Hunter's new Solar Sync Technology takes weather-based irrigation control to a new level. It's no longer just a matter of shutting off the system when you've had a bit of rain, now it's about efficient, smart watering.
It's easy to install & once it is, your Hunter controller will automatically adjust watering for increased water efficiency.
So how does it work? The Hunter Solar Sync has 3 ingenious features that ensure water gets to your garden only when it should:
- Quick ResponseTM reacts quickly to any passing shower,
- RainClikTM makes sure your system doesn't switch on after a soaking downpour,
- The Solar Sensor measures the suns rays & air temperature to keep your lawn & garden at peak performance with optimal watering.
These sensors are compatible with Hunter controllers (look for "compatible with Solar Sync" indicator). X-Core & ACC only require the sensor. ICC, Pro C & I-Core require the Solar Sync Module.

Are there any safety standards my irrigation system must meet?
The main safety concern is regarding the water supply. To avoid contamination of the mains water upstream, in most municipalities, a Dual Check Valve is required at the water connection.
Can I run an irrigation system off a regular garden tap?
A garden tap is an excellent place to connect your irrigation system. Ideally, install a connection point behind the tap (turn the water off first) so you can still use your tap to fill a bucket when you need to.
Do I need a plumber to install or fix my system?
No, unless you’re tapping into your water supply, a plumber isn’t required. Most domestic irrigation systems can be installed by anyone half handy.
