I have used the weathermatic controller. I was wandering if any of you have used the hunter retrofit ET? Is it any good? What are the pluses and minuses?

I personally use the WM smartline system on all of my jobs. The Hunter deal is ok, but it's still not as good as the WM controller. More modules, and units, rather than a stand alone controller. WM all the way for ease of installation and performance!

I've only installed one so far, a Weathermatic Smartline in a 22 unit condo complex. I like a lot of the features, maybe enough to install one here at home. Looking forward to the handheld remote that is supposed to be out early summer. So far so good.

I don't know. I havn't serviced or installed a hunter ET system yet. I like the weathermatic set up, but it's hard to get w.m. in my area. I was looking for an alternative to w.m. Any suggestions would be great.

I'm doing a landscape for a lady who owns a small commercial property, and subbing the irrigation system. (Four zones.) She is absolutely convinced that she wants a Hunter ET or the functional equivalent. When I suggested that such a thing might never pay for itself on a small property, she said that didn't matter - she's interested in it from a conservation standpoint, and she can afford to pay for it.

What do you guys think about that?
