View Full Version : Is there such thing as a rain gauge to hook up?

I know of rain sensors that tell the system to shut off if it is raining. But does anyone make something that can tell how much rain has fallen in the last week and make up for only the needed ammount?

There are a number of controllers on the market that do this. How much money do you want to spend?

Any decent rain sensor has a guage of sorts, that will shut off the timer only at the minimum amount that you specify. The great ones tell the timer how much fell, no matter what the amount, and compensate appropriately.
