|Personalized Rotors with Your Logo Build Your Brand & Reputation|
Stand out from the crowd with customized rotors with your logo
Silver Creek leads the industry with the only program that will customize rotary sprinklers with your logo on the top of every head.
|An example of a custom rotor with contractor's own logo |
This program has already proven to be very popular because it builds the contractors brand on every job site installed, leaving a lasting impression of quality. In this time of intense competition, the contractor that appears the strongest wins the job.
The benefits of customized rotors are significant:
- Get additional referrals and top-of-mind presence
- Differentiate yourself as a top-tier contractor
- Reinforces your total professional image across your web site, uniforms and trucks, creating a brand that is magnetic to customers, increasing sales.
K-Rain's rotor offers many benefits:
- Same adjustments as Hunter® PGP®.
- Retrofit compatible. No need to dig to replace worn or broken PGP® rotors. Just unscrew the internal and replace with RPS 75.
Getting personalized rotors that build business on every installation and every service call is easy. Ask us for details.

|Irrigation Water Audits Identify Upgrades for Lower Water Bills|
Don't ignore this business opportunity
As property owners and managers look for ways to cut back on monthly expenses, many are looking for ways to save on their irrigation water bills.
More than 75% of the buildings in the United States were built 20 years ago and present a huge opportunity for systems enhancement. Depending on location, landscape irrigation can use up to 40% of the water consumed by a site.
Understanding the opportunities for a more efficient system begins with a water audit. The purpose of an audit is to determine how much water is being used in landscape irrigation and how efficiently (or inefficiently) it is being applied.
Conducting an audit is not a simple task, and requires training to be done effectively. It's not as easy as verifying that the equipment is working properly. Calculations also need to be performed to determine the actual water usage versus what is a recommended usage based on local conditions.
A good audit will examine the system equipment (sprinklers, emitters, controls, pressure regulators, pump, etc.) plus it will include measurable performance testing of the system's overall efficiency. The auditor supplies the property owner with detailed results and recommendations on how to achieve greater water efficiency.
It's a worthwhile investment that can lead to significant savings. In the years ahead, water audits are likely to be commonplace throughout our industry. Get familiar with the process, get certified and get ahead of the competition!
