PPS Clarity Water Management
Conserve energy & water by adapting your watering schedule to the current climate.
Clarity WM is a Water Management tool integrated with our pump station that records water usage and rainfall with daily / monthly totals and average daily usage. Also included is Rain and Trend Utilities to track precipitation and pump station operation. This information combined with an easy to use interface provides the operator the critical information they need to successfully operate, monitor and budget their irrigation system.

- A must have tool for the increasing scrutiny over water rights, permits and daily allowances
- Historical Trend Graphs give insight to current and past watering cycles providing the information needed to remotely manage irrigation
- Report Utility to review previous daily or monthly water usages and YTD average daily gallons, keeping operators in control and ahead of strict water budgets
- 7-Day Scheduler gives operators the necessary control over multi-clock systems allowing them to schedule mow or event windows at the core of the system
- Automatically pauses the station operation if rainfall exceeds the set, adjustable limit or manually pause the station ahead of a weather event, prevent irrigation cycles from running during or immediately following a rainstorm
- Ensures the Pump Station is operating at the highest efficiency

Water Filtration is a crucial component of any irrigation pumping system. The most common cause of irrigation pump system breakdowns are tiny particles of debris found in water – even water that appears clean and clear. A PPS Filter System will pay for itself many times over versus the cost of the necessary maintenance and repairs required for systems without it. To ensure we provide our customers with only the BEST filtration options for any application, PPS has partnered with two of the nations leading filter manufacturers, Amiad and Evoqua VAF.

Common Problems with No Filter:
- Sprinkler heads getting plugged with sediment, including small particles of sand, silt, debris and organic matter
- Dead or dry spots in the turf or field caused by plugged sprinkler heads
- Increased maintenance and repair costs to prevent excessive downtime
- Unfiltered sediment can damage the components of the irrigation system and halt operation altogether
PPS Filter Solution Options
The type of water filter you install on your irrigation pump system depends on the water quality. Some water filters for irrigation systems are more effective for sand and other sediment, while other filters work better for organic matter.
- Screen Filters: excellent for removing hard particulates such as sand from irrigation water. Screen Filters are cleaned by removing the screen and cleaning them by hand or flushing them with a stream of water.
- Cartridge Filters: a rough paper type filter and can remove slippery organic matter. Some Cartridge Filters can be washed and reused, but most are simply replaced when they are dirty.
- Centrifugal Filters or Sand Separators: used primarily for removing sand from the irrigation water which requires only occasional cleaning of the collection chamber. A backup Screen Filter or Media Filter is often used with a Centrifugal Filter for further protection of drip irrigation systems.
