Thoughts on wireless rain sensors, Blu-loc, Remotes for controllers

We looked at blu locs, Lasco twisters are our choice. We install remote
pigtails on all systems; great for service & winterizing! Not had much luck
w/ Rain Sensors: had them stick open or closed. Our market is such that
within 10 minutes, one of us can give the clocks a timed rain-off.

Temperature does have a lot to do with poly work. In some cold weather installs, when joining two larger poly pipes that are both curling up at the end of a pull, I would forget trying to fit them to a straight coupling, and use two street ells threaded together, for an easy connection.
