A few things to keep in mind before purchasing your controller: 

  1. you must install the controller yourself (where are our DIY-ers at?!) 
  2. the controller syncs to your smartphone, so you must have a smartphone and be comfortable using smartphone apps!  

You can even send in your old controller to be recycled! Learn more here:   

So now that you’re ready to get your controller, head over to and have your water bill account number handy to verify your address – sales are limited to City of Sugar Land water customers!
