Hunter Industries has developed and launched a new web application called the Hunter Run Time Calculator. The interactive tool is free to all, and aims to help homeowners and professionals easily program Hunter controllers to produce efficient schedules.
According to Phil Robisch, Hunter's Product Technical Resource Manager, "Calculating an irrigation schedule is a difficult task because of the many variables involved. This calculator aims to de-mystify the process and give users a starting point for how to take care of their landscape while using the correct amount of water."
Using the calculator is designed to be an easy process. Within minutes a user can setup an account, enter a few details about their landscape, and have a Run Time Schedule generated that accounts for local watering restrictions. The user can view, print and email the schedule anytime. There is also a one-click door card conversion and a QR code that can be adhered to a controller for future reference. Supporting documents and videos are also provided for actual controller programming.
The application also includes features for professionals, such as the ability to name and setup multiple controllers and an option for programming obsolete or non-Hunter controllers. Professionals can also duplicate any schedule with the click of a button.
This tool is free to all and can be accessed directly at runtime.hunterindustries.com
