Time to ETo
« on: March 27, 2019, 02:02:25 PM »
Yeah, Some birds will nag the heck out of you... I get the message... Snow Gauge to Storage... ETo to Active..
Couple of things... remember the Canvas is #30 Grass...Check the PTFE wafer... they WILL stick to the ceramic, if not replaced at least annually.. more than one season is NOT recommended..  They can mess up the ceramic surface and be a pain to clean up.

Just used my last, and awaiting price from Lucy at WeatherYourWay,
which I'll pass on..  all I've got are 2015 prices... heh... :twisted:

Here are the current 2019 Spring prices for ETo "Consumables"...
Evaporation wafers…$36 for a can of 5 or $8 each wafer

ETo #30 canvas and a wafer for $13.00
The PTFE wafer is definitely a consumable. the Canvas is not... it can be cleaned and reused.. over and over, if done 'gently'.... I replace the original (2012) in 2017, and am still on the 'second'... but the wafer MUST be replaced seasonally, or you're asking for big irritation and bad data.
