Palace's Guide to Greenhouse Irrigation

One of the first, and most spectacular, examples of modern greenhouse irrigation was the Crystal Palace which stood in London from 1851 until 1936. This 19-acre glass building was the brainchild of horticulturalist and garden designer, Joseph Paxton. Paxton submitted his design for England's Great Exhibition held in 1851.

A New Style of Architecture
The Crystal Palace was so called because it was constructed almost entirely of glass panes held in place by metal girders. Many of the architectural methods of strengthening a glass building were invented during the design of the Crystal Palace. These construction details may be common today but to 19th century Londoners they were spectacular.

New Inventions in Greenhouse Irrigation
Just as spectacular were the fountains and cascades that were housed among the lush, exotic exhibits inside and out. When the building was moved in 1854, designers added two massive water towers to each side of the building to provide a gravity-fed water supply.

According to 'The History of the Drip Irrigation System,' the modern automated greenhouse irrigation system whereby water is dripped through pipes wasn't used until 1866, and then met with only limited success. It's hard to imagine that, with such an intricate fountain system, people were watering the lush gardens by hand, but this may well be the case. We may never know because the original Crystal Palace is gone, destroyed by a fire in 1936.

Whether you’re working with a massive greenhouse or one in your backyard, contact the greenhouse irrigation specialists at W. P. Law, Inc. to find the watering system that will work best for your needs.

Two Irrigation Tools that Can Make Trouble-Shooting Your System Easy

Flip Law - Thursday, May 09, 2013

Irrigation tools are only as effective as their users are knowledgeable.

Two Irrigation Tools that Can Make Trouble-Shooting Your System Easy

Two irrigation tools that every professional contractor needs in their arsenal is a quality volt/ohm meter and a wire/ground fault locator. Electrical control problems are second only to piping problems when it comes to troubleshooting an irrigation system. Bad solenoids, and skinned wires have caused more frustration when trying to solve an irrigation system control problem.

Here is a brief description of what these tools do and how they can benefit the user and save time.

1. Volt/Ohm meter. It is amazing how many contractors do not own this simple low-cost piece of equipment. A volt/ohm meter can be used to check the voltage output of a controller and to check the resistance of a solenoid. It can also be used to check continuity. The best part is you can get a decent volt/ohm meter for $30.00 to $50.00.

2. The second piece of equipment contractors should have access to, is a wire/ground fault locator. This piece of equipment is a lot more expensive with a price tag of $700-$800. Ground fault locators can be used to find nicked or broken wires. The wire locator function can be used to find solenoid valves. This is particularly helpful when trouble shooting a system that you did not install.

Check out our fine selection of irrigation tools. If you have questions, just contact us and we’ll help you find what you need.

3 Plastic Piping Systems and Their Industrial Applications

Flip Law - Thursday, March 21, 2013

plastic piping

Industrial piping systems make the right connection.

Industrial plastic piping systems are ideal for handling highly corrosive fluids. These systems are often easier to install than comparable metal piping systems making them more cost effective.

Here are three commonly used thermoplastics that are used in various industrial plastic piping systems:

PVC: Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is the most commonly used thermoplastic piping material and accounts for over 85% of the footage of all thermoplastic piping. PVC has been successfully used in applications such as chemical processing, industrial plating, chilled water distribution, deionized water lines, chemical drainage, water distribution and irrigation. PVC possesses very good physical properties and chemical resistance to acids, alkalis, salt solutions, and many other chemicals. PVC should not be used with polar solvents such as ketones, some chlorinated hydrocarbons, and aromatics. The maximum service temperature for PVC is 140o F. PVC is joined by solvent cementing, threading, or flanging.

CPVC: At 70o F, Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) has similar physical properties to PVC and its chemical resistance is similar to or generally better than that of PVC. CPVC has a maximum service temperature of 210o F and has proven to be an excellent material for handling hot corrosive liquids. CPVC is also used in hot and cold water service and similar applications above the temperature range of PVC. CPVC is joined by solvent cementing, threading, or flanging.

PE: Polyethylene (PE) is the second most widely used thermoplastic piping material. PE is classified into three types. Type I PE has a low density, is relatively soft and flexible, and has low heat resistance. Type II PE has a medium density, is slightly harder, is more resistant to higher temperatures and has increased tensile strength. Type III PE is a higher density material offering maximum physical properties. Type III PE is also referred to as HDPE or high density polyethylene. Due to its toughness and superior physical properties, Type III PE is the preferred piping material. PE piping is most frequently used in gas and water distribution systems.

When it comes to selecting the proper industrial thermoplastic piping system for your application, the experts at W.P. Law, Inc. can help guide you to the right match for your project.


3 Common Questions about Sewage Lift Pump Stations

Flip Law - Monday, March 18, 2013

sewage lift pump station

Did you ever wonder how sewage lift pump stations work?

Water treatment and sewage lift pump stations are important parts of having a water system that is healthy and functional. There are many people who have challenging questions regarding these special applications and here are some of the most common.

1. What information should about my application should I collect before selecting a pump for my system? Pumps are a highly engineered product and selecting the proper pump for an application requires some specific information. First of all it is important to understand what kind of liquid you will be pumping. Information such as Specific Gravity, percent solids, spherical diameter of these solids and the temperature of the fluid are all critical pieces of information. You will also need to know the position of the pump in relation to the fluid, the elevation from the pump to the discharge point, the flow rate requirement in gallons per minute (gpm) and the pressure requirement in pounds per square inch (psi). In addition to these items you will need to know what electrical power is available in terms of voltage and phase.

2. What is the difference between a centrifugal pump and a trash pump? In reality they are both types of centrifugal pumps, however the trash style is created with a volute and an impeller that will allow the passage of large predetermined sized solids.

3. When sizing a pump is bigger always better? The short answer in no. A pump that is oversized for an application will typically not operate at the pump’s best efficiency point (BEP). Not only does this lower efficiency consume more power, but operating a pump near the ends of the pump curve will shorten the life of the pump motor and could potentially cause the motor to burn up.

