Tackle Irrigation System Changes Now

Nathan Riggs

October and November are the ideals months of the year to make some or all of your irrigation system a thing of the past or upgrade it to boost efficiency.

For many people, the idea of change can be unsettling, scary or down right harrowing. However, sometimes change can be a good thing and bring some really pleasant results — especially when the change applies to your irrigation system.

October and November are the ideals months of the year to make some or all of your irrigation system a thing of the past or upgrade it to boost efficiency. Also, temperatures are milder this time of year and your landscape doesn’t have the unquenchable thirst for water it did in the summer.

The Residential Irrigation Design Rebate can provide you with cash for putting an end to individual irrigation zones, converting spray irrigation to drip irrigation in beds, installing (not replacing) a master valve, converting spray heads in grass zones to pressure-reducing heads, or even retiring your entire irrigation system.

The process is simple:

  • Schedule a conservation consultation by calling 210-704-7283 or email consult@saws.org and receive a personalized report with a rebate estimate at the end of the consultation.
  • Complete irrigation system changes within 12 months of your first consultation.
  • Schedule a final inspection and a conservation consultant will come to your home to review the changes you’ve made and complete the final rebate agreement. Note: If you finish your system changes and schedule your final inspection within 90 days of the first consultation, you’ll get a 10 percent bonus on all rebates earned.
  • Two to six weeks after the final inspection and approval, you’ll receive your irrigation rebate check from SAWS.

Don’t get hung up on just irrigation — you can also remove 200 square feet of grass and replace it with drought-tolerant plants or a patioscape living area, consider the Landscape and Patioscape Coupon programs as well. The next application window for the landscape and patioscape coupons opens in March 2020.
