Soil Moisture Sensors

Soil moisture sensor controllers are placed below ground in the root zones of lawns and landscapes to determine if and how long to water. They are available as stand-alone controllers or add-on devices to existing controllers. They have been shown to reduce outdoor water use by up to 70% without sacrificing the quality or health of your landscape.

Irrigation supply houses throughout Orange County (such as Ewing Irrigation, Site One, and Imperial Sprinkler Supply) carry rebate-eligible controllers.

Residential Rebate Level: Up to $80, or more in select areas, for properties less than one acre; OR $35 per station for properties at least one acre or greater.

Rebates are subject to availability and retail water agency participation.
