Benefits of the Spray-to-Drip Retrofit Kit

Studies show that drip irrigation systems are very water-efficient, using 30 to 50% less water* than conventional watering methods, such as sprinklers. Retrofitting your residential irrigation system has numerous benefits.

  • Easy installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Fewer weeds
  • Water directly reaches the root zone
  • Allows water to seep slowly into soil
  • Reduces water waste and run-off
  • Reduces water loss due to evaporation

*Water efficiency and potential savings are contingent on pre-existing conditions, irrigation system efficiency and other factors pertaining to customer's proper use of the Spray-to-Drip Retrofit Kit. PWP does not guarantee reduced water bills.
