W.I.S.E. Guys Program
Do you wonder how efficient your irrigation system is? Do you think you could be watering too much? Ever wanted advice from a licensed irrigation professional? The W.I.S.E. Guys program can help.
W.I.S.E. Guys is a conservation program offered by the Tarrant Regional Water District to residential water customers in North Richland Hills and other communities. The program provides eligible water customers with a free check of their irrigation system and tips on how to operate it more efficiently. Limit one evaluation per address.
This program has the ability to conserve millions of gallons of water each year, which helps the city to meet its water conservation goals. There is no cost to the city or the customer for participating in this program.
How does the program work? A residential customer of the city will complete a short questionnaire to determine if their irrigation system meets the requirements for a free evaluation. If the system meets the requirements, the evaluation will be assigned to a professional W.I.S.E Guys contractor. The contractor will contact the customer within seven days to schedule an evaluation. The W.I.S.E Guys contractor will evaluate the irrigation system and make recommendations to the customer for improvement to the performance and scheduling of the system to eliminate waste and save money on their water bills.
Who performs the system evaluation? Each evaluation is assigned to an approved W.I.S.E. Guys contractor who is a Licensed Irrigator in the State of Texas and has attended the required training for the W.I.S.E. Guys program. These professionals are well trained in proper irrigation design and installation and are more than capable of evaluating, designing, repairing and installing irrigation systems.
Will the contractor fix existing problems with the irrigation system? No, the contractor will not make repairs to the system. The service is an evaluation only. The W.I.S.E. Guys contractor will make the recommended adjustments to the system controller only if the customer allows such adjustments. In many instances the adjustment to the system controller is the first step to water conservation and lower water bills.
The homeowner is under no obligation to hire the W.I.S.E. Guys contractor to repair the problems found within their system, however, up to 80% are requesting immediate repairs to help them save water right away.
