How many times have you driven down the street while it’s pouring rain and one of your neighbors or a business has its sprinkler system on? You probably think, “What a waste of water!” Many people don’t know how to adjust the timer on their sprinkler system, or may not realize it’s on. With an automatic rain sensor shut-off device, those situations can be avoided.
With a shut-off device, you can save up to 20-percent on your water bill! When rain or sufficient moisture is detected, the controller automatically shuts off your system resulting in savings.
To help offset the cost of installing a rain sensor shut-off device for your sprinkler system, the Metropolitan Utilities District offers a $50 credit. If you are a current District water customer, simply have an automatic rain sensor shut-off device installed by a licensed lawn sprinkler contractor and download the rebate form on our website. Follow the mailing instructions and within five to six weeks you will see a $50 credit on your M.U.D. bill.
