One of the most important issues for a properly functioning sprinkler system is timing, however, timing is more than setting a clock. Timing is also coordinating your sprinklers with environmental conditions such as rainfall, wind speed or air temperature. This is why Andy’s provides top quality climate sensors and only installs fully-tested products.
How Do Climate Sensors Work?
Our sprinkler system technicians can easily install a sprinkler climate sensor on any automatic irrigation system and have it working properly within minutes. When it starts to rain, there are small disks inside the sensor that expand according to the amount of rain detected. This expansion of the disk activates an internal switch that shuts off sprinklers during a storm and keeps them off. A quick burst of rain in a short period won’t keep the sprinklers off for very long, but a continual downpour will keep your system off until the disks finally dry out.
After the disks are completely dry, they contract back to normal size, which releases the switch. Just think how much money you will save with such a brilliant piece of technology housed in such a small device!
Your weather sensor will continue to operate for quite some time, automatically resetting itself, never affecting your controller. Andy’s Sprinklers installs only the best climate sensors, built to withstand the harsh summers and freezing winters.
Freeze Detectors Prevent Damage
The freeze detectors on these sensors also provide a safety feature for both commercial and residential properties. Sprinkler systems that are allowed to run during extremely cold weather can cover delicate plants and shrubbery with ice. Just one cycle of your sprinkler system during freezing weather can cause thousands of dollars in damage to landscaping. More seriously, water spray and runoff can cause ice to form on sidewalks and in the street, leading to slips, falls, and fender benders.
These are just some of the reasons why many Texas cities require homeowners to have climate sensors on their sprinkler systems. Without a climate control unit, you may face fines in your area.
