When it comes to reticulation, there are two things we get asked about the most: water efficiency and cost. In Australia, we all know how precious water is and what cost it comes at; this is why Rain Sensors are such an essential part of any efficient reticulation system.
Most of the rain sensors on the market work the same way: they accumulate a certain amount of rainfall before switching off. During this “accumulation time”, the system will unnecessarily use water, wasting it. This is why our preferred model is the Hunter Rain Click. This particular model has a built-in technology that can switch a system off when it starts to rain, so there is no wasted water usage like in other models. There are plenty other clever features, such as an adjustable ring that allows the setting of how long until the system will turn back on after rain, wireless connectivity with over 200 meters of range so it can be placed almost anywhere around the house and brackets that allow it to be placed on walls, awnings or even gutters. Hunter also offers a five year warranty period, with a 10-year warranty for the battery.
The addition of a Rain Sensor to your current system, or inclusion to your new system, will not only save our environment but also save you money on wasted water bills.
