    We use the have great luck with the Irritrol Wireless and also when it was R&D. This year we have had so many call backs on these units. It seems like when Toro took over, quality and reliability decreased.

    Has anyone had the same issues????

    Im thinking of going back to Hunter again

    We've been using the Hunter wireless without any trouble. Most of the time we manage to keep the sensor within 10 or so feet of the reciever.

    That said, we only do 3-5 rainsensors a year. For some reasion, its not a big upsell here, and they don't work all that well (Dry too fast).

    We are back to hard wiring mini-clicks. Company tried the Hunter Wireless for almost two years, and I get to do a service call on about one every week. When at all possible, I just install a new mini-click. I think the R-co was a better product, but it had to be installed inside. This means controller access to by pass.
