    Did you know?

    The expo is the largest one-day distribution of smart irrigation controllers in the nation. Nearly 11,000 smart controllers have been distributed over the past 16 years, which translates into an approximate water savings of about 1.5 billion gallons. This is based on the average household water use of 12,000 gallons per month before installation of a smart controller.
