The Toro Company announced on July 14 the launch of a new website focused on providing a resource to educate homeowners and businesses about available options to save water. The launch of WaterSmart.Toro.com coincides with Smart Irrigation Month, which was established by the Irrigation Association to draw attention to water-saving irrigation innovation and has gained recognition throughout the United States.
The site is centered on the concept that homeowners and businesses can achieve significant water savings without having to sacrifice the green spaces they enjoy. Many faced with escalating watering rates and increased restrictions may believe that taking drastic and sometimes expensive measures to remove their lawns is one of their only options to comply with mandates and regulations.
“Being a California-based business, we are sensitive to the pressures homeowners and businesses are facing when it comes to maintaining their lawn and landscape,” said Burnett Jones, Toro marketing manager for residential and commercial irrigation. “We are launching this site in an effort to let people know that there are several options available, and that sprinkler technology has made significant advancements in recent years to achieve water savings. In fact, Toro has several products that can save consumers up to 30 percent or more on outdoor water use.”
The website provides tips and information about water savings, news on water and drought issues, and introduces Toro’s line of innovative WaterSmart products designed to effectively maintain landscapes while using water responsibly. When installed, these products save a significant amount of water when compared to the outdated sprinkler technology from just a few years ago.
After visiting the site and weighing available options, homeowners and businesses that want to further explore upgrading or adding new water-saving sprinkler technology can locate a retailer, purchase online, or go to WaterSmart.Toro.com to help them locate a contractor in their area who will do the installation work for them.
Similar to the improvements in indoor water use brought by high-efficiency shower heads and low-flush toilets, the technology and innovation has been developed to significantly save on outdoor water use without having to sacrifice landscapes and green spaces. With proper sprinkler maintenance and a few upgrades, homeowners and businesses can do their part.
