Rain Sensor for Watering System
 

Description

This Orbit rain sensor will provide convenience and flexibility to your fully automatic watering system. After a set amount of rain has fallen, or freezing temperatures exist, the sensor engages a switch that will prevent the timer from watering. Once the rain sensor has dried sufficiently, the sensor allows normal sprinkler operation. Works with most new and existing sprinkler systems. Five setting from 1/8" to 1". Three mounting options. Six-year warranty.

Rain Sensor for Watering System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more watering in the rain With this in line with the common terminal of my sprinkler system I don't have to worry about seeing the sprinklers running while it is raining. Installation is a snap. You will have to mount it in the clear where rain can get to the sensor in its own right and not deflected by gutters or overhangs. Other than that quick trip up a step ladder it's nice to buy something that will "really" save money. You can set the sensor for the amount of rainfall required to keep your sprinkler system from operating by simply moving the calibrated knob on top of the unit. That way if it is just a passing shower, enough to get the grass wet but not do any real good, the sprinklers will come on the next time as scheduled. The little discs in the top of the Rain Sensor swell with rain and that is what makes the cutoff switch function. When they {the discs} dry out the sprinklers operate again when scheduled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working well This sensor has been working well for me over the last few weeks. No idea on freeze sensor though, as it's still summer. Properly tells irrigation control unit to not water. I have this hooked up to a RainBird controller and it works just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No rain so far After reading some reviews on another site, I was wary of this product. Others said it was very difficult to install. No way. Installation was a snap. Dry testing went well, now I need some rain to see if I set the adjustments correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install great value Easy install great value, this unit is a must have. Why let your sprinklers run during or after the rain?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbit a Perfect Fit Initially concerned whether this sensor would be a good replacement for my old Toro "Rain Sensor", but it worked great with my Toro GreenKeeper 212 automatic sprinkler programmer. It has only one drawback- I couldn't disconnect the wiring from the unit, so I had to feed the complete 50ft of lead wiring in reverse order through the PCV tubing I had going through my house's outside brick wall into my garage where the controller was positioned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install, No Need to Water in the the Rain Have just installed this product on our irrigation system in preparation for summer watering season. Had a similar rain sensor on our previous home's system and it worked very well, saves using / paying for excess water when the rains have soaked the plants during the night or whenever. Inexpensive, easy install, adjustable to whatever you think is too much rain to apply more water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Used this as a replacement gage when I put gutters on. I used the same location as the original sensor that work fine, but whose wires weren't long enough to mount it on the gutter. When compared to a number of manual gages and local reporting, it is widely inaccurate. At the .5 inch setting it shut down the system at approximately .2 inches. The best I could do was set it for .75 inches and it would go off at between .4 and .5. This was after almost four months of checking and adjusting, so winds, etc. shouldn't have resulted in these fairly consistent readings. Customer support responded to an inquiry by advising me how the cork disks work, which I already knew, and that he would ask. Never got another response and the first did not motivate me to try again. Am going to replace with another make.