Like any industry there are a lot of questions you may find yourself asking and it is challenging to find a good solid resource who can properly help you. The experts at W.P. Law, Inc. can help. They have a team of knowledgeable staff that can guide you through any problem or question you have about sewage lift pump stations.


How Does It Work? Sewage Pump Stations Help Keep Our Water Supply Clean

Flip Law - Thursday, March 14, 2013

sewage pump station

Sewage pump stations maintain a clean world.

You may not have thought about this before, but sewage pump stations are largely to be credited for your quality of life. One of the greatest parts about the world we live in today is the fact that we can have clean water.

The remarkable ingenuity that the generations of people before us have worked to establish has given us a world where we can live without fear of disease and other contaminants. But what does it take to get there? How is it that sewage pump stations work and mange to take some of the most disgusting water imaginable and turn it back into something clean and safe?

Sewage pump stations play an important role in achieving this amazing accomplishment. Water from these stations is pumped to treatment plants where it is cleaned and purified. The treatment of the water takes three processes.

1. First the solids and oils are removed from the water.
2. Next the water is moved to where all biological matter is removed.
3. Finally the water is disinfected.

Once the water has completed all of these the water is pumped back out into the natural places from where it originally came, such as lakes and rivers.

Pump stations make the world go ‘round.

Pump stations are one of the major marvels of the modern world. While we take it for granted, the water system that we utilize and the treatment we can give to waste water is unprecedented in history. Our ability to ensure a relatively consistent level of clean and safe water is remarkable in comparison to past generations and less fortunate areas of the world.

Pump stations play an important part of this process. In addition to adding functionality and ease to our lives, the following are some of the main ways pump stations help communities.

1. Drinking water: Without working pump stations our communities would not have clean water.

2. Living Conditions: Pump stations help to keep our environment safe and clean. If it wasn’t for the wastewater being diverted away from homes, schools, businesses, and offices, our world would be a much different place than it is today.

3. Preventing Illness: Right now you rarely have to worry about diseases that are typically associated with contaminated water, but without pump stations, you would be exposed to harmful substances.

During the separation period of the purification process water travels through the plant and is processed. When this occurs it is released back into natural water systems where it can benefit communities.

If you have further questions about pump stations let W.P. Law, Inc.’s trained and certified experts assist you with any of your pump station needs.

Irrigation system – putting all the pieces together.

An irrigation system is a valuable part of your landscape. Plants, flowers, and lawns need water to thrive; installing an automatic irrigation system will not only help keep your landscape looking great, but will add value to your property.

Understanding your irrigation system parts and what they do is an important part in installing and maintaining your irrigation system. To help you understand your irrigation system, here is a list of the major components and their function.

Irrigation Controller: The irrigation controller is a programmable device that is connected to the control valves. The irrigation controller turns the valves on and off based on the programmed days and times.

Control valves: The water in the irrigation system is regulated by the control valves. When the system is turned on either manually or automatically by the timer, the control valves allow water to move from the water source to the sprinkler heads.

PVC Piping: PVC pipes are buried underground and provide the conduit for the water to flow through to the sprinkler heads.

Sprinkler Heads: The sprinkler heads disperse the water to the lawn. There are several types of heads available depending on your particular needs.

Irrigation Backflow Preventer - Stop dirty backflow from contaminating your drinking water

Flip Law - Thursday, August 23, 2012

irrigation backflow

Install an irrigation backflow preventer to help keep your potable water clean andclear of contaminants.

If you have a sprinkler system that is connected to your potable water, you need to have an irrigation backflow preventer. The backflow preventer stops contaminants such as fertilizers, manures, and pesticides from backing up into your drinking water. Without one, you risk exposing yourself and your family to serious health risks.

If your sprinkler system was improperly installed or you experience a sudden drop in water pressure, water containing pesticides, fertilizer, or pet waste can be pulled into your potable water and contaminate it. An irrigation backflow preventer will protect your water in the event this occurs.

There are many types of backflow preventers and codes vary by locations so you should consult an irrigation specialist to determine which type is right for you. Many states require backflow preventers be installed with sprinkler systems. Check with your city for your local requirements.

It is necessary to drain your backflow preventer before the freezing temperatures arrive to prevent damage to your system. To protect your system, you should take the necessary steps to winterize your entire irrigation system.

For all of your irrigation supply needs, contact the irrigation specialists at W.P. Law, Inc.

Wastewater Pump Stations - Cleaning our Nation's water supply

Terry Brady - Monday, June 18, 2012

Wastewater pump stations – Where does it go when you flush?

Have you ever wondered what actually happens when you flush your toilets? Where does all that waste go?

Your community has an entire system of underground pipes that carry the waste water away from your home and into a waste water treatment facility. Waste water pump stations are used to transfer this waste water to treatment facilities. They play a vital role in removing the waste from our country’s water supply.

Once the waste water arrives at the treatment facility, the water is moved into a large tank where the solid materials drop to the bottom and the oil is removed. The water is then pumped into another tank where it is cleaned and any bacterial material is removed. The final step is to sanitize and purify the water.

At the end of this process, the water is pumped into local waterways such as canals, lakes and other large bodies of water. It is then pumped back into our communities. Without the valuable wastewater pump stations, we risk running out of clean water for our daily use.

Wastewater Pump Stations: How Do They Work?

Flip Law - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Wastewater pump stations play a vital role in the nation’s water supply.

wastewater pump stationWastewater pump stations play an important role in our country’s water supply. They purify and provide clean healthy water for our use. Without these stations, we would not have enough water to continue to exist. We depend on the recycling of our wastewater supply to survive.

Wastewater pump stations move the water through a series of pipes and pump stations to the treatment plants to be cleaned and purified. At the treatment plant the water goes through a three step cleaning process. The first step is to remove the solids and oil from the water. The water is pumped into a tank and the solids sink to the bottom of the tank. The water then gets moved for the second step which is to remove all the biological matter. The water is then disinfected during the third step.

