“I prefer the Rain Bird ESP-Modular controllers. It’s an easy, simple and economic option. They bring me peace of mind because they’re efficient, reliable, high quality and have a great cost-benefit. My only choice for the last 15 years.”

“As a water manager whose business is based on technology, I strongly recommend other water managers and contractors think scalability, before bells and whistles when choosing a system. Water conservation is based on the profitability of us, which means we need to be able to remotely manage hundreds of controllers. Not dozens of fancy systems. Also, there’s not a single system for every application. I prefer ET Water, Tucor, Hunter and Calsense. Why? I save water and these systems assist. Plus, I’m profitable.”
