Water Wise Now will soon offer a series of online courses designed to help homeowners make water-saving changes themselves. Some courses will be free and others will be offered for a nominal fee. Water districts who support our online programs can offer free or discounted courses to their customers.
Online courses are a terrific way to pick up helpful information about irrigation systems because not everyone can attend public lectures offered in their water district and people often learn best in a safe and quiet place like home.
Courses Available Soon
- How to Prevent Runoff
- How and Why to Upgrade Your Sprinkler Nozzles
- Switch2Drip – How to convert spray sprinklers to drip irrigation
- Switch2Drip for Trees – A combination of our Switch2Drip program and UC Davis’ TRIC method
- Drip Irrigation
- How to Determine Your Soil Type
- How to Use Your Controller
Features of our online courses
A course is comprised of several lessons. Each lesson has a quiz attached to it. Our lessons are highly visual and each has a specific goal for the student. Courses come with time estimates for better planning.
If you’re a water district, you can choose which courses are available to your customers, we can provide reporting on course completion, and we can translate courses into Spanish if requested.
Where our course materials come from
All of our courses are written and designed by Water Wise Now’s team—a licensed landscape contractor and landscape designers. Our experience working with these methods, how to do things the right way, and helping homeowners through these projects informs the course content.