When the water completes the three step process and is clean and purified it is pumped back into the rivers, and various other bodies of water. Without these pump stations and treatment stations we would run out of our clean water supply.

Sewage Lift Pump Stations - 2 Benefits of Remote Monitoring

Terry Brady - Monday, March 19, 2012

Sewage lift pump stations utilize remote monitoring to help prevent maintenance hassles and keep the operator well informed.

Sewage lift stations are vital in the process of purifying wastewater and supplying the community with clean water. A sewage lift station pumps raw sewage and wastewater to the wastewater treatment plant. The wastewater treatment plant processes the wastewater by removing the solids. The processed wastewater (effluent) can be further treated and returned to the water system or it can be land applied through a wastewater spray field. To monitor the entire process of purifying the water remote monitoring is used.

Two of the major benefits to using a remote monitoring system are:
  1. Warning of maintenance issues: The remote monitoring system tracks pump warnings on the temperature or other conditions. The remote monitoring system will alert the operator of conditions that may cause maintenance issues.
  2. Keeps the operator informed of the conditions: The operator will receive all the updates on the internet which include the running time, water pressure and power status. They can monitor the lift station at all times and always know the water pressure and levels.

Constant monitoring of the lift pump stations is required to prevent problems. Remote monitoring helps to keep the operator informed at all times of the conditions and provides very valuable information to ensure that the water keeps flowing.

Contact WP Law to find out more about lift pump stations remote monitoring and other equipment.

Water Filtration: What it Means to Your Irrigation System

Flip Law - Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Water quality is one of the most important factors when considering an irrigation system.  Poor water quality can be attributed to several factors.  Among them are organic and inorganic solids.  These solids may be suspended or dissolved or a combination of both.  The primary problem caused by these contaminates is plugging or clogging of orifices, particularly in drip or micro irrigation systems.  The solution to this problem is the installation of a water filtration system.

There are several options to choose from when considering a water filtration system for use with an irrigation system.  The type of water filtration system you chose is dependant on your water source and initial water quality.  The three filtration methods commonly used with irrigation systems are screen filters, disc filters and sand media filters.  Screen filters, as their name implies, use a screen to collect contaminates.  The screens are usually made of a stainless steel mesh, but are also available in plastic as well. Disc filter use a series of discs with grooves that are stacked and compressed on a spine, with the grooves on each disc running opposite the adjacent disc.  As the water moves through the disc system, contaminates are trapped and removed.  Sand media filters use a bed of sand to collect contaminants.  Sand media filters are cleaned by backwashing.  Backwashing forces clean water back through the media bed thereby dislodging the contaminants and piping them to waste.

To function properly, all filtration systems need to be cleaned frequently.
  The poorer the water quality the more often the filter element will need to be cleaned.  Automating the cleaning process is the best way to ensure that it is done when needed.  Most automated filter cleaning processes use differential pressure to determine when the filter is dirty and requires cleaning.

Each water filtration method has its pros and cons and the best system for any specific situation depends on a variety of factors, including the initial water quality and the use of the water after filtration.  Keep in mind that filtration is a critical component of any drip or micro irrigation system and is not the place to skimp on costs.  Using a poorly designed or undersized filtration system can render you irrigation system useless if it allows plugging or clogging of emitters.

•   Follow the manufactures specifications and instructions.
•   Be sure to irrigate turf separately from shrubs.
•   Match the precipitation rate between heads.
•   Mixing rotary heads with spray sprinklers or misting type heads should be avoided.
•   Don’t waste water by throwing it over sidewalks and driveways. This can waste hundreds of gallons of water per cycle.
•   Irrigate different zones, like sunny zones vs. hillsides, separately.

Water control systems are great for the budget and environment, especially with new technology and do-it-yourself systems available, so find the right one that works for you.

Water Features Add a Unique Feel to Any Home or Business

Flip Law - Thursday, December 16, 2010
There are a variety of water features to choose from to add a unique piece of art to any home or commercial establishment, including large scale fountains, small ponds, architectural fountains and waterfalls.

Water always catches our eye. It doesn’t matter if it’s a calm river, a flowing brook, a large lake, the roaring ocean or a beautiful fountain; we often stop and look at the beauty that comes from the water that’s part of our daily lives. Water brings on a peaceful feeling when we’re around it, and it can be due to its calming flow when it’s an indoor fountain, or it can be due to the roaring sound of a large waterfall with its beauty in nature. Whether it’s simple or big, loud or quiet, water has a similar, peaceful and calming effect on many of us, so it’s no wonder we often want to bring the look and feel of water into our lives by making it a part of our homes and businesses.

Types of Water Features

Water features can range anywhere from fountains to man-made streams to small fish ponds, but no matter what type of water feature you’re looking at, it’s a piece of modern art that is unique and attention grabbing.

Large scale fountains may be an option for a commercial building, whereas a small scale fountain may be better suited for a home. If you own a spa, you may choose a medium-sized, calming fountain for your business.

For outdoor lovers, a small pond with some nice stones may be an option whereas a home owner may choose to have a man-made stream or pondless water feature to add to the ambiance of the location. A small fish pond may be suitable for either a home or an outdoor commercial establishment, as well.

Architectural fountains and floating fountains are a nice touch to any commercial dwelling, or if you already have a fountain at home, you may opt for adding some fountain décor and accessories to change or spruce things up a bit.

Purchasing Water Features

Water features may be easy to install on your own depending on the size of the feature you choose. However, it’s always good to get some expert advice when purchasing water features. Look for businesses that have a large variety so you have options and can rest well knowing you chose the right water feature for your home or business.

If you do choose to go the ‘do-it-yourself’ route, get as much detail and information from the company as you can so your installation goes as smoothly as possible, and make sure you have all of the parts you need for correct installation. Parts and products may include pumps, liners, filters, jets, nozzles, piping, stones or chemicals to sanitize your water if needed. In addition, look for an establishment with good customer support in the event that you need to call and ask questions during installation or down the road if an issue arises.

