Water: Our Most Precious Resource

World in the Hand Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few years, you know that Southern California is in the midst of a severe drought. As residents of this beautiful state we must do our part to conserve and protect this most precious resource. Southern California is an oasis in the middle of the desert. Beautiful landscapes bring life and color to our lives. Proper irrigation is key to keeping these landscapes green.

Both OCsprinklerrepair.com and it’s sister site LAsprinklerrepair.com are dedicated to keeping us green by providing up to date news, information and tips to help Southern Californians conserve. We also offer services such as “smart” controller installation, sprinkler head retrofitting, and irrigation system tuning that will help our customers do their part in conserving water.

With over 3,000,000 residents in Orange County alone, just imagine what we could do if every one of us cut our water consumption by just 5%. What if we could cut it by 10% or even 15%. We believe that through education, this is possible. The great majority of water is wasted outdoors. Broken lines, poorly adjusted sprinkler heads, and over-watering are all major culprits. We can help maintain your irrigation system in perfect working condition so that your water consumption is kept to a minimum, while still maintaining a healthy landscape.

It is our hope that we become your source for news, tips, and information when it comes to outdoor conservation, and the first number you call when you need help with your irrigation system. Please don’t hesitate in giving us a call. OCsprinklerrepair.com is owned and operated by WCGM, Inc., License # 608079. You can reach us at (800) 339-2102 or by email at info @ wcgminc.com. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Let’s make Orange County a “green” place to live.
