Understanding Soil Moisture Balance

May 12, 2021 12:00 pm

A user’s ability to see and understand their water usage outdoors engages them directly in its conservation while also contributing to more significant water resource savings for our communities and affordability.

The soil moisture balance page in Jain Unity shows users daily ET, how much moisture is in the soil (for every station).

In this session you will learn:

  • Where to locate the soil moisture information and how it works?
  • How to use soil moisture balance to be a better water manager?
  • How the schedule adjustments affect the MB graph?
  • How adjustments impact the graph and watering?

DJ Caldwell has been a Regional Sales Manager at Jain ETwater since 2016 for the Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and New Mexico territories. He came to ETwater from CPS Distributors, Inc. (Colorado Pump & Supply), the largest wholesale distributor of pump, irrigation, and landscape supplies in the Rocky Mountain Region, where he held positions in branch management and outside sales. Prior to that he was the Irrigation Division Manager for Environmental Designs Inc., a company specializing in landscape design, construction and maintenance based in Henderson, Colorado.

“Because they provided both a superior service to the landscape contractors and substantial water savings for our customers, ETwater became the preferred weather-based smart irrigation controllers when I was at Environmental Designs. Even throughout some of the hottest years on record in Colorado we were able to keep our customers’ properties looking great while still consistently saving them water with their web-based water management system. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of the ETwater team and working with my customers and distributors in the region to support their success in water management.”
