I havent installed it on the house yet, It's wired up and I was testing it. I can pore water into the thing and the system will NOT turn off.
After I can push it down with my finger and the system will turn off.
Is this a product that doesn't work ?
and ideals ?
First thing is Orbit is not the best. BUT, I remember reading here that the iternals are the same as Hunter PGP.
Why do you need a rain/freeze sensor in Houston? You are not going to freeze
(not the norm there) and I hope it is due to the high price of grey water in houston? The water sucks there.
But shound like you have a wiring issue or bad sensor issue. I know this forum is not the best on helping DIY / homeowner here.
