It would be remarkable to water every day when it was most beneficial to water. Still, life happens, and water managers are often asked to ensure water sprinklers are not watering during specific days and times. HOA meetings, municipal restrictions, outdoor weddings, and sports tournaments are just a few of the many reasons sprinklers can water at all times of the day.
In the past, water managers used block days to ensure no water runs during these critical activities. However, now with strong municipal restrictions, it is more difficult to water. For example, when a city tells us, we can’t water after 10 am. Using the block days feature, if we block a day, no watering will occur. The same issue is true if the restriction is before 10 am and after 6 pm. These drought restrictions make it harder to water.
Time restrictions, a new feature of Jain Unity, make watering during strict restrictions due to drought easy. A time restriction can span any period from 1 minute to days, months, or years. In addition, you’ll can easily configure and set any recurring restrictions, with or without an end date, of repeating events such as mowing day, site maintenance or inspection days, holidays, municipal restrictions, interval watering, and others throughout the season.
During this session, you will learn:
