The Smart Water System Program has returned!

Fort Collins Utilities is looking for homeowners who want a smarter way to maintain a healthy landscape. The system is easily monitored from your smartphone and has a game-changing technology that alerts you and shuts off the zone when it detects a leak or a break. Your smart home deserves a smart yard. Eligible water utility customers are responsible for the cost of installation, but we’ve made that easy, too. 

Sign up to receive the Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller and Wireless Flow Meter. The complete Rachio Smart Water System (a $700+ value) is yours when you enroll in the program and schedule a discounted $170 professional installation.

Smart Water System includes:

  • Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller – Free
  • Weatherproof Outdoor Enclosure – Free
  • Wireless Flow Meter – Free
  • Required Pipe Fittings – Free
  • Professional Install – $170

Sign up below to select your Rachio 3 Smart Irrigation Controller and Wireless Flow Meter installation appointment.  Due to the irrigation busy season, installation dates are being scheduled approximately two weeks in advance.
