A rain sensor is a small device wired to the common line on an automatic sprinkler system designed to override the automatic watering cycle when a certain level of rainfall is detected. The shut-off level is usually set at 1/4 inch of rain.
The sensors do not affect the sprinkler system’s overall timing device. Once the collection dish dries out, the automatic timer kicks in. We offer both wired rain sensors and wireless. Call for more details
Benefits of Installing a Rain Sensor
Cost savings – the sprinkler system shuts off when adequate rainfall is received, thus saving money on water bills.
System savings – there is less wear and tear on the sprinkler system because it only runs when necessary.
Lawn protection – reduces potential damage to the lawn caused by over-watering.
