      I installed one of these Orbit rain/freeze sensor and it hasn't worked consistently during the last two years since its been installed. During heavy rains, the sprinkler system turns on wasting precious water when its not needed. I've even placed tap water into it as a test and my sprinkler system still turns on. Not sure if I got a lemon but looking at some of the other negative reviews, I'd say the problem lies with the sensor. This shouldn't surprise me about Orbit products. On a separate note, I also installed 4 Orbit jar type valves when I installed the rain sensor but within the first 5 months two of the valves started leaking. I had to replace the diaphragms but then the other two valves started leaking a few weeks later which required new diaphragms as well. After another 7 months, more leaks. I finally tore these pieces of garbage out and replaced them with Rain Bird valves. After 1.5 years, these Rain Birds are operating flawlessly without a single issue. Should have bought Rain Bird in the beginning and saved me lots of wasted time and frustrations.

      Cons unreliable, does not work, waste of time and money
