HydroSense utilizes the experience acquired through years of commercial irrigation installations to competently and effectively provide solutions for new construction projects. From the initial concept and vision right through to substantial completion, HydroSense design deliverables include concise written specifications with professional AutoCAD drawings, installation details, and site plans for each system we are charged with. Our services are founded on the principles of efficiency and sustainability. Both our clients and the environment warrant this strict protocol.Read more: Irrigation Design Services
Our remote irrigation system management and monitoring service is aimed at reducing the maintenance costs of property managers and facility superintendents who are faced with increasing labour and resource costs to maintain their irrigation systems. With a dedicated manager assigned to your irrigation system operation, we have the ability to manage operations while your forces tend to other priorities.Read more: Remote System Monitoring
You wouldn't throw money in the trash, but when it comes to maintaining landscaping, many property owners are letting their money go down the drain. With rising water rates and increasing pressure from water purveyors and local municipalities to conserve water, there has never been a greater need to inspect every irrigation system under your care to see if they're working at their optimum. If you aren't performing a regular inspection of a property's sprinkler system, there's a good chance you're wasting water, and that means your money too.Read more: Irrigation System Performance Audits
Although over-watering has always been something people try to avoid, increasing water costs and water scarcity has brought this problem into the spotlight. No matter how efficient an irrigation controller’s watering schedule is it must take into account constantly changing weather conditions. Unlike traditional irrigation controllers, which are really just timers, intuitive or smart controllers work by monitoring and using information about site conditions (such as soil moisture, rain, wind, slope, soil, plant type, and more), and applying the right amount of water based on those factors—not too much and not too little—to maintain healthy growing conditions.Read more: Intuitive Irrigation Technology
Commercial office buildings in Canada are large consumers of water - using 19% of the total municipal water supply. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is the largest user of water in a typical commercial building, largely due to the operation of cooling towers. Other main sources of water consumption in commercial buildings are domestic use (toilets and sinks), and irrigation for landscaping.

Irrigation central control enables the programming, monitoring, and operation of multiple irrigation systems from one location. These advanced systems are designed to provide command and control over a single site or a set of sites from a single computer. Robust software platforms allows the water manager to set up programming to automatically control satellite controllers or two-wire decoders which operate the irrigation valves. It can monitor and adapt system operation and irrigation run times in response to conditions in the system or surrounding area, such as weather conditions, flow data, or pipe breaks. The system will also provide historical data to allow analysis and reporting of what ran when, how much water was used, and report on field problems.
Intuitive system management can ultimately result in water savings of 25-45% per year, depending on current management practices. As an additional source of savings, pipeline breaks are automatically detected and isolated, preventing excessive water loss.
By managing all irrigation programming from a PC, the user no longer needs to travel to each site to make adjustments at each controller. System shut-downs for maintenance occur quickly, allowing more effective use of time.
The system monitors current hydraulic conditions and takes action to prevent washout in the event of pipeline breaks. Detection and isolation of breaks occurs in minutes instead of hours.
The user no longer has to drive around to all the controllers to make programming changes.
