Using onsite weather data, the Solar Sync sensor adjusts daily run times on Hunter controllers to maximize water savings. Controllers to carry the WaterSense label include Hunter's XCore, Pro-C, I-Core and ACC product families. Previously installed controllers with Solar Sync compatibility can be converted to meet WaterSense requirements by adding the Solar Sync, eliminating the need to replace the entire controller.

The angled fnal position of an installed Edgetite spike resists frost heave while adding strength and longevity to a brick project, the company says.
