We here at Jimmy's Lawn Sprinkler Services believe 100% in the use of rain sensors,
Water is our most precious resource and we need to protect it and not waste it,
We put one in on every Lawn Sprinkler System we Install,
We also suggest them to all homeowners we service that do not have a Rain Sensor Installed on their Lawn Sprinkler System,
Many people believe Rain Sensors do not work but in fact they do, some reasons for thinking they do not work are:
I woke up my sprinklers were on and it was raining,
Reason: Maybe it just started raining and the minimum setting is 1/8" of rain must fall before it will turn your Lawn Sprinkler System Off, and maybe your Rain Sensor is set for 1/4" or 1/2"
Just know that it is not human and it is not going to run inside and shut off the Lawn Sprinklers the second it starts raining
and be sure the Lawn Sprinkler Controller is not set to "bypass"
It has not rained in 2 days and my Lawn Sprinklers still do not come on I think that Rain Sensor is broken.
Reason: we had 2-4 inches of rain 2-3 days ago and that is enough to keep your garden watered for the week and the Rain Sensor knows that as it dries out at the same pace as soil
depending on the Rain Sensor settings you need to give it time to dry out, that's the way it works,
Lastly where is your rain sensor installed?
Does it have clear exposure to sun and rain?
or was it installed un der a roof overhang where it may never get wet?
For a rain sensor inspection just give us a call,
Shared a video below hope you got some value from this,
Just wanted to share this Garden Girl video to show what is possible and what is involved hope you get value check it out
Recently we have tried a new Organic product (new to us) and find it has worked to almost completely rid our yard of Mosquitos!
I say almost because we are still outside and we have no control over our neighbors properties so a bug is free to fly where it wants but they are no longer living in our yard!
I don't know if you are aware of it but Garlic Repels Mosquitos and we are now looking into offering a new service Featuring this Organic Product Soon to be Mosquito Management a division of Jimmy's Lawn Sprinkler Services
Just one spraying of all natural, liquid garlic-based Mosquito Barrier will keep mosquitoes out of your yard and away from your home, 24 hours a day for nearly a month.
Mosquitoes can't tolerate garlic - that's why there are no mosquitoes in a garlic field!
Being used right now by City Governments for parks, golf courses and school grounds - because it works (read the testimonials).
We have found a local testimonial
Di Maggio's on the Bay
Brewer Capri Marina
Port Washington, New York
"Mosquito Barrier has done more than we could have ever hope for. Our Di Maggio's on the Bay water front restaurant at the Brewer Capri Marina in Port Washington has a 3000 square foot dining deck that is built over Manhasset Bay. Before Mosquito Barrier our outdoor diners would be plagued with all sorts of annoying biting insects. These insects lived under the deck along the water line. They came up to the dining deck via the spaces between the decking. As a result, customers would skip desert and coffee. After we applied one application of Mosquito Barrier our outdoor deck became the most sought after seating for our restaurant. Diners now enjoy a fine leisurely meal over looking the Manhasset Bay, complete with desert and coffee without being pestered by bothersome biting insect.
The garlic scent, though strong while in its container as concentrated, dissipates away in about fifteen minutes after application. Although the manufacture recommends application every thirty- (30) days, we apply it about twenty- (20) days. We attribute this to the constant washing of the outdoor deck, furniture and the like. In so much as we are on the water, the fact that this product is one hundred (100%) organic is a bonus. We are happy to inform our customers that the biting insect population can be eradicated with an application of an organic product such as your Mosquito Barrier.
And lastly Kevin, we would certainly intend to purchase Mosquito Barrier again."
