I now have a Hunter timer which came with the house so I would assume that the sensor there is a Hunter, can I just cut the wires and splice them onto this new Sensor and of cause tape them with electrical tape
Asked by: Link
You are better off running wires all the way to timer. The sensor will work better.

Hard Wired Rain/Freeze Sensor is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 33.

I didn't find that out until after I ran the wire through my eave, attic and down the wall to my timer! Fortunately Home Deport didn't require I remove and return the wire! Therefore I highly recommend that you test the sensor switch BEFORE you install it. Either use a conductivity meter or simply temporarily wire it in and test it while it's in your hand not on the eave or gutter.

It is not yet installed - but I've installed the same a year ago and I expect the new one to work like the first -perfect. I have 2 sprinkler systems installed - the second is new and only for shrubs and flowers but needs a rain sensor too.
