New video is online - irrigation control and well-water systems!

I recently produced a video for Miami-Dade Extension's Urban Conservation Unit.

The video discusses well-water irrigation systems controlled by a soil water sensor. When properly installed and calibrated, a soil water sensor system will prevent all unnecessary irrigation events. In South Florida, that can mean months of no irrigation during the rainy season.

Our experience in the field suggests that some well-water system pumps lose their prime and become inoperable when left at rest for too long.

To address this matter, the UCU has developed a "prime-saving" method. Check it out!
