Stop watering your lawn when it's raining!

April showers bring... a lot of wasted water! You see it all the time... someone's sprinkler's are running when it's clearly raining outside, and they're wasting water. If you have a sprinkler system installed in your yard or business and don't already have one, break down, spend the $20 and install a sprinkler system rain sensor / rain shutoff.

Once the amount of rainfall has reached a specified level, your sprinkler system will be deactivated and it won't be allowed to start until a certain amount of water has evaporated. This prevents you from unnecessarily wasting water and can save quite a bit on your water bill. Especially in instances where your sprinkler system is set to run at night while you are asleep, (as most folks do) and if you experience night-time rain showers. You should also consider setting your sprinkler timers to run every other day or less frequently depending on where you live.

Visit our Amazon store to purchase a rain sensor/rain shutoff online.
