Local residents can save both water and money by getting a smart sprinkler controller that can automatically delay watering during rain in Santa Clarita from a local solar company.
HomeLink Pros Solar Founder Mike Terry recently drove through his neighborhood while it was raining and noticed that three of his neighbors still had their sprinklers running.
“I live in a neighborhood in the year 2019 — it’s modern times. We have technology for things,” Terry said. “It’s raining and the sprinklers are on, and the sprinkler is pouring money onto the grass. It takes water out of the reservoir. A lot of times we’re not careful about water when it’s raining… That’s water that we’re going to need later.”
The Santa Clarita community isn’t a stranger to resorting to extreme water conservation efforts as a result of the years-long California drought, and because an increase in rain recently has helped the water supply be replenished, it’s time to prepare for any potential droughts in the future, according to Terry.
“Cities around the world are running out of water and having to (take) extreme measures, where if they did something (sooner) to save water, they wouldn’t have been in that position,” he said.

HomeLink Pros Solar’s “smart” sprinkler controller connects to the internet to detect rain in the weather forecasts, and automatically delays the system so the homeowner doesn’t have to worry about it, according to Terry.
Additionally, the controller connects with the homeowner’s smartphone, giving them the chance to easily change watering schedules manually too.
“So much water is wasted,” Terry said. “This device lets you customize your watering schedule really easily without having to go into the garage and move the ladder and the pile of old clothes and all that. You just do it from your phone, and it’s really easy.”
After their KHTS Radio appearance on May 16, Terry said HomeLink Pros Solar gave three free smart sprinkler controllers to the first three people to make an appointment for a free, no-obligation solar power consultation, adding that changing to solar energy helps save water as well.
“Ninety percent of the electricity that’s made in America needs water to be made,” he explained. “You take some kind of natural resource like coal or natural gas, you set it on fire, you pour fresh water on it, the water turns a steam turbine and then there’s a cooling process and all this. So we use more water to make electricity in America than we use for farming and houses combined.”
For those residents looking for a solar company, Santa Clarita homeowners can change from standard electricity to solar power for no out-of-pocket costs with HomeLink Pros Solar, according to Mandy Rami, vice president of sales.
“Currently you don’t have to have any money out of pocket, no money down,” she said. “You’re not writing a check to the solar company. All you’re doing is switching from your current utility providers to clean energy that you’re making on your roof, where it’s not having to travel from far.”
Terry added, “Our jobs are actually really easy, because once we sit with someone and show them how they’re buying electricity now, and then we show them what it looks like to buy it through solar, they go, ‘Wow, this kind of almost seems too good. What’s the catch?’ And I go, ‘The catch is, you’ve got to sit with us for like an hour. And then everything else from there, we take care of.”
