I am not very technically savvy, so I needed a guide to help me decide how to run my sprinkler system to conserve water this year. This app showed me what to do and it has great pictures, which helps because I am a visual learner. Plus it taught me about how the whole system operates (in the basics section). Now it's time to tackle lowering that sprinkler head we keep mowing off! It'll be great to have the guide right with us when we go to get the parts we need, and then again when we are working on the repairs.
Very useful application.
This year when we turned our sprinkler system on, I found we had a leaking sprinkler valve. Instead of calling a sprinkler contractor I decided I would use the iScaper app and give it a try on my own. I used the step by step instructions in replacing a sprinkler valve. I never knew what a quick fix coupling was until I used one to do the valve replacement. Everything is working great and I know I saved money by not calling a contractor. Great app! Lots of information and the photos are a nice addition.
Very educational app
Great app and helpful for those not familiar with their sprinkler. I am a licensed irrigator and would like to see a section with like a pressure loss calculator, etc. I like it.
