“We recommend Maxicom2® to our clients
because the system is the most efficient and
effective method for controlling individual
zones within complex irrigation systems.
Maxicom2 analyzes weather conditions
from the previous 24 hours and adjusts the
amount of water needed for the conditions
and for each specific zone. Our clients reap
the benefits – lower costs for labor and water,
plus healthier plants and turf.”
