like a mini click and the spindle should go down and listen for the click...

nope, cause if he did he would know how it worked....

Dude, I'm an nerdy irrigation guy as well...I actually stumped him today...

What does the ESP stand for?

he was clueless...

I told him and showed him on the panel...Extra simple programing..

My point (which evaded you) is NOT whether a "nerd" knows anything, it's that he would know you called him a "nerdy know-it-all" if he did visit here. Some people do not like being called names behind their back. And online too.

BTW, you visit here at LawnSite and didn't know how the wireless mini click can be tested.

Do you understand now what I meant?

Just some friendly advice towards people skills, especially since you are the new guy at your job.

Usually I test each sensor I put in by starting a program, and spraying the sensor with a hose.

Nope. Just a test to see if the water shuts it off. works fine. Dries out. Resumes what it does. But I've never used the Hunter. And it's a good way to show the homeowner.

How long does it take the mini click's to dry out dana?....and Rotar cuts to the heart of the problem of testing rain detectors with actual water, given the possibility of a homeowner refusing to pay for a system that isn't immediately ready to run. (although bypass switches help out a lot)

No, there is a plastic pin that sticks straight up, between the screens. I think Hunter calls it a "quick response button"
