San Diego, CA - No More Geysers, producer of an automatic shutoff sprinkler riser for landscape irrigation, has released the final report on a demonstration test project carried out to show the effectiveness of the No More Geysers Riser as a water saving device. The report documents an automatic shutoff sprinkler riser field-monitoring project conducted in the landscaped areas surrounding an office building parking complex in Oceanside, California. The project was implemented under a contract between the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. The project was carried out by No More Geysers LLC with support from the property owner and the property management company.
The No More Geysers automatic shutoff device conserved a total of 21,280 gallons of water and stopped water flowing from eleven broken sprinkler risers during the course of the project. This equates to nearly thirty-nine percent of the water used at the site during the period. A total of twenty-four risers broke during the course of the project, eleven of them had No More Geysers valves installed and thirteen did not. Based on the differences in the rates of water usage, the project managers estimate the broken risers in the irrigation zones without No More Geysers valves installed went undiscovered for between three and eighteen days.
The importance of saving water used in landscape irrigation has been well documented. About 30 percent of the water used by the average American household is devoted to outdoor water use. In more arid parts of the country like Southern California, homeowners use as much as 70 percent of their water outdoors. Experts estimate that up to 50 percent of landscape water use goes to waste due to evaporation, wind, or runoff caused by overwatering or broken irrigation systems.
