Registration is closed but you are still invited to attend. Please note: all controller rebate vouchers have been allocated at this time.*

*There may be rebate vouchers available the day of the expo that can be used to purchase a controller at an Ewing location after the expo through March 18. However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to purchase the controller at the rebate price at the expo. The best time to attend will be between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at that time, we will have a better idea if we can accommodate your request.

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.
