Big savings from Lawncheck and EtherRain
« on: September 02, 2010, 11:56:02 pm »
Howdy Jim,

Just got my first full water bill using Lawncheck and EtherRain.

$261.46, down from $429.53 the previous month. I feel like next year, with two more zones and some changes to my sprinkler heads, I can hit $200.00 per month. I think that's great, considering we have 50+ trees, wild flowers, flower beds and a pretty big sod area. Last month I also saved watering 33 times, due to Rain Brain.  

Also, since I changed routers and my firewall, I usually only get one or two connection errors a day. Some days, none. When I do get a connection error, it's only for 10 minutes or so, so I'm no danger of ever missing a cycle.

So I couldn't be happier with your program.

You've really done a great job. I look forward to seeing some improvements for next year. So I'll be shutting down in October. Looking forward to the snow now. I'll be checking in, though.

= me

Jim

Hi Gangee,

Thats fantastic.  Savings on your water bill of around $168 in one month?  Paid for your controller in one month?  Nice.  Hmm, is EtherRain/LawnCheck too inexpensive? 

Thanks for posting.

Cheers,
