Hunter Industries announces all AC powered controllers will carry the WaterSense label when paired with the appropriate Solar Sync sensor. Using onsite weather data, the Solar Sync sensor adjusts daily run times on Hunter controllers to maximize water savings.

Hunter is the first irrigation manufacturer to carry the WaterSense label on such a wide array of smart controllers under the strict testing guidelines put in place by the EPA. Controllers to carry the WaterSense label include Hunter’s X-Core, 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.

“This certification is an example of Hunter’s commitment of providing water efficient products to our customers that integrate seamlessly across multiple controller platforms,” states Jeff Kremicki, Product Strategy Manager for Hunter Industries. “The Solar-Sync is compatible with all Hunter AC powered controllers offering an effective and economical way for customers to save water.”

With proper installation, programming, and maintenance, homeowners and businesses can use WaterSense labeled controllers to help save billions of gallons of water annually.
