From our decades of hands-on experience, we understand landscaping is living art, and irrigation is how you keep that art blooming and green. Irrigating with greywater is no different in that regard.
Any irrigation system starts with a controller capable of handling the amount of valves needed for your landscape’s microclimates, with multiple programs to accommodate different environmental demands.
ReWater’s highly advanced controllers have 156 functions operated by a simple dial with intuitive labeling. They can also operate conventional irrigation methods, such as sprinklers and rotors. There’s no need to purchase two controllers even if your landscape will utilize both conventional methods and underground greywater drip.
ReWater formerly held C27 Landscape Contractor’s License #798547 and provided full landscape installation services to customers who purchased our systems.
Now, installation of a ReWater system is available anywhere in the world through a local licensed plumber for the filter portion and a local licensed landscaper versed in drip irrigation for the irrigation portion.
We encourage your professionals to watch ReWater’s technical support videos and to read our Owner’s Manual and Controller User’s Guide, available in English and Spanish. And technical support is available via phone, email, and text to all clients and their professionals Monday – Friday, year-round.
Underground drip irrigation is well documented to save at least 30% and up to 60% on water use. This precise method of irrigation puts water at the root zones of only the plants you want to irrigate, regardless of wind. This approach reduces misapplied water and eliminates run-off, the leading cause of water waste and of water pollution. It also reduces weed growth.
Another advantage to underground drip is it remains safe from pedestrian traffic, rakes and other landscape maintenance tools, vandalism, and other common causes of damage to both sprinklers and surface drip tubing. Save a fortune in maintenance costs!
To defeat root intrusion, our emitters have an air-gap between the water orifice and the screen interface that separates the soil from the inside of the emitter. When irrigation stops, the resulting air-gap blocks roots from growing up into the orifice. The screen lets the roots come inside the emitter body to feed on the water and nutrients, but once inside the emitter, the roots find their food, and become aqueous to better absorb the moisture.
This process was documented by the Center for Irrigation Technology at CSU Fresno, as required by the California greywater code (Chapter 15 of the California Plumbing Code). Other emitters rely on toxic chemicals or expensive maintenance to keep working over the long haul.
If another manufacturer says their emitters work underground with greywater, ask them to show you a system that worked underground with greywater over several years. They will then show you emitters that use municipally reclaimed wastewater, which is not greywater.
