Don't Waste Water. Get a Rain Sensor

  |   by admin    Bookmark and Share


SANTA BARBARA, CA - As winter approaches, so does the season for rain.  To avoid leaving your sprinklers on when it’s raining, get a free rain sensor from the City of Santa Barbara Water Conservation Program.  City residents can call 564-5460 to schedule a free water checkup.  At the checkup, if the water customer has a sprinkler timer, the City Water Resources Specialist will hand out a rain sensor.

A rain sensor is an irrigation shutoff device that prevents an automatic irrigation controller (sprinkler timer) from turning on during and after a rain storm.  These devices override a scheduled irrigation when a sensor on the shutoff device detects water.  When the collected rainwater has evaporated from the device, scheduled irrigations resume.
