ICC-ES PMG Can Now Certify Weather-Based Irrigation Controllers
WaterSense labeled irrigation controllers use local weather and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions on the site. Instead of irrigating using a controller with a clock and a preset schedule, WaterSense labeled controllers allow watering schedules to better match plants’ water needs. The final WaterSense specification for weather-based irrigation controllers is available on the WaterSense website.


The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listing Program is now transitionally approved as a licensed certification provider to certify weather-based irrigation controllers for WaterSense, a partnership program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


“ICC-ES PMG has had a long relationship with EPA under the WaterSense program. We are a licensed certification provider to certify products under EPA WaterSense requirements for toilets, urinals, lavatory faucets and showerheads,” said Dawn LaFleur-Qualley, ICC-ES certification program manager. “With this transitional approval, we now are able to conduct the testing through our partner laboratory QAI and issue certification to the weather-based irrigation controllers’ specifications.”


The ICC-ES PMG program offers a full range of certification activities for both the U.S. and Canadian regions. ICC-ES PMG can certify your products to AB1953, Annex G of NSF/ ANSI 61, S.3874 (Federal Law for Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water) and the requirements of WaterSense. For more information, please contact ICC-ES at 1-800-423-6587 ext. 7643, or by e-mail at espmg@icc-es.org.
