Let your water meter tell you.

Your water meter measures water in cubic feet. It can accurately gauge how much water you have applied in a set amount of time.

Use the following conversion factors to figure out how long to leave the sprinklers on.

- To cover 1,000 square feet with an inch of water takes 624 gallons.
- 7.48 gallons = one cubic foot.
- 83 cubic feet of water covers 1,000 square feet, 1 inch deep.

Again I know this is late, but I still found it interesting.
