Title: Need opinions on placing my outdoor sensors
Post by: Canon1a on April 18, 2005, 02:48:46 AM
I want to permanently mount my outdoor sensors.  My first question is, what schedule PVC should I use.  I am thinking about using 1" or should I go larger?  Secondly, I have a pitched roof  |/\  I want to mount the pole on the side of the house.  Must I go above the ridge or is it okay to just get above the rain gutter?  I was going to mount the rain collector at the top of the pole, but LaCrosse says it should be mounted 2 - 3' above the ground.  This would block the collector from any rain from the south or east.  I was also going to mount the windspeed/wind direction at the top of the pole.  I was also going to mount the Thermo-Hygro on the pole, below the rain gutter.  I have the WS-2310.  Are there any suggestions of changes I should make?

Thanks in advance for any help.
