Rain Sensor – Lawn Sprinkler System

Guys… There is a permanent smile glued to my face right now! Why? You must be asking… because the sun is blazing shiny rays across my ghostly appearance, the warmth is caressing my soul, and I am comfortably content in only One Jacket!! Woohoo… this Southern Summer Lovin’ girl is feelin mighty fine today 😉

I am thankful for the weather that we’ve had… cold, wet, rainy, soggy, make me want to stay inside under a mountain of blankets near an imaginary fire place substituted by a space heater!!! Wow… ya I’m lovin’ this sunshine, and those kinda wintery days make me appreciate warmth so much more.

I’m sure you’ve noticed the weather too. And I’m sure you’ve noticed all the water standing in your grass and how moist your flower beds have been… If you’ve got a sprinkler system, you’ve probably got it manually turned onto OFF. Which is a great way to prevent the expansion of the wetland area you may or may not have naturally occurring in your yard… hehe.

So what happens when the rain stops? Do you remember to turn your system back on? I know I wouldn’t. I probably wouldn’t notice until my yard started getting a little too dry, or maybe my plants started wilting.

Nevertheless whether you do or don’t remember to turn your system on and off, modern day technology and introduced an awesome way of managing your sprinkler systems output of water when it’s raining. Simply attaching a Rain Sensor to your control will automatically shut off your system while the sensor is wet from rain. The “dry out” time of the sensor can be adjusted according to your preference. Whether you’d like a long wait time, or a short wait time.. this hassle free attachment is designed to reduce stress, reduce water waste, and increase your pocket book!

Brrrr…… Good Morning Y’all! There is a tiny ity bity slightly chilly feel in the air today, and I’m Loving It!

Mmmmm…. Yummy sounds so good!

Until then I’ll be wrapping my exposed pipes up so I don’t have to worry about them when I am chillin’ by the fire… hehe. Basically, you only need a few things to get this job done. Continue reading
