Smart irrigation controllers have made watering large properties incredibly easy, but there are a few additional add-ons and sensors that can make your irrigation system even more efficient and safe. While numerous companies produce irrigation controllers and sensors, Hunter Irrigation is one brand that provides a wide range of smart irrigation controllers and sensors. Sposato Irrigation is proud to carry products from Hunter Irrigation, a leading name in irrigation technology. Read on to learn about some of the innovative sensors made by Hunter Irrigation, and consider adding these features to your commercial or residential irrigation system.
Although wind may not impact drip irrigation systems, it can have a hugely detrimental effect on sprinkler systems. Wind can carry water away from its intended target, which wastes water, leaves your plants parched, and can cause hazardous conditions on nearby sidewalks or roads. Hunter Irrigation has a few different sensors that can detect wind, shut your system off for the duration of the gusts, and resume watering once the wind has died down. If you live in a windy area, the Wind-Clik might be the perfect option for you. However, Delaware residents might prefer Hunter’s Mini-Weather Station, which can detect wind, rain, and freezing temperatures.
There are few things more frustrating than arriving at your property only to find that your sprinkler system is running in the pouring rain. Rain sensors are incredibly valuable in irrigation systems because they can eliminate extremely wasteful water use. Hunter Irrigation has a few different sensors that detect rain: Solar Sync, Rain-Clik, Mini-Clik, and Mini-Weather Station. If you are looking for a sensor that only detects rain, the Mini-Clik is your best choice. Since properties in Delaware experience frost and snow, you might want to consider the Rain-Clik, which senses rain and freezing temperatures.
While rain sensors can prevent you from wasting water, freeze sensors can help prevent safety hazards and property damage. When your irrigation system runs during a deep freeze, there are a few dangerous situations that can arise. Sprinklers near sidewalks or roads can spray water onto them, which creates dangerous ice when frozen. These patches of ice on your property can be a significant liability. Another concern is that water can freeze inside of your sprinkler heads, emitters, and other parts of your system. This frozen water can cause damage, which might not be noticeable right away. If your irrigation system sustains damage, you might not notice until temperatures rise and your landscape becomes flooded and soggy. If freezing weather is a concern for your irrigation system, consider installing Hunter Irrigation’s Freeze-Clik, Rain-Clik, Solar Sync, or Mini-Weather Station models. The experts at Sposato Irrigation can help you find and install the perfect tools and add-ons for your sprinkler system.
