Rain Check™

Automatic Rain Shutoff

The Rain Check is indispensable in all automatic irrigation systems for residential use.

It monitors rainfall levels and automatically overrides the controller to prevent unnecessary irrigation cycles.


  • Adjustable stainless steel sensing probes offer the flexibility of triggering the rain shutoff with as little as 1/8" (3,2 mm) of precipitation or when rainfall reaches or exceeds 1/2" (12,6 mm).
  • Water in rain collector pan evaporates faster than soil moisture to permit watering if required.
  • Electronic design eliminates micro switches and water absorbing disks which may rust and/or wear out
  • UV resistant plastic construction increases operating life in harsh environments.
  • Works with almost all 24 VAC controllers for maximum versatility.
  • Does not change irrigation programs, but automatically interrupts watering cycle when rainfall exceeds pre-selected level. Automatic return to normal watering.
  • Easy to install with adjustable mounting base.
  • Collector pan can be removed for cleaning.
