Hunter RainClik Rain Sensor
The reliable rain sensor with instant shutoff.
Most rain-sensing devices must first accumulate a set amount of rainfall before a switch is activated that interrupts the circuit from the controller and shuts off the system. In that “accumulation time;” the system will continue to water; giving the appearance a precious resource is being wasted…exactly the opposite impression a municipality; a business or an upstanding citizen would like to convey. Only the Hunter Rain-Clik™; with its unique Quick Response™ feature; can command a controller to shut off immediately – not after a quarter- or a half-inch; but right when it starts to rain. And; unlike any of its competitors; the Rain-Clik can be mounted in a variety of ways: on a rain gutter; on conduit; with a telescoping extension to bring the unit away from an eave; or in the standard method on a flat vertical surface like a wall or fence.

When it Rains; it Stops
The rain sensors that are marketed today typically will allow an irrigation system to operate while it is raining; only shutting the system down after a quantity of rain has fallen. This can easily lead to public perception that such a system is wasting water. It may also cause a homeowner to think that his system is not functioning right; leading to a service call that the contractor will later tell him was unnecessary. But; within 2-5 minutes after it starts to rain; the Hunter Rain-Clik™ will interrupt the controller common circuit; keeping the system from operating for approximately 2 hours. Quick Response™ - it's a feature that no other rain-sensing device offers.
Hunter Rain-Clik: The Ideal Money-Saving System Add-on is Now Available
A rain sensor is an excellent item to sell as an addition to your customers’ irrigation systems. That’s because; for the small expense to install the accessory; a homeowner can realize substantial water savings over the life of the system.
Most rain sensing devices need to accumulate a set amount of rainfall before a switch is activated that interrupts the circuit from the controller and shuts off the system. This means a system will continue to water as the rain comes down. But the Hunter Rain-Clik; with its unique Quick Response™ feature; will instruct a controller to shut off immediately when it starts to rain.
What also sets Rain-Clik apart is the variety of ways the product can be mounted: on a flat vertical surface like a wall or fence; on a rain gutter; on conduit; or with the unit’s handy telescoping extension arm that brings the device away from an eave.
Keep in mind that an increasing number of cities now require a rain- sensing device on all irrigation systems. And while some cities only call for the devices on new Address these needs today with a Hunter Rain-Clik; available at your local authorized Hunter distributor.
