Since my system was installed just over a year ago in Houston, I have experienced more rain fade than I have traditionally been accustomed to. As a 10+ year customer, I realize that severe rain storms will block the signal, but I get pixelation and complete signal loss during what I would call normal to moderate rain showers. I got to thinking about my install, and the installer used an existing non-SWM 8 way splitter in my attic to split the signal to all the outlets in my house. I am only using 2 jacks at the moment, so I am wondering if buying a SWM approved 2 way splitter would help with my rain fade issues. The system works great otherwise - is upgrading the splitter worth pursuing?
