Why Use a Rain and Freeze Sensor on your Sprinkler System?
With our Washington weather, you never know if the weather will be freezing out or sunny one minute and rainy the next.
Have peace of mind knowing you are:
- Watering when it’s nice outside, not raining or freezing out
- Preventing overwatering
- Conserving water
- Saving money on water bills
- Preventing possible hazards
With a rain sensor, you can have security knowing that you are only watering when it’s needed. The sensor has a removable tipping rain bucket that measures the rainfall. You can adjust the sensor to automatically stop watering when the bucket is filled to an 1/8" up to 3/4".
Rain/Freeze Sensor Combo:
The Rain/Freeze sensor is programmable. Most people set it at 35 degrees to turn off the system. This helps prevent possible hazards to pedestrians with icy sidewalks and damage to your sprinkler system and landscape.
Either the Rain Sensor or Rain and Freeze Sensors connect to most sprinkler controllers. It’s not too late to install the sensor this year.
