We are proud to announce that all of our AC powered controllers will carry the WaterSense label when paired with the appropriate Solar Sync sensor. With numerous user friendly features available on the X-Core, Pro-C, I-Core and ACC product lines, there is a Hunter WaterSense labeled controller built to fit any landscape irrigation system.
Hunter is the first Irrigation Manufacturer to receive approval on such a wide array of smart controllers under the strict testing guidelines put in place by the EPA. Previously installed controllers with Solar Sync compatibility can be easily converted to meet WaterSense requirements by simply adding the Solar Sync, eliminating the need to replace the entire controller.
The Solar Sync ET sensor is an advanced weather sensor that calculates evapotranspiration (ET) and adjusts Hunter controllers daily based on local weather conditions eliminating the need for monthly subscription fees. Solar Sync measures sunlight and temperature, and uses ET to determine the correct seasonal adjustment percentage value to send to the controller. The controller then uses its programmed run time and adjusts to Solar Sync's seasonal adjustment value to modify the actual irrigation run time for that day. In addition, the Solar Sync ET sensor integrates Hunter's popular Rain-Clik™ and Freeze-Clik® sensors providing quick response in shutting down your irrigation system during rain and/or freezing conditions.
With proper installation, programming, and maintenance, homeowners and businesses can use WaterSense labeled controllers to help save billions of gallons of water annually. To learn more about Hunter's line of smart controllers click here. To learn more about WaterSense labeling click here.
