Key Features

Zilker Valve left, Zilker Bridge right.

It saves water

Control it from anywhere

It keeps an eye on the weather

Programs itself

Manages 30% of your water use

Measures in gallons or inches, not minutes

It keeps an eye on the weather

According to the EPA, a typical home uses 30% of its water outdoors, and half of that water is wasted by inefficient watering systems.

Based upon local weather data, Zilker can adjust water delivery to your lawn or garden.  If it’s been hot, Zilker will water more.  If it’s been raining, Zilker will water less.

Combine Zilker with any sprinkler you choose.

Zilker is smart

It can let you know if your hose has a leak.  It can warn you if you forgot to turn on the faucet. And it can confirm that, yes, the water did come on last night.

Zilker can apply one inch of water to your grass, or five gallons to your garden.

It can warn you if the batteries are low, or if freezing weather is approaching.

And Zilker presents clear graphs of your usage history, bringing new perspective to your water bill.

Water usage history

Technology

Zilker is small in size but packed with innovative technology.  A 915MHz radio (between the bridge and each valve) provides over 2.5 times the range of Wi-Fi.  A latching solenoid uses no power except to switch states, allowing two AA batteries to last up to a year.  And an axial turbine calculates flow rate, so that you can measure in gallons or inches, rather than minutes.

               How Zilker works

How much can Zilker save you?

Zilker is thousands of dollars less than an in-ground sprinkler system (yet provides features they cannot).

And, by using less water, Zilker will save cash continuously.

Many cities offer rebates toward the purchase of a water timer like Zilker. Check with your local utility for details.
