PETALUMA, Calif – HydroPoint Data Systems WeatherTRAK Smart Water Manager Solution, including all models of WeatherTRAK ET Pro2 and WeatherTRAK LC weather-based irrigation controllers, have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense label by meeting the program’s water-efficiency and performance criteria.

“The EPA’s WaterSense label elevates the standard of excellence and reliability for water efficient products and we are pleased the smart irrigation category is a part of the WaterSense program,” said Christopher Spain, HydroPoint CEO and president.

“Over the past 10 years, WeatherTRAK solutions have delivered measurable savings with immediate ROI for our customers across the country. We are excited to add the EPA WaterSense label to WeatherTRAK Smart Water Management Solutions to accelerate adoption of smart irrigation and maximize water savings. Current WeatherTRAK customers will save more than 20 billion gallons of water in 2012 alone, creating a significant and sustainable impact on future water supply.”

The WeatherTRAK ET Pro2 and WeatherTRAK LC smart irrigation controllers adjust irrigation as landscape water requirements or local weather conditions change using a proprietary scheduling engine that scientifically calculates irrigation schedules using site-specific parameters, such as plant, soil and sprinkler type and daily ET Everywhere wireless weather data, with validated accuracy down to one square kilometer.

The WeatherTRAK Smart Water Manager Solutions combine these proven controllers with WeatherTRAK Central, the industry’s most advanced cloud-based central control, to give landscape maintainers and property managers visibility into multiple sites and real-time oversight, diagnostics, reporting and remote control.
