Why Do I Need A Rain Sensor?

Hort Services Group will install a Rainbird rain sensor that easily connects to your irrigation system, but why do you need it? Having a properly installed rain sensors greatly come in handy because of the advantages they provide to a homeowner. Rain sensors can turn off an irrigation system during and after rain falls. Rain sensors are wired to the irrigation system and interrupt the cycle after certain amounts of rain have fallen. The benefits of having rain sensors include huge water conservation; lower utility bills; prevents overwatering; and your irrigation system is less likely to malfunction, since it is only on at certain times. Constant water flow will shorten an irrigation system’s life span because water will cause corrosion overtime. By using rain sensors, less water is being moved inside the system.

Rain Sensors Are Required By Law

Moreover, according to Florida law, any irrigation system must be properly installed, be maintained, and operate with technology that inhibits or interrupts operation of the system during periods of sufficient moisture. Although it is required by law, it is a hugely valuable trait for your irrigation system to have.
