What is the CalWEP program?

In partnership with CalWEP and local water utilities, this program encourages homeowners to maximize watering efficiency through the distribution of Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controllers. 


What can you do with a Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller?

Rachio is a water, time, and money saving sprinkler controller that gives you access to sprinkler system settings and water usage information at your fingertips. Check on and run your sprinklers from anywhere in the world on your smartphone (or with 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, and it integrates with many other smart home products! With leading smart watering control and Weather Intelligence™, the Rachio controllers help you monitor and manage your outdoor water use.
