During July, Rain Bird will be conducting a sweepstakes on its Facebook page, awarding a new Rain Bird ESP-SMT smart control system to a fan each week in honor of Smart Irrigation Month.
Designed for residential and light commercial applications, the Rain Bird ESP-SMT uses accurate, weather-based control to save between 30-70 percent in water. During installation and set-up, users enter their ZIP code (or site location and elevation), sprinkler type, sun exposure, soil type and slope.
The ESP-SMT then combines this information with location-specific monthly historical weather data to create an optimum irrigation schedule. Each day, the system uses temperature and rainfall data to determine how much water is needed to maintain the optimum level of moisture in the soil. The ESP-SMT uses all these factors to decide whether to continue with the current irrigation schedule, suspend irrigation or adjust the schedule to apply more or less water.
To enter Rain Bird’s Smart Irrigation Month sweepstakes, participants must first “like” the company’s page on Facebook and then complete a brief form with their contact information. Rain Bird will randomly select and notify the winner of a new ESP-SMT each Monday, beginning July 11.
Weekly winners will be announced on Rain Bird’s Facebook page. The sweepstakes will end with the drawing of its final winner on August 1. Official sweepstakes rules are available on Rain Bird’s Facebook page, facebook.com/RainBirdCorp.
