  • What's Included
  • The Rain Sensor avoids unnecessary wastage of water by simply shutting down the water timer when it rains. A smart, efficient way to save water especially where watering restrictions are in place. When rain water on the ground is 15.7 ounces by square feet, the Rain Sensor internal float lifts so that a signal is sent to the water timer to stop all programs after the one in current operation. Once rain water has evaporated, the timer programs are automatically resumed even when evaporation happens during a programmed watering cycle. Extremely easy to install, remove the jumper from inside the water timer and insert the 6 foot Sensor cable (additional cable of same or larger diameter can be added to a maximum of 65 feet). Supplied with a stainless wall bracket and screws, it should be mounted in a clear area that has no coverage of plant life, foliage and undergrowth. Compatible with Claber models: Duplo Evolution (8420), Tempo Select (8486), Dual Select (8488). Unit is 100% quality controlled during manufacturing. 2-year warranty. Made in Italy. Do not expose at temperature below 37.4° F or higher than 122° F.

    This sensor is amazing! Does not allow the Water Timer to operate after or during a rain storm.
    Saves on watering cost. A must to have along with the timer. Both items worth the price.

    The thing is that the duplo water timer only checks in with the rain sensor before it begins its watering cycle. Once the cycle starts the rain sensor has no effect until the next cycle. I won't stop the water flow in the middle of a cycle.

    Also, I've noticed that it takes longer than I would like for the water to evaporate from the unit and restart the timer. Seems to be 2-3 days after a rainfall, depending on the humidity and sun exposure.

    This is no more than a well encased magnetic switch with a magnet in a float to activate the switch. Unfortunately, if the valve is "pulse controlled" as those in the timers I have are, then this sensor might not allow the pulse which turns off the water to actuate. An example of this is that I installed the sensor near the sprinkler in the hope that if there was some rain prior to the sprinkler coming on the sprinkler would shut off when the soaking was complete. However the magnetic switch opened when the water reached the proper level and the sprinkler continued to water the lawn until I noticed that it hadn't turned off several hours after it was supposed to(no saving water that time). If your timer will shut off the water when the sensor circuit opens then this will work as expected. If a polarity change in your timer opens and closes the valve then this device could be modified with a diode to perform as expected. However if a pulse of the same polarity opens and closes the valve this is not what you want.
