    I use a rain sensor on every irrigation system that I install. Most controllers have terminals for them and if they do not you just install the sensor in series in the common wire.

    Look at sensors like the Hunter Mini-Clik that dry on their own and turn the system back on. The old dump the tray sensors I do not like.

    Use Hunter Mini-clik. Reliable and easy. I never install a job without one.

    We use the hunter mini-clicks on our systems. Works good. You can also adjust how fast they dry out and reset themselves.
