Sprinklers Take a Holiday

Plants need much less water during the cool, rainy season. It’s a great opportunity to cut your water bill!

Follow these winter tips to save money, save water and comply with Pasadena’s water shortage ordinance:

Effective Nov. 1, set your irrigation system to run just once a week – on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday only.

Daylight Saving Time ended Nov. 7, so take this opportunity to re-set your sprinklers to run before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m. If you’re not sure how, watch PWP’s video series at
www.YouTube.com/PasadenaWaterPower for tips on adjusting your sprinkler controller.

Remember that sprinklers are not permitted on rainy days in Pasadena! Sign up for free rain alerts by email or text from
www.weather.com or install a smart irrigation controller to automatically shut off sprinklers when it rains. PWP offers a $150 rebate on smart controllers at www.cityofpasadena.net/savewater.