Water features are a nice touch to add a good energy to the esthetics of a residential or commercial dwelling, and there are several options to choose from to add beauty, peacefulness and uniqueness to any location.

Pump Stations – An Overview

Flip Law - Monday, December 13, 2010
Pump stations are a necessity for many types of businesses and may be used for sewage, wastewater, irrigation water, drainage and dust suppression.

Pump stations, or pumping stations, are used for different infrastructure systems typically in the industrial arena to pump liquids from one location to another. Applications for pump stations include wash-down operations, wastewater and sewage lift, dust suppression, irrigation, drainage of low-lying land, and supplying water to canals, and the name of each system—a few common ones being described within the contents of this article–is typically indicative of its application.

How Pump Stations Work

Pump stations are comprised of pumps, motors, a pump control system, manifolds and valves. Given their hydraulics and electrical controls, pump stations are very technical, but in a nutshell, to work correctly and efficiently, they are set up to provide a specified flow of liquid at a specified pressure to deliver the fluid from the starting point to all targeted areas.

Pump stations can be set up in a variety of ways to work correctly. For example, a pump station may have a main pump and a standby pump or 2 main pumps and a single standby pump or 3 main pumps and no standby pump. Of course, the size of the system, cost and acceptable downtime without fluid flow are all factors to take into account when determining the proper set-up for each system.

Within any given system, you may have a variety of different types of pumps, as well. End suction, submersible, vertical turbine and vertical multi-stage centrifugal pumps are some of the different types of pumps you may find when looking at pump stations.

Common Types of Pump Stations

•   Irrigation Pump Stations: Irrigation pump stations are very common and can be used for many types of businesses and landscapes, including farms, golf courses and low-lying areas where flooding may be a risk. The irrigation pump station is typically the most expensive component in an irrigation system.

•   Sewage Pump Stations: Another common pump station is a sewage pump station, or lift station, that is a key part of any sewage collection system designed to handle raw sewage coming through gravity pipelines found underground. They’re typically designed with end-suction centrifugal pumps that have a large opening to avoid any debris clogging the system.

Purchasing Pump Stations

When looking to purchase a pump station, it’s important to choose a company that 1) takes the time to listen to the customer to provide a station that’s engineered to the customer’s specifications and 2) has high quality, technically advanced pump stations to support the needs of the business for which it’s being purchased. It’s also important that the company selling the pump stations test the pump before it ever leaves the store or warehouse property to ensure it’s in good working order prior to installation.

Though not the most interesting subject for many, pump stations are a necessity for many industries in both the private and public sector, and ensuring that they work efficiently and effectively is critical. When a pump station fails, it can be as simple as a little bit of inconvenience when the water backs up in a community and needs to be shut off for a bit, or could be very damaging to the point of causing flooding due to water not being pumped out as it needs to be from low-lying areas.

Outdoor Living Possibilities & Approach

Flip Law - Saturday, December 11, 2010

Do you love the outdoors? Have you often dreamed about having an outdoor area suitable for entertaining family and friends? Outdoor living lovers typically want to spend as much time outdoors as possible, and would like to do as much as they can to make their homes suitable for outdoor activities. Unfortunately, they often put a stop to this type of dreaming when they start thinking of the time and effort it will take to have their dream of outdoor living become a reality, and they often get ‘stuck’ on what exactly they want to do to upgrade. However, there are several companies out there that can help you have the outdoor living space and lifestyle you desire so you don’t have to do all the work yourself, and the possibilities are endless.

Outdoor Living Possibilities

The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a home conducive to being outdoors as much as possible during the summer months, or all year long for those fortunate enough to live in warmer climates. If you like to entertain, then you may go all out with a pool and outdoor kitchen equipped with a bar, grill, sink and fridge. Or you may simply want all of it for entertaining you and your family.

If swimming’s not your thing, then you may choose to just go with the outdoor kitchen, or if you want to go simpler, look at putting in a nice patio with a nice gas grill that’s screened in to avoid pesky critters.

Or maybe you just want to enjoy the view when you sit outside and opt to have nice landscaping with shrubs and flowers. Lighting is always a nice addition to landscaping that can extend your outdoor time on any given day. Fountains and small ponds can add a nice serene feel and look to any environment, as well.

You can be as creative as you want to be. You can keep it simple or go elaborate. The sky’s the limit, but if it’s your dream of spending more time outdoors, then don’t let anything hold you back!

Selecting the Right Company

Once you’ve decided that you are going to go forward with upgrading your home for a better outdoor living experience, you want to be sure to select the right company that will enable you to enjoy the fruits of your labor as soon as possible. Some key factors to consider are customer service, how long the company’s been in business, areas of expertise, product options and pricing. Do your homework so you can rest assured that you’ve made the right decision for your home. Also, if you’re debating on what types of upgrades are right for you and your home, take the time to speak with a store representative. A good company will have knowledgeable, trained employees who can help you make the right decision for you and will walk you through the ins and outs of the upgrade possibilities and process.

If you’re dream is to have a home that supports your love of outdoor living, then go for it. Think about all the possibilities you have to consider and select the right company for you by doing your homework as suggested here. You’ll be glad you did when you’re sitting outside your home admiring the view.

Choosing the Right Company for Your Agricultural Irrigation System – 5 Tips

Flip Law - Wednesday, December 08, 2010
If you’re looking at installing an agricultural irrigation system, you’ll want to ensure you can trust the company you choose to help with selecting and installing the system that meets your needs. To ensure you’re selecting the right company for you, considering the following questions and tips.

Do they have a wide variety of options? If you’re not sure what system works best for your needs, and you’re shopping around, having options is typically considered a good thing. Look for a company with a large and extensive stock of conventional and drip irrigation equipment to meet your needs. You may also want to consider if they have other outdoor living products and services to meet your needs down the road. It’s often nice to have a one-stop-shop for your outdoor needs once you find a company you like.

