HydroPoint: Verona Walk Case Study
When Stahlman-England entered the picture, they assessed the situation, and turned to Baseline technology to help them embark on an irrigation overhaul.
They made plans for new communication wire, grounding, and surge protection and replaced the older Hunter IDS system with 18 Baseline 3200 controllers and central web-based software. They gave each residential and multi-family lot an individual control valve that was connected via Baseline Decoders.
“A specialized consultant audited the community and prepared a full analysis recommending the Baseline system,” said Steve Hall, Managing Partner and Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Stahlman-England. “I see the value-added, and the ease of use. Not just in my ability to use Baseline, but for everyone in our firm, from service techs to coordinators at the office.”
These upgrades meant that the irrigation system went from a disconnected, aging series of individual stations to one online system, fully equipped for remote management. Landscape and irrigation managers can now remotely access the watering schedule, see watering reports, and get immediate high-flow alerts as soon as a potential issue occurs.
The Verona Walk HOA was so happy with the results that they requested Stahlman-England to provide the ongoing maintenance as well. Now they have technicians onsite routinely, providing visual inspections and remedying work orders as required.
“To date, the system has been simple to install and easy to use. It’s simply an impressive product with a great support team, and is very easy for the end user,” said Hall.
As Verona Walk’s needs change and Stahlman-England stays onsite consulting, they plan to continue making the irrigation system as modern, flexible, and efficient as possible.
