    Didn't check. Only ever tried an early one. Once was enough. Saw the same that it could be 100 degrees for a week. Two cloudy days and the water would plunge.

    Check the Region and Factor (or whatever it's called) settings on it. I've found that region 3 and the factor set somewhere between 7 and 9 work best for Tx. A lot of people will set them to region 4 thinking they'll get more water but that actually does the opposite.

    Also, they work on a 3 day average so a couple of cloudy days will effect them down. I don't think the sensor is a thermometer but rather just senses whether or not it's sunny.

    They're better than just a rain sensor but they're still pretty crude.

    AI, you need to turn your water down some. Try 3/7 or 3/5 and see how it does.

    As I mentioned earlier,I brought the X-Core 8 station back and got the Hunter PCC900i. I feel better now,the x-core was a tad small.

    His clock doesn't have any power yet. The blank display is kinda a give away. Probably just gonna use a pigtail to the outlet. Or the external transformer supplied with an indoor pro-c.
