The DIY Sunset Measured Irrigation Controller Kit  is the Sunset Measured Irrigation Controller in kit form with everything you need except the evaporator. The price of the DIY Sunset MI Controller Kit is less than half the price of the Sunset MI Controller.


  • Completely automatic
  • Smart irrigation controller – the irrigation is controlled by the prevailing weather conditions rather than a program
  • Use for gravity feed or pressurised irrigation (water supply pressure at least 10 kPa)
  • Use for sprinkler or drip irrigation
  • Use for pressure compensating drippers or non pressure compensating drippers
  • You can adjust the water usage by adjusting the control dripper
  • The water usage is directly proportional to the net evaporation rate
    (this is a unique feature of measured irrigation)
  • The irrigation starts at sunset each day provided that the water level is below the float switch
  • Responds appropriately to an unexpected heat wave
  • When it rains, water enters the evaporator and delays the start of the next irrigation
  • The water usage is independent of the water supply pressure
    (this is a unique feature of measured irrigation)
  • Uses much less water without affecting the yield
  • Simple and low tech and so easy to assemble and fewer things to go wrong
  • You can leave your irrigation application unattended for weeks on end
