Rachio is a water, time, and money saving sprinkler controller that gives you access to sprinkler system settings and information at your fingertips. Check on and run your sprinklers from anywhere in the world on your cell phone or our web app. Rachio is so intelligent that it skips waterings when you have plenty of moisture in your soil. It automates the amount of water your vegetation needs to stay healthy and green.

SoCal WaterSmart Program

What can be expected when my controller comes?

A water auditor will come to your home to review your sprinkler system and give you feedback on how you can setup the Rachio controller in each zone to save the most money while still giving you the best water for each.

Each user will receive a 16-zone controller (the largest option we have) that will be hand-delivered by the water auditor the day of the scheduled audit. The Rachio controller will be the new brains behind your pre-existing irrigation system. In short, you will be replacing your current controller with a much smarter one! (Note that this will NOT include installation of any piping, sprinkler heads, hoses, or additional wiring).

Do I pay for anything?

If a co-pay is required for your water district, the full amount is due upon the delivery of your controller during this appointment.

You have the rare opportunity of receiving a Discounted Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller (which includes software, as well as web and mobile apps) with no monthly or annual fees to worry about!
