This web tool provides you with the ability to test different types of irrigation technologies in a virtual environment.
Clicking on each of the examples below to see a picture and description of each type of irrigation.
Uses an automatic timer and schedules irrigation for specific times and days
Operation of residential irrigation controllers
Uses an automatic timer with a rain sensor that will disable irrigation if sufficient rainfall occurs.
Residential irrigation system rainfall shutoff devices
Uses an automatic timer with a soil moisture sensor. The sensor measures soil moisture and reports to the controller if too wet; if too wet, irrigation does not occur.
Smart irrigation controllers: how do soil moisture sensor (SMS) irrigation controllers work?
Uses weather measurements to estimate evapotranspiration. The estimated evapotranspiration losses are used to determine an irrigation schedule.
