The NORMA group develops a digital water timer

NORMA Group has developed a new digital water timer. Raindrip brand digital water timer helps automatic irrigation systems save water when used instead of manual watering. Especially in combination with a drip irrigation system, it can save up to 70% of water consumption compared to conventional irrigation systems.

“Water is the most precious resource we have on our planet,” says NORMA Group CEO Dr. Michael Schneider. “As a result, the demand for efficient irrigation systems continues to grow around the world. With this digital water timer, we are responding to growing customer demand for automatic irrigation systems as well as digital solutions while complying with local water guidelines.

Customers benefit from easy installation and operation. The digital water timer is installed directly between the faucet and the irrigation hose and is compatible with all drip irrigation systems and garden hose sprinkler devices commonly used in the United States. Users can customize watering days as well as watering start time and duration. The valve opens at the specified start time and irrigation begins. The rain delay feature also facilitates the economical use of water, a precious resource. When it starts to rain, irrigation can be suspended for up to seven days. The backlit LCD display makes it easy to read day or night.

The digital sprinkler timer was developed by NDS, a subsidiary of the NORMA Group, at its factory in Lindsay, California, and is based on the analog irrigation timer already available on the market. The product is initially available exclusively at a major US home improvement retailer.

Dr. Michael Schneider: “Water management is one of our strategic growth areas. We are therefore constantly working on new, innovative and sustainable product solutions to expand our product range. We are very pleased that our digital water timer is already attracting a lot of interest from our end customers. »
