Eliminate Overspray From Lawn Sprinklers

This week's Water Wise Tip looks at eliminating overspray from your lawn sprinklers at home.

# Check sprinklers for overspray onto adjacent pavement, walls, fences, decks and homes.

# Overspray will waste a lot of water and can cause severe property damage.

# One of the primary reasons homeowners replace fences is because of rotting fence posts. This rotting is primarily a result of the post's repeatedly getting wet and dry from sprinklers.

# You can save water and increase the life of your fence and other structures by eliminating overspray.
