Do I Need a Rain/Freeze Sensor
All cities in the state of Texas now require a Rain/Freeze sensor that will stop your sprinkler from running on rainy or freezing days.
We install top-of-the-line wireless Rain/Freeze sensors. This device is wired into your present sprinkler controller. The other part of the device is intalled on the outside of the house. Usually on the gutter or the eave of the house within 30 feet of the controller.
The device stops the sprinkler from coming on when there is 1/8" of rain or the temperature drops below 34 degrees. As the sensor dries out or the termperature rises, the controller will automatically go back into normal operation.
All city and state plumbing codes require the installation and testing of a backflow prevention device wherever a permanent irrigation system is connected to a municipal water supply.
This device is designed to protect both your and your neighbors drinking water.
