Here’s the info for the MFG testing info:January 30, 2015 at 5:25 pm #35427
Just this morning, I was reading mail from SoCal Edison about rebates for having a Water-Based Irrigation Controller and I thought to myself, “too bad I bought my opensprinkler so long ago, I missed out on a rebate!” And then looked further and found the EPA list.
Ray, you should get yourself on that list!January 30, 2015 at 5:27 pm #35428February 2, 2015 at 2:38 pm #35448
OK, I’ve received several requests to get OpenSprinkler WaterSense certified. I will be looking into it. Thanks for the suggestion.August 16, 2015 at 4:15 pm #39894
I will be converting my front yard into a drought tolerant landscape and will be applying for a rebate through my city for the work. In order to qualify for the rebate, my city (Sacramento, CA) is requiring applicants to use EPA WaterSense controllers. So this will effectively require me to retire my OSPi. Glad you’re on it. Hope it pulls through.June 27, 2019 at 7:36 pm #61406
I couldn’t find information on the current status of WaterSense certification. Is this available now?July 1, 2019 at 5:47 pm #61466
It looks like OpenSprinkler still isn’t on the EPA WaterSense list. I contacted the WaterSense department and asked if there is anything we can do to get OS added although I haven’t received a reply yet. Does anyone know what needs to be done to get OS EPA WaterSense approved?July 9, 2019 at 2:54 pm #61567
We are almost ready to release the ETo adjustment method and once that’s done, we will proceed to apply for WaterSense certificate.July 9, 2019 at 3:26 pm #61573
That’s great! Glad to hear it’s almost ready. Sounds like the Zimmerman method will be replaced with a new adjustment method that is more compliant with WaterSense?July 9, 2019 at 5:08 pm #61593
According to our readings of the WaterSense documents, it seems implementing ET is necessary. We do have an initial ET implementation in the opensprinkler-weather github repository. We are doing some final testing right now and hoping to release it as soon as possible.
On a related note, I still don’t quite understand how some of the ‘dumb’ (i.e. none Internet connected) controllers are WaterSense certified, maybe they use just historic ET data without real-time weather data. Any ideas?March 28, 2022 at 5:08 pm #72421
Hi all! Just bought my first OpenSprinkler to replace a CyberRain XCI Pro that I bought nearly 10 years ago that has ZERO support.
I went to look at the EPA’s WaterSense product list and OpenSprinkler still isn’t on there. I see discussions on this forum from 2015 through 2019…but nothing in almost 3 years.
What can I do to help get OpenSprinkler approved for the WaterSense list?
