A typical golf course requires 100,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of water per week in the summer. With the Flosaver ™ Air Reduction & Efficiency Valve, you can stop paying for the air in your water lines, and reduce your total overall operational expenses.
The USGA has been researching ways to cut the massive, rising costs and usage of water on golf courses since 1983. An investment of $50 million in research on types of grass that requires less water was done, saving 22% annually on water bills. Although this was a major success, prices and usage are still in need of being substantially reduced. In November of 2015, the USGA teamed up with the University of Minnesota to find ways to do so, which in turn, would help the sports world find ways to became more sustainable. The average annual water bill for golf courses is $600,000 with an annual 11% increase. A typical golf course requires 100,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of water per week in the summer. While trying to lower water bill costs, many courses have had to postpone improvements that could potentially help the issue because their pockets are being emptied by the continuously already high bills. Many jobs have also been cut while trying to limit spendings. With the addition of the Flosaver valve in golf courses, the USGA’s journey to lowering costs, maintaining course efficiency, allowing course workers to stay employed and reaching sustainability can be continued and thrive. Together, we can lower your water bills and help with these issues. Reach out for an evaluation of your course today.