Are they irrigation specialists? It’s best to look at companies that have agricultural engineering designers with lots of experience when looking at installing an agricultural irrigation system. The systems can be large and complex, and you don’t want to leave installation to chance with a company that doesn’t have the expertise to ensure both 1) that they’re helping you select the right system for your needs and 2) that they are installing the system you select correctly.

Do they keep parts in stock? There are a lot of parts that go into an irrigation system, including filters, valves, pumps, fittings, piping and sprinklers. You want to make sure the company you choose carries all the parts for the systems they install so you won’t have the hassle of having to switch companies down the road if you would happen to need a part for the agricultural irrigation system you choose.

What’s their customer support like? When selecting the right company to help with your agricultural irrigation needs, it’s good to think long term, so if something were to happen with the system you install, will the company you choose be able to fix it? Are they there for the long-term to partner with you, or do they simply install and that’s it? It’s nice to know that you’re in good hands should you need help with your agricultural irrigation system down the road.

What’s their track record? This is typically common sense for a consumer, but be sure to do your homework on company’s you’re considering for help with your agricultural irrigation needs. How long has the company been in business? Do they have any major complaints against then with the Better Business Bureau?  Do you know others who have used them?   Ask yourself these types of questions when reviewing agricultural irrigation companies, and even ask for referrals from the companies.

Agricultural irrigation is an important necessity for a variety of reasons, and working with a company you know you can trust to help you choose and install an agricultural irrigation system is critical for its success in both the short term and long run.

Tips For Industrial Corrosive Fluids Handling

Flip Law - Saturday, November 06, 2010
If your business deals with industrial corrosive fluids handling, it is time to contact specialists in the field of fluids handling. Many plumbers and technicians can effectively put together the fluid handling solution for water and other non-hazardous liquids. However, when it comes to dangerous chemicals, it pays to bring in professionals who are trained to work with industrial piping systems. Quality and safety hang in the balance when you work with industrial corrosive fluids handling, therefore professional expertise and top notch systems and parts are essential.

What A Professional Can Do

A professional in industrial corrosive fluids handling can design the optimal solution to transport fluid in your business. He or she can advise you on the right type of piping systems to use in order to provide the best protection possible. Engineers can determine the adequate size needed to handle your firm’s needs. They can set up and test the piping systems designed to handle corrosive fluids, so that you are confident in the safety and security of the systems in your business.

Your industrial corrosive fluids handling system usually requires special training for the maintenance staff to be able to safely handle any repair needs. Often time a professional is needed to provide expert advice.  An expert can effectively and quickly repair the pumps, piping, valves and gaskets that make up your system to ensure that you experience minimal downtime. If replacement of your line or a portion of it is necessary, a professional is often able to run a parallel system while making the transition, so you are not losing valuable production time.

The Right Parts To Do The Job Right

For industrial corrosive fluids handling, specialized piping is necessary. Dual contained piping systems are critical to the safe handling of many such fluids. With the dual contained piping system, there is essentially a pipe within a pipe. The space between is monitored in order to detect leakage as soon as it occurs and long before they become a hazard to people or the environment. It increases safety and protection and gives peace of mind to those dealing with such substances.

Process piping systems that are designed to handle the fluids you deal with are also an integral part of safely handling those substances. Made from a variety of materials, they have in-line components that control and monitor temperature, flowrate and pressure of the fluids flowing through them.

What Happens When Industrial Corrosive Fluids Handling Is Not Taken Care Of

When industrial corrosive fluids handling is not taken care of professionally and effectively, it is a disaster waiting to happen. The wrong piping systems, or ineffective monitoring, can mean that leaks occur putting the site, the environment and, most importantly, people at risk. Serious injury and even death may occur when individuals are exposed to corrosive fluids.

One industrial accident involving corrosive fluids can easily be the downfall of a company. If negligence is found to be the cause of such an accident; lawsuits, fines and repairs can easily wipe out the most solvent of companies. Prevent industrial corrosive fluids disasters by taking the right preventative steps now.



Advice From Terry Brady On Fluid Handling and Outdoor Living

Flip Law - Friday, November 05, 2010
Terry Brady, Executive Vice President of W.P. Law, Inc. is a go-to guy for anyone looking for information on fluid handling. He finished his Agricultural Engineering degree one year after joining the company where he still works today, and worked his way to the top. As he left Clemson University, little did he know that he would go on to become one of the fluid handling industry’s foremost experts.

Irrigation Systems

Terry will be the first to tell you that irrigation is multi-faceted and requires expert knowledge. Whether your irrigation system is one for your home, commercial property or a sports facility, consulting an irrigation specialist will help you design the ideal system, troubleshoot your existing one, help you find the right contractor to do the work or give you the necessary guidelines for installation.

No matter what your fountain project, whether it is a pondless water feature, a residential water garden or a commercial or municipal fountain, the right pumps, pipes and up-to-date technology will help you achieve the desired results. Having a proper design and using quality components makes all the difference when it comes to fountains. Because most fountains run 18 to 20 hours per day their components must tolerate a lot of wear and tear. Choosing high quality supplies will mean years of trouble-free enjoyment of your fountain.

Outdoor Living
Creating a unique outdoor living space can increase the value of your home and add a special element to the outdoor space you enjoy. Being outside is fun and relaxing and something most people enjoy fully. Take the time to create a special outdoor living space that suits your lifestyle and tastes.

If you are looking to create a relaxing oasis in which to unwind and relax, surrounded by the sound of gently running water, you can create it quickly with the addition of a water feature and some landscape lighting.

If your favorite thing to do outside is entertain, an outdoor kitchen is just the thing. You will also need to decide if your cooking element is going to be something high tech like a gourmet grill, built-in outdoor cooking spaces or if you are going to opt instead for fire pits for charcoal cooking and campfires.

