Georgia Company CRI Irrigation Saves People Money and Conserves Water through Innovation and Technology
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 19, 2012 ) Cumming, Georgia As water rates in Georgia continue to increase, along with demand, and water itself becomes an increasingly precious commodity, water conservation has become an all important issue. As a result, water usage is a concern of several residential and commercial property owners, who are keen to reduce their water bills.
The droughts that have affected the mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions in recent years have had a major influence on how home owners think about outdoor watering, especially with the water
restrictions enforced during the summer months. In Atlanta, for example, there has been 20-30% increase in water conservation.
A faulty irrigation system can lead to excess water consumption (and higher water bills), as well as damaged plants and trees. While irrigation installation companies are seeing more and more clients asking them to manage the water used at their properties, clients at the same time want to know just how much it will cost them to get a more efficient irrigation system installed.
CRI Irrigation, a Cumming-based company whose employees have over 30 years experience providing Irrigation System Installation and maintenance services, including Atlanta Sprinkler System Installation & Repair services, specializes in conserving its customers water so that their water use is minimized, while providing innovative, efficiency-boosting solutions that over time pay for themselves. For Russ Hulsey, company President, whose aim is to focus clients on the conservation of water, and who believes it is our social duty to conserve water as much as possible, the design, installation and maintenance of systems constitute the most important part of conserving water, not just an ET controller or changing out some heads. A properly designed, installed and maintained irrigation system will conserve more water than just adding an ET Controller to a normal or average system.
Most recently,CRI irrigation has been turning to high-tech systems that control and monitor a clients irrigation system, regulating the amount of water used. Working in partnership with Aqua Management, the company provides customers with a solution accessed via cell phone or the Internet: perfect for people who travel frequently. The system emails or texts clients if there is a problem with a system, enabling them to shut it down at the touch of a button, wherever they are.
Thanks to this new technology, wasted water can be eliminated and actually save people even more water. Properties can be monitored from any place in the world, via computer or smart phone. Irrigation system performance can also be monitored with daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports, to ensure a system is operating at maximum efficiency.
As Russ Hulsey explains, we are offering complete irrigation management to our customers - and more and more of them are starting to understand the importance. We can now completely control our irrigation systems via the Internet or smartphone. We can monitor water use, reprogram controllers and even turn off irrigation if there is a leak. Our water resources in Georgia have been in very poor shape for over five years now, and people are just now starting to think about conserving. We still have a lot of work to do to inform of customers and future customers of the importance of proper irrigation practices. Technology is our best chance at improving water management.
One customer, to whom Russ Hulsey and CRI Irrigation have been providing all irrigation management services for over eight years, says: my system includes many zones, rain gauge, timer and pump. I have found their service to be courteous, reasonable and timely. In emergencies (non-operable pump), they have always been responsive, and the repairs made properly. Russell does a wonderful job!
