Re: [wuhu_software_group] Re: La Crosse WS-2310 Rain Collector
- Thanks Tom, been there, done that. It's as clean as it can be inside - no dirt, leaves, webs or bugs. Today I estimate we had 1/2 inch of rain and it measured .02". I'm beginning to think it's the sensor/transmitter. All 3 of my rain collectors pass the reed switch continuity test. Maybe it's just time for a new, complete station. I'll have to take the wife out to dinner and a movie first!-- Kris----- Original Message -----From: toms-weather@...Sent: Thursday, July 30, 2009 10:11 AMSubject: [wuhu_software_group] Re: La Crosse WS-2310 Rain Collector
When you opened it up, did you notice ANY signs of spiders? Even though you could actuate it by hand, one or two good strong webs may be enough to prevent rainfal from actuating it. I used to have an occational problem, but now I spray the whole thing inside and out avoiding electrical connections, a couple times a year (spring and summer) with Ortho Home Defense to keep these little guys away.