Depending on the climate in your area and the seasons you plan to use your outdoor living space, you will also need to look into patio heaters to keep your space comfortable for family and friends. Additional landscape lighting for ambiance, safety and utility are also recommended.

His many years in the business of providing fluid handling and outdoor living solutions has made Terry L. Brady a resource that many people turn to. For anyone looking to do irrigation work, fountains, outdoor living and industrial or municipal fluid handling, Terry and his team can answer questions and make recommendations from their extensive experience.



Finding The Right Pipe and Pump Supplies

Flip Law - Friday, November 05, 2010
Choosing the right pipe and pump supplies is critical to the success of any fluid handling job you undertake. The right equipment for industrial needs is not the same as an irrigation system for a backyard. Commercial fountains have different requirements than residential pondless water features. Sports facilities require completely different irrigation systems than farms. Industrial pump and pipe needs vary tremendously from company to company. Knowing what you need it complex.

Using Experts To Make The Right Choice

Because of the endless things to consider when dealing with pipes and pump supplies, it makes sense to consult an expert. In fact most companies which specialize in fluid handling will have trained sales consultants who can help you find the exact supplies you need to get the job done. Make sure that the specialist you are dealing with knows truly knows your pump and pipe supply sector.

As with many industries, technology is constantly changing when it comes to fluid handling. Few of us have the time or interest to keep on top of such changes. However, specialists in the field make it their business to do so. Therefore they can provide you with the latest in innovations to solve your fluid handling challenges. You don’t want to choose a technology that will be obsolete in just a few years. Experts can help you avoid that.

Choosing The Right Provider of Pipe and Pump Supplies

Finding the right supplier of the parts you need for your fluid handling projects is also an important aspect of finding the right pipe and pump supplies. A good company specializing in fluid handling will be able to answer your questions and offer you solutions and advice. If the company you are dealing with cannot do this, you need to find a new company.

If you have industrial pipe and pump supply needs, you may need process piping to prevent contamination or a dual contained piping system to protect from hazardous fluids. You may need a specific type of control system, filtration products or other specialty product. Not every pipe and pump supply company will be able to meet your needs or provide the expertise you are looking for.

While some fluid handling companies handle a diverse range of needs, including irrigation, fountain, industrial, municipal and outdoor living needs, other companies do not. Be sure that the provider you are looking for is specialized in the services and products you need help with and is in tune with the climatic needs of your area.

Finding the right pipe and pump supplies to meet your needs is a matter of finding the right provider
who happens to have the experts you need to confer with on staff. Take the time to explore the different pipe and pump suppliers who specialize in the field you are working in before you make your purchase and get the best, most reliable results possible.

Why You Need Professional Fountain Maintenance & Repair Services

Flip Law - Friday, October 29, 2010


If you have a fountain, maintenance and repairs are a major concern. Using only professional grade parts can make a huge difference in the life of your fountain. Having a professional fountain maintenance repair specialist handle the upkeep of your fountain will also ensure your fountain’s best performance and help it last as long as possible.


Advantages of Using Professional Fountain Maintenance Repair Services


Fountain maintenance and repair can be tricky. Anytime you mix moving parts and water, there are bound to be complications. There are numerous advantages to having professional care for your fountain.


You may be looking at your fountain and thinking that it is beyond repair, but a professional will likely find the solutions that will keep your fountain running for a long time to come. They will also be able to advise you on ways to update your fountain by replacing the pump, upgrading the filtration or adding underwater lighting. This can transform your tired looking fountain into a modern centerpiece.


Skilled fountain maintenance repair professionals can offer you advice on the best way to maintain the fountain between service calls and how to avoid problems. Many of the most common issues with fountains are related to water quality and can be prevented by using proper filtration and regular cleaning.

Fountain professionals are also a source of quality parts from some of the top manufacturers. 
Cheap, poor quality parts found in many “big box” stores are not commercial grade.  These inferior parts have a shorter life and end up costing more in the long run because they need to be replaced more often.


The specialized knowledge of a trained fountain professional delivers reliable results. Do-it-yourself jobs are rarely reliable. When it comes to systems you are completely unfamiliar with, the technical know-how of a professional can make a world of difference. Once completed you won’t be wondering how long the repair will last. You will find that you are confident in the results delivered.


While professional repairs are always more costly than those you do yourself, in the long run you are likely saving yourself money. Poorly done do-it-yourself jobs are often patchwork and it is just a matter of time before it needs to be done again and properly. Sometimes do-it-yourself repairs put additional stress on other parts of your system leading them to break more quickly.


Professional fountain maintenance services can help ensure that your fountain is looking its best.  Regularly scheduled visits to clean, inspect and adjust components can not only save you from the inconvenience of a breakdown, but can also prevent more costly repairs in the future.


Invest in a professional fountain maintenance and repair company to keep you fountain looking and performing at its best.

Essential Tips for Pond Fertilization

Flip Law - Friday, August 27, 2010
Pond fertilization is an excellent tool in pond management. It allows you to improve the water quality greatly. You can even increase fish production in your pond by as much as 300%, because of the increased phytoplankton that results from pond fertilization. Organisms feed on phytoplankton and they flourish in darker waters which result from the fertilization. There is also less algae and fewer submersed aquatic weeds following fertilization. Therefore you should take the time to learn about the details of pond fertilization.

Know Which Types of Ponds To Fertilize

It is incredibly important to only fertilize ponds that are good candidates for pond fertilization because it is not beneficial for every pond. If the water is not hard enough or the soil pH is low, the pond should not be fertilized. You can adjust the pH of the water by applying lime but must wait 4-6 weeks following application before you can attempt pond fertilization.  

If a pond has aquatic weed growth, avoid fertilization. Such growth must be controlled prior to pond fertilization. Black water ponds or muddy ponds are also not good candidates for pond fertilization. If the pond gets runoff from animal manure or organic fertilizer, it does not need pond fertilization.  

