Since we're showing rain sensor photos lately, here's one for a new HOA system I took over this year. Sensor attached to the side of the Hunter Pro-C, behind the 4' wall at the community entrance, underneath the branches to the tree.

Lots more to do at this project. Some zones have 10 spray heads, and some have 40+. The 40+ zones are very weak, so I'm proposing changing nozzles to Toro Precisions. Some of the wires leading into the controller go through the conduit. Problem is that as zones were added, they would just pull apart the PVC fittings leading into the controller, and fish the wires through between the fittings and pipe

Pete - I will place an order soon for tails. I had to install two 12 stations on this one and one one other. I'll replace them out later in the summer.

I think it is actually a fiber line for cable TV/Internet, but even at that...

HO calls and says that the grass area by the outdoor sitting area has a leak.
Checked the meter, no movement at all.
Fired up all of the zones in the area, nothing broken or leaking.
Checked controller programming, a little excessive but not enough to cause the area to be this wet.
Walked the area again and finally realized the real problem. There's a "leaky pipe" sitting on the end of the driveway above the wet area that is connected to a hose timer, which is set to run everyday for 54 minutes.

this place was installed by a local outfit. the rust gives away their lazy practice of up sizing spray nozzles to make up for only having one row of heads.
