View Full Version : rain sensor

06-24-2001, 07:46 PM
I have been giving an option on rain sensors. Started wondering what others average charge for a rain sensor was. This is assuming a fairly easy place to install, amounting to about an hour's labor. Also wondering what ideas are out there to hide the wire going to the sensor. We usually try to run it up a downspout.

75-100 bucks. Downspouts work well, sometimes we will paint the wire the same color as the exterior.

Thank you for the info. Been charging about $150. only about 25% takers. Seems to be kind of a new thing here. Never have seen a wireless sensor. Who is the manufacturer? Where have you gotten them? How much?

If the clock is in the garage in a decent location , I just drill thru the back of the clock and mount it. Silicone the hole and no wires to see.
