Wateringschedule.com Simplifies Savings

June 14, 2013

If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you’ve noticed we’re talking a lot about wateringschedule.com.  This is our newest development here at Orbit and is a free website that we hope will help people cut back on water usage and make their lawns look better.  What’s not to love about that?

Catch cups and sprinkler audits have been around a long time and are nothing revolutionary.  But in the past they required expensive and inaccurate devices.  After a sample was taken the user had to shuffle through confusing mountains of graphs and charts to determine what it all meant.  You almost needed a PhD in irrigation to make sense of it all.  But what we’ve done is taken all this complex information like Evapotranspiration (ET) rates, soil textures, climate data, etc.  We’ve worked out a number of equations that our website solves for you in seconds.  All we need is your zip code, soil type and the readouts from the catch cups.  The website is the easiest part–though the rest of the process is pretty simple too.


As we head into the warmer summer months, many are going to get a shock on their water bill.  So why not give wateringschedule.com and our catch cups a try?  Your grass will thank you, your wallet will thank you and our drought stricken world will thank you.

  1. I have the new H20-SIX Gear Drive Sprinkler. I love how it operates. Problem is I can’t figure out how it operates. It’s supposed to have so many options. I can do small, medium, large. Can’t figure out the spray patterns. When I move the top it only goes to three places but I can’t figure out what they are. What are all the little spikes on the top? Sorry, can someone just tell me how to adjust it? I’ve checked out the Orbit videos – no help at all. Sign me FRUSTRATED.

  3. Mike,

    All the mist kits should allow you to add extensions and/or hook them together. However, you will need to have sufficient water pressure to power all these kits. Call us at 1-800-299-5555 and we can help determine if you have enough pressure.
