Unfortunately, there are no more rebate vouchers for the Rain Bird ESP-SMTe smart irrigation controller available. You are still invited to attend the event; however, there is no guarantee that you will be able to purchase the controller at the rebate price on the day of the expo. If quantities allow, you might be able to receive a rebate voucher at the expo to purchase the controller at a Ewing location through March 19.


Up to 70% of residential water use is outdoors. Installed, programmed correctly and maintained, these state-of-the-art EPA WaterSense-labeled controllers can deliver water savings of at least 20% more than traditional controllers.

The Rain Bird ESP-SMTe model is a four-station outdoor controller and is easily expandable to 22 stations. Three-station expansion modules are available at the event for $15 per module (limit three) plus tax (retail value $53.55). Ewing discounts the price offered to SRP from $314.15 to $125 for the controller and from $53.55 to $25 for the module. Customer is responsible for the sales tax on the discounted prices.

Ewing will accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and checks as payment at the event.

Estimated customer cost with tax on discounted prices:

  • Controller only: $57.88
  • Controller and one module: $74.45
  • Controller and two modules: $91.03
  • Controller and three modules: $107.60

Attendees can also receive a water-saving Niagara showerhead while supplies last. The discount is limited to the first 800 SRP customers who register for and attend the expo.


If you plan to purchase a smart irrigation controller, please read the Smart Irrigation Pre-Installation Guide and fill out the Pre-Installation Worksheet before attending. This will help you gauge how many expansion modules, if any, you will need.


The expo features two classes:

  • Smart Irrigation Controller: This 50-minute class will teach you about the ESP-SMTe, which promotes water efficiency by using historical weather data along with onsite rainfall and temperature information to determine daily watering run times.
  • Plant Care and Maintenance for Xeriscapes: What's the proper plant care that will keep your landscape beautiful, and looking its best throughout the year? Learn how to achieve success with proper watering, pruning, fertilizing, planting, tree staking and more. The bonus? You'll save time and water while creating a sustainable landscape that will attract birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
