St. Pete giving away free rain sensors
Just one call can save you a lot of money and won’t cost you a dime. St. Pete leaders want you to conserve more water, and they’re offering to install free rain sensors on your irrigation system to help.
Using a rain sensor in conjunction with your irrigation system is not only required across Florida, but it can also mean big savings for homeowners.
St. Pete leaders estimate it can make a sizable dent in your potable water bill, which is important because more than 40 percent of your water bill goes to irrigation, unless you have a well or use reclaimed water.
The city mounts the sensors on a roof or fence and they automatically alert your irrigation system to turn off when your area gets a certain amount of rain.
