By popular demand, we have put together these Claber Duplo kits that include not only the timer unit, but also a wired Claber rain sensor and a 9v battery. As times go on we are all becoming more and more aware of how crucial it is to save water where we can, and for many a good place to start is in the garden.
The Claber rain sensors connect up to the Duplo timers with a 2m wire before being mounted nearby using the stainless steel bracket provided. The rain sensor simply catches the rain and, if the rainfall is significant enough, temporarily overrides any irrigation cycles that may be programmed. Once the collected water evaporates, this sends a signal to the timer to allow the programmes to continue as normal. The main benefits of using the Claber rain sensors are:
Prevents unnecessary water usage by halting programmed irrigation cycles during rainfall.
Helps to prevent over-watering of planting during times of heavy rainfall.
Saves money over time on the water bills as water is only used when required.
No additional programming or power source required, simply plug it in and mount in nearby!
