A More Efficient Way To Water

Many gardeners keep their lawns looking green and lush by putting their sprinkler irrigation systems on a timer to automatically provide adequate water for their grass. While automatic systems are convenient, they do have some drawbacks, such as turning on even when it's raining outside and wasting this precious resource. To prevent your sprinkler from operating when Mother Nature is doing the job for you, consider installing a rain sensor.

The Mini-Clik rain sensor is one of the newest types on the market. While most sensors have to accumulate a certain amount of water before they shut off, the Mini-Clik has special disks that expand when it rains to signal the system to shut down. After only 5 minutes of rain, the system will turn off until the disks dry out. The shutting on and off won't disrupt the normal timing of irrigation. The Mini-Clik can be mounted in a variety of locations.