Choosing The Right Fertilizer

When you are selecting fertilizer for your pond, be sure to get one that is highly water soluble. If it sinks to the bottom of the pond, you will find that it binds to the soil there and will not fertilize the water. Highly soluble pond fertilizers come in powder, granular and liquid forms. Be sure that the fertilizer has phosphorus, very little nitrogen and no potassium.  

Getting Started With Pond Fertilization

You should do your initial pond fertilization when the water temperature is around 60°F. This is typically around March or April, depending on where you live. You may only need 1 treatment per year, however 3 times a year is the average. Give the pond 2 weeks to adjust following the initial application before deciding if you need further applications. To help you decide when your pond no longer needs additional fertilization, the guideline is to stop when you can no longer see an object that is 18” below the water surface.   

If you are using liquid fertilizer you will need to mix it with 10 parts water to 1 part fertilizer before distributing it before across the pond. Powder or granular fertilizers should be dissolved in water and the same ratio used prior to application.  

Make sure you do not fertilize your pond if the temperature of the water is lower than 60°F. Typically this is in September or October. Pond fertilization when water is too cold is ineffective and may cause algae issues that become apparent when the water warms up again.  

Be sure to purchase a quality pond fertilization product and seek professional help if you have questions about the process. Pond fertilization is an important aspect of caring for and maintaining a healthy pond.

The Allure of Water Gardens and Waterfalls

Flip Law - Saturday, August 21, 2010
Water gardens and waterfalls are a beautiful addition to any landscape. They add a touch of peacefulness to your surroundings and help to create an area of true relaxation that blends seamlessly with nature. Creating and maintaining a water area is an enjoyable hobby and a joy to behold. However, the initial setting up of water gardens and waterfalls is more involved than it looks.  

You can achieve the water garden or waterfall oasis that you are striving for if you successfully bring together a healthy flow of water, aquatic plants, fish and good bacteria. In addition you will need to make sure there are adequate biological and mechanical filters, as well as quality plumbing and pumps. If all these things work together correctly you will find that the system is balanced and your oasis is perfect. Little maintenance is required once you have achieved balance.  

The Right Equipment For Water Gardens and Waterfalls

When considering adding water gardens or waterfalls to your grounds, be sure you purchase only quality products. You will need reliable pumps, filters, piping, jets, nozzles, liners and more to ensure continued flow of water in your creation. By opting for products that are not up to the task, you will experience frequent breakdowns, an unbalanced ecosystem, and need to replace the parts and equipment more often than you should. By investing in more reliable equipment, your water gardens and waterfalls will flow continually and you will have minimal maintenance to do.  

Upkeep of Water Gardens and Waterfalls

Once you create your little oasis and it is in perfect balance, there will still be some required maintenance to do. Depending on the climate where you live you may have more maintenance or less. For those in a warm climate, water gardens and waterfalls may be enjoyed year-round. The upkeep of the water feature is limited to monitoring water levels, controlling algae, and cleaning debris from filters. Mostly you will do little more than add good bacteria and clean the skimmer net every week or so.   

If you live in a colder climate you will need to do more to maintain your water garden or waterfall. You will first have to decide if you plan to leave it running during the winter months or if you will stop the pump and have it freeze. If there are fish you will need to remove them or have a heater to keep them alive. If you allow your water area to freeze, you will have to rebalance the system again when you start it back up. In the spring you will need to clean all the filters in your system and then drain all the water and refill it with fresh water.  

Consult a professional before embarking on your water garden or waterfall project
. You will get the information you need to make sure that you have an ecologically balanced system with the correct equipment and components to make sure your flowing water system is healthy and attractive, so you get to enjoy the tranquility of flowing water in your surroundings.

The Basics of Irrigation Troubleshooting

Flip Law - Friday, August 20, 2010
Irrigation systems are tricky to maintain and anyone with one is sure to need irrigation troubleshooting help from time to time. There are so many things that can go wrong, such as your system inadequately covering the area it is supposed to, leaving brown patches; uneven water flow; systems that refuse to shut off; or portions that refuse to work. Rest assured that any mechanical system dealing with water is bound to have some issues. However knowing a little about irrigation troubleshooting will help you avoid and deal with such issues.  

Regular maintenance and upgrading your irrigation system when necessary are key components when it comes to irrigation troubleshooting. In fact, you will face significantly fewer problems that require troubleshooting if you do such things.  

Regular Maintenance Reduces The Need For Irrigation Troubleshooting

Preventative maintenance is essential to irrigation troubleshooting.

•   Do regular check-ups on various parts of your system. Schedule a monthly inspection of all parts, including scanning for leaks, sprinkler heads that are clogged or broken and other problems with the system.
•   Regular cleaning of nozzle screens and micro-irrigation filters should be done on a regular basis to prevent clogging.
•   Check water pressure regularly as it can cause efficiency issues if it fluctuates.
•   Make sure your sprinkler heads are adjusted correctly so that they adequately water the areas that are needed.
•   Bring in an irrigation specialist to ensure that your system is ready for winter. They have equipment to properly drain and “blow out” your system, so lingering water doesn’t freeze and damage different aspects of your irrigation system. Winterizing is essential if you live in a cold climate.

Upgrades Minimize the Need For Irrigation Troubleshooting  

Consider changes to your system. If you find that your irrigation system is over-watering, especially when there has been rain, you may want to get the technology to detect such issues. Rain shutoff switches are inexpensive and are easy to attach to most irrigation systems. This will save you from an inflated water bill and excess watering problems. Another water-saving investment you may want to make is in smart technology which includes sensors which check weather and soil moisture conditions. Automatic changes to the irrigation schedule of your system are made depending on the readings of such sensors.  

There is some new technology worth considering also. If you opt for water-efficient products when you upgrade your system, your water utility may give you rebates. Check it out before making your purchase. Look into low volume, micro-irrigation options for landscaping irrigation. Significantly less water is used with micro spray jets, drip irrigation, bubbler irrigation and micro-sprinklers, helping you save water and reducing runoff.  

