TAMPA, FL (March 6, 2015) –Tampa residents and property owners are reminded to check the timer settings on their irrigation system controllers this weekend when changing from Eastern Standard to Daylight Saving Time. When making time changes, residents should also check their programs to make sure they are irrigating only on their assigned days and times.  Up-to-date information on the irrigation schedule in effect for Tampa can be found online at TampaGov.net/WaterRestrictions, at MyWateringDay.com or by calling Tampa's automated Water Restrictions Hotline at (813) 274-8032. 

While changing their irrigation controller settings, residents may want to take the opportunity to ensure the battery backups on their controllers and the required rain sensing device on their automatic irrigation system are operating properly.  Tampa Water customers without a rain sensor can order one free of charge at tampagov.net/savewater or by calling (813) 274-8121 option #5.

Information on inspecting irrigation components, including a rain sensor checkup, is available online at www.TampaGov.net/SaveWater
