The most popular lawn sprinklers have been around for decades.
The big question is, which one is the smartest?
But the answer can be a matter of taste, according to new research.
It’s the most popular battery-operated lawn sprinkling solution, the Green Solution, that offers superior performance, durability and cost, but also higher energy consumption than the competitors.
“It’s a pretty obvious winner, and you can see it in the price,” said Dan Lueck, senior vice president of product marketing for Green Solution.
Luecks team found that the Green solution can achieve up to 90 percent efficiency, while the competition can achieve less than half.
That makes it a more energy-efficient lawn sprinklor than most other lawn sprinklings, he said.
The Green Solution also has a more powerful motor, which reduces the amount of energy it requires to run and reduce the amount the water has to hold onto the grass, Lueks team found.
The sprinkler also has built-in energy monitoring features, which helps prevent problems with overheating.
The company also offers a free app that provides a comprehensive view of all its sprinkler systems and the results they’ve achieved.
The battery-free lawn sprinklers come in a variety of models, ranging from small, portable models to the big ones that can cover large lawns.
“This is a very different market from the one we had in mind when we started the company in 2000, when we focused on small-scale residential use,” Luecking said.
“With that, we were very cautious about how much our products would change over time.
Now, we can afford to do more.”
For example, Green Solution sells the $15 Blue Water, which has an 8-ounce capacity and a 1-inch spray nozzle.
But that model has a $50 price tag and a 3-year warranty.
The $30 Blue Water Plus has an additional 8-inch hose, a 1.5-inch nozzle and a $100 price tag.
But it comes with a $35 maintenance fee.
Lues team found the Blue Water’s battery-life was similar to its competitors’ at the same watering level, but its performance was better.
“If you can take a lawn sprinklar that is as energy efficient as the Blue One, then you’re doing something right,” Lues said.
But if you want to get the most performance out of your lawn sprinkliers, Lues says you need to look at the different models.
“There’s a lot of options out there,” he said, including the $20 Blue Water 2 and $30 Green Solution 2.
The lawn sprinkalers that Lue’s team tested were the most energy efficient.
The Blue Water 3, which can handle a 3.5 gallon lawn and up to 9.5 gallons of water, has an overall energy efficiency of 97 percent, according the company.
But the Green Water has a much higher efficiency rating of 99 percent.
That’s compared to the Blue one’s 93 percent, Lueds team found, which is a better score than some of the other competitors.
Green Solution has an energy efficiency rating that’s higher than the Blue 2’s, but it’s lower than the Green One’s, Luing said.
That suggests the company is more focused on making sure its sprinklers can be energy efficient at all times.
Green solutions also offer a free, easy-to-use app that can provide a complete view of its sprinklage systems and can even display a graph that gives you an idea of how much energy the sprinkler is using.
The app includes the same functionality as the Green 1 app, but with a more detailed view of how the sprinklers are using the water.
That helps you decide if you’d rather save energy or use more energy, Lucecks team says.
Luedcks says his team tested the lawn sprinkals of three different models and that the Blue, Green and Blue 2 all outperformed all three.
The two Blue solutions were the best at doing the job, LUEcks team said.
They were also the most durable and most efficient at watering lawns, the Blue 1 said.
Green Solutions also offers different models for different needs.
The Smart Water, for example, has a battery that can recharge in under 30 minutes and a rechargeable micro-USB charging cable.
The Lawn Sprinkler, for its part, has two charging ports and a USB charging cable that can also be used for charging an iPhone, a tablet, a smartphone or an Xbox 360 controller, the company said.
Luceck said his team wanted to make sure the sprinkling solutions they tested were “all the right products for the right users.”
“They’re all designed to do what they’re supposed to do,” he added.
LUEck’s team also tested the Green, Blue and Blue Water models and found that Green Solutions’s models performed best. “The
