Water enters the valve from the system main line and exerts a force against the center of the valve’s diaphragm. A small orifice in the diaphragm allows the water to flow through to the upper chamber between the diaphragm and the bonnet. The water continues to travel on through a port in the bonnet to the solenoid area. The solenoid has a light spring loaded metal piston that, when the valve is closed, covers the inlet port hole.

You can manually test proper operation of the rain sensor by using the One Touch Manual Start. During the Manual All stations cycle, press the test button on the “Clik-type” sensor (eg. Mini-Clik®) to interrupt watering.

Note: The rain sensor will only interrupt watering in Manual All Stations and automatic programming.  Manual single station will override the sensor circuit.
