IrriGreen Saves Water in CIT Test, Proves Labor Savings in the Field

We talk a lot about the capabilities of the IrriGreen Genius® Irrigation System. We want people to know that it can do a better job of watering lawns while using much less water. And, of course, it cuts down on install time and materials thanks to its one head per zone layout.

When something sounds too good to be true, people can be skeptical.

After all, every company says their product is better. But with IrriGreen, you don’t have to just take our word for it.

Thanks to a report from the Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT), we have the results of independent testing by industry experts that show IrriGreen works.

Good Results. Less Water.

The Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) recently compared the Genius® system against traditional irrigation equipment. CIT tested IrriGreen with one Genius computerized smart head per irrigation zone against conventional systems with six to nine mechanical rotors or spray heads per zone.


The results speak for themselves. The IrriGreen system produced the same increase in soil moisture while using 40% less water.

Results like that are why the IrriGreen was the only irrigation system selected by Lawn and Landscape magazine as a winner of a “Twenty for 2016” new product award.

“For more than three decades, the irrigation industry has counted on the soil and water scientists at CIT to answer a basic question about irrigation technology: does it work?” said Gary Klinefelter, president, IrriGreen, Inc. “In CIT tests, IrriGreen matched the irrigation performance of mechanical systems and did so with 40 percent less water.”

Save Time. Save Money.

And what about saving time and labor costs for installation? For that, we turn to another group of experts: contractors who have installed an IrriGreen system.

“We get IrriGreen done so much faster, cutting man-hours by as much as two-thirds,” says Jarod Roberts of Westside Sprinkler in Colorado. “My labor costs run about 60 percent lower.”
