SAN MARCOS, Calif. – Across the nation, state legislatures and regulatory agencies are increasingly mandating the use of pressure-regulated irrigation products to maximize water-use efficiency.
To meet these stringent new requirements for water conservation, irrigation product manufacturer Hunter Industries offers a full suite of pressure-regulated Pro-Spray spray bodies.
Several states have introduced pressure regulation requirements for irrigation spray bodies offered for sale that comply with the water efficiency and performance criteria of the EPA WaterSense Specification for Spray Sprinkler Bodies:
- Vermont: Sold on or after July 1, 2020
- California: Manufactured on or after Oct. 1, 2020
- Colorado: Sold on or after Jan. 1, 2021
- Hawaii: Sold on or after Jan. 1, 2021
- Maine: Sold on or after Jan. 1, 2021
- Washington: Manufactured on or after Jan. 1, 2021
To help comply with these mandates, Pro-Spray PRS30 and PRS40 spray bodies from Hunter Industries have built-in pressure regulation technology that saves up to 30% more water compared to systems without pressure regulation. Brown and gray caps make the products quick and easy to identify for compliance.
Pressure-regulated Pro-Spray PRS30 and PRS40 spray sprinklers provide a range of benefits, including the same body across all models for easy retrofits, a co-molded wiper seal for leak-free operation even with a loose cap and the optional FloGuard feature for additional water savings in the event of a missing nozzle.
“We are all responsible for using water efficiently while supporting the development of green infrastructure. We’re proud to provide the most advanced and comprehensive water-saving solution in the landscape irrigation industry,” said Kelsey Jacquard, senior product manager.
