Irrigation systems have changed significantly over 20 years I’ve been working with them. With the introduction of drip lines garden watering has become allot more accurate and efficient, this has allowed for larger areas to be watered at the same time, often saving on the supply infrastructure needed.

A more recent upgrade that has hit the industry is the introduction of Wi-Fi controllers, these can connect to your home Wi-Fi and allow you to program and or run your watering system from your phone or computer anywhere in the world. They can even connect to local weather stations and adjust the watering program according the current and forecasted weather conditions.

The latest addition to the wireless controller market is Bluetooth tap timers/controllers. These allow you to program and run the controller from your phone without having to bend down and read the often hard to see screens on the timers under your garden taps.
