During Sprinkler Spruce Up Month, it’s time to learn how to inspect, connect, direct and select your way to more efficient sprinkler system use to save water and money this summer.

Irrigation system use can make up as much as 50-70% of your summer water usage, resulting in high bills and wasted water. Fort Worth Water offers classes and tools to help residents use their system efficiently.

  • Can’t get to a class? All of the irrigation system content is available in eight Irrigation System Videos to view at your convenience.
  • Twice a week is the maximum number of days allowed for irrigation system use — you may not need to water as frequently. Sign up for the Weekly Watering Advice for a text or email with localized watering recommendations for each week. Most weeks your yard will not need a full inch of water.
  • Use the Irrigation Calculator Tool to estimate how much water you use each time you run your system.
  • Visit the EPA WaterSense Sprinkler Spruce Up website to learn more about proper irrigation system maintenance.
