As Als suggested contact the water company and ask them for a quote to install a second water meter for the garden. Water from this outside tap is calculated at a cheaper rate.

You may have to also have a plumber install taps in the garden.

Check the installation price/s and rate before making your decision.

Sorry didn't explain clearly. Each sprinkler is on for 10 mns each, there are 8 on total. When one finishes the next comes on.

Hello happymummy:
Sorry to hear about your water bills. But I don't quite understand when you say that you turn it on for 10 minutes each evening but that it takes 80 minutes to do the whole terrain.

I'm far from being an expert but as far I understand if your are "Tout à l'égoût" i.e. all used waters are sent to the sewers then about 1/2 of the cost of you bill is for treatment of the used waters. Now if you are on a septic tank the water will cost you much less. It is possible to have different counters/plumbing setups one for the house connected to to the sewers and one for the garden. If you have this system the water for arrosage wil cost you about 1/2 less.
