Designed for sewer/storm drain diversion control, the RainSwitch will detect 1/10th on an inch of rainfall, which assures the initial run-off will flow to the sewer system. This first run-off is typically high in contaminants and bacteria and therefore needs to flow to the sewer system for proper treatment. Once the first 1/10th of an inch has fallen, the RainSwitch will trip a relay which is connected to a diversion system, directing the subsequent run off to the storm drain.
The RainSwitch Control System is composed of the RainSwitch, a Pilot Station, and typically a Butterfly Valve.
Other uses include Irrigation Control, Retractable Roof Control, Rainwater Capture/Collection Systems, and Cistern Control.