It is extremely valuable to know when to call an irrigation specialist.
Such individuals have the specialized knowledge and expertise to effectively deal with serious irrigation problems. If a review of your system reveals nothing that you can deal with, call in a specialist to take care of the job. You should also have your system audited by such a specialist in order to ensure that it is running optimally and your areas are getting the necessary irrigation.

The Difference Floating Fountains Make

Flip Law - Thursday, August 19, 2010
Floating fountains are an exciting addition to any body of water, whether natural or artificial. If you are looking for a unique and attractive addition to the landscaping of your business or home, floating fountains are an excellent choice. They beautify ponds, lakes and other bodies of water and add movement and visual interest.

Benefits of Floating Fountains

Apart from the beauty of floating fountains, they actually do have a practical purpose also. All bodies of water need aeration to stay healthy. Floating fountains can assist in maintaining water quality with an infusion of oxygen. Algae are controlled and organic matters decompose more quickly in water with a fountain. The water quality is much improved and even smells better. For ponds and lakes that have variable water levels, floating fountains are an ideal solution.  

Floating Fountain Uses

There are so many places where floating fountains can be used, both in private and public spaces. You can easily determine where people will want to congregate with the addition of a fountain. The relaxing sounds of flowing water and the beauty of shooting plumes of water are irresistible to almost everyone.

Public fountains in municipalities are an excellent location for floating fountains. Custom designs can create something unique and eye-catching.  

Pools and ponds can remain algae-free and a healthy environment for plant life and fish, with the use of a floating fountain surface aerator.  

Amusement parks can create light and water shows using powerful floating fountains that shoot water 100 feet in the air.  

Versatility of Floating Fountains

Floating fountains are actually the pump systems used to create water movement patterns in the air. You can use one or multiple floating fountains to create the water feature you are striving for. Such fountains are available in hundreds of different models and can be customized to the needs of the customer. Power levels start at ½ Horsepower and go to 50 horsepower and even beyond with custom models. Heavy duty fountains deal with larger bodies of water or for more spectacular water displays. Residential models are much smaller but work wonderfully to create a beautiful display of water. Solar models are also available and are excellent in sunny areas.  

A combination of a floating fountain with a lighting system in a pond or lake creates an unforgettable centerpiece that draws attention to any home or business. Seek professional help when deciding on the floating fountains for your project. It is easy to select a product that is ineffective or too powerful for your needs. By choosing high quality parts recommended by experienced pros will make a huge difference for maintenance, performance and the life of your floating fountains. With a little help you can create a thing of water beauty.

Create Beautiful Waterscapes with Pondless Water Features

Flip Law - Monday, July 26, 2010

Few things offer the peace and serenity that running water provides, and pondless water features are an affordable and hassle-free way to beautify your property. Perhaps you have dreamed of having a body of water or pond near your home but do not want to deal with the expense and high-maintenance involved in digging a pond in your back yard. You can still achieve the same beauty and tranquility through pondless water features. These features include waterfalls and streams complete with rocks and realistic aquatic plants that can turn your yard into a peaceful sanctuary.

Installing pondless water features allows even the most hands-off homeowners to create an eye-appealing focal point for their properties. One possibility is the disappearing pondless waterfall which gives the appearance of a disappearing waterfall and stream. The water level never pools above rock level and the gravel fill, creating a soft waterscape.

Innovative Pondless Water Features Create Natural-looking Beauty

This feature works by capturing the water in a basin underground lined and filled with rock and gravel. This basin also houses the discreet pump equipment, which keeps the waterfall looking natural.

The water circulates from beneath the rocks and gravel by the concealed and submersed pump and then travels via an underground pipe directly to the waterfall. Flowing down the stream, the water empties into the waterfall basin.

Pondless Water Features are Safe, Low Maintenance

The unique timer feature of the pondless waterfall makes it virtually maintenance-free. A timer controls the pump operation, which saves energy.  An auto-fill valve is used to replace evaporated water; these features keep the waterfall running smoothly and seamlessly.

For homeowners with small children, pondless water features are much safer than ponds and other bodies of water. The waterfalls and streams do not have significant pools of water, making it unlikely that a child will become injured. These features reduce the drowning concerns associated with backyard ponds. 

Additionally, because the water in pondless water features is always flowing, the water does not become stagnant, eliminating the common problem of mosquitoes that tend to plague standing water.

Choose the Perfect Pondless Water Features Design

When you have an image in your mind of the perfect waterscape for your lawn, what does it look like? Working with a qualified waterscape contractor can help you to choose the design that meets your specifications and tastes. Perhaps you are working with a small space and only have room for one waterfall, or have enough yard space for numerous cascading waterfalls and streams. There are several design options available to help you create the pondless water features of your dreams.




W.P. Law, Inc. in SC Celebrates Smart Irrigation Month, Carries the Latest in Smart Irrigation Controllers

Flip Law - Thursday, July 22, 2010

July is Smart Irrigation Month, and W.P. Law, Inc., in Columbia, SC, is celebrating the month by offering the latest in smart irrigation controllers to help consumers save costs, conserve water and maintain lawns and landscapes more efficiently.

The Irrigation Association initiated Smart Irrigation Month in an effort to increase public awareness of the value of water-use efficiency and promote water-saving products, practices and services. As an Irrigation Association member, W.P. Law provides innovative smart irrigation controllers that are compact, flexible and more cost-effective to build than traditional controllers.

According to W.P. Law, Inc. CFO Flip Law, smart irrigation controllers differ from traditional controllers in that they do not rely on a timed-schedule to run irrigation zones. Instead, the smart controllers utilize weather stations and soil moisture sensors to receive daily information on how much water has been lost, and then change the irrigation program accordingly.

Because smart irrigation controllers have proven to conserve water, they are mandated in many states.

“Smart Irrigation Controllers are one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to practice water conservation while also saving time and money,” said Law. “Customers have been able to save 20 to 50% of their irrigation water without the need to constantly adjust the controller.”
