ProQual Landscaping, Horizon create efficient irrigation

Updated Feb 19, 2013

Working with their local Horizon Distributors rep and more than 4,000 new sprinkler nozzles, ProQual Landscaping of Tempe, Arizona, completed a large-scale irrigation upgrade at a Phoenix-area apartment complex that translated into a water savings of more than 20 percent.

“Our irrigation team went in to assess the situation, and we found a mismatched system,” says Scott Needham, general manager of ProQual, in a press release. “There were pressure problems and spotty coverage – some areas were green and others weren’t. The landscape just didn’t look good.”

ProQual’s irrigation technicians conducted a water audit and saw the need to replace the mismatched sprinklers with a consistent, efficient system. Needham approached Horizon with the challenge, and they decided to install the Toro Precision Series spray nozzles to try and solve the problem.

The Toro Precision Series spray nozzles are designed to distribute water more slowly and evenly at a 1 inch/hour precipitation rate. Using patented H2O chip technology — and no moving parts — each Precision Series spray nozzle creates one or more high-frequency oscillating streams to achieve the desired patterns. The Precision Series spray technology also appealed to ProQual because the nozzles are interchangeable and easily fit onto either male or female threaded sprinkler heads.
