Hydro-Rain HRC 990

Setting a new standard in battery operated controllers, the HRC 990 is the answer to those difficult situations when installing burial wire is not possible or desired. HRC 990 is tough enough for installation in a below ground, valve box environment while providing years of no hassle, reliable service. Never before has there been a product that is designed to stand up to such a rugged environment and yet be so easy to use. HRC 990’s plug-in controller programming pod allows you the luxury of removing the pod from its water tight housing for the convenience of finger tip, out-of-the-valve-box programming. Installation is fast and easy—just plug and go. Add up to four valves, moisture or rain/freeze sensor, and/or solar power module, all without the use of tools and without the hassle.

Features & Benefits

  • Unique Water Tight Plug-in System — Requires no splices or wire connectors.
  • Battery Powered — Wire-free installation provides convenience and speed (3 AA batteries included).
  • Two Independent Programs (A and B) — Programming flexibility previously only available in larger AC system controllers.
  • Modular — Base unit HRC 990 accepts up to 4 DC solenoid modules. One solenoid is included with base unit, additional solenoids sold separately.
  • Universal Design — For use with multiple brands of valves including: Hydro-Rain® HRB, HRJ, Rain Bird® PEB, PESB, DV, Irritrol 205 Series, and more (adapters included).
  • Water Budgeting — Saves water by adjusting the watering durations (10% to 200%).
  • Rain Delay — Postpones regular watering schedule for 24, 48, 72 hours and resumes automatic watering when set time has passed.
  • Submersible — Functions properly submersed up to 3'.
  • Moisture Sensor Ready — Let the water content in the soil determine watering schedules with the Moisture Module (HRC 990 MS MD sold separately).
  • Solar Power Ready — Go battery-free by harnessing power from the sun with the solar power module (HRC 990 SP MD sold separately).

Easy to program, latching solenoids are too expensive
Easy to program. Mounting system is too flimsy. Overall it is a good design. The solenoids are expensive.

can you use this product with standard antisiphon valves?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you have to replace the existing solenoid with a latching solenoid and you will likely need an adapter for the solenoid. Once you have the right parts it is easy to do. The latching solenoids are around $20.
I get an error rain delay and cannot clear it on the HRC 990 ?
