Is there a pre made zone chart for irrigation controllers?

I am looking for one similar to the charts found in most controllers. I want to make my charts the same for all customers

Thank you

go to a letter maker..they should hook you up.

pretty smart if you ask me....it also has a place to list times....is that what you are asking?

Garth, they enjoy giving a guy a hard time around here.

Far as I know you'll have to design your own.

Nice truck!

Hey, he lists hockey as an interest! Leave the poor guy alone or at least give him a straight answer - I know it's tough, but you can do it:laugh:

I make these and put them in a heavy sheet protector with some velcro and stick them in the clock

Good point.

Give 'em Heck, but at least answer the question?

No such animal as a generic zone spreadsheet. The ones I make are customized for each client based on the controller they own.

Mine too, get a laminator.

Actually I made one I use as a template. Not in Excel, but in Word. It changes, depending on whether I'm making it for the client or for me.

Mine might include valve location, size, and type for example.

The only detail the customer really needs for programming is sprinkler type and plant type.

I guess you could go into soil type, sun exposure, etc. Those kinds of details might justify charging extra for a report.

Just get yourself familiar with creating tables in Word and it's not hard.
Two small examples, both simple systems.

One for the homeowner to make copies and fill in the blanks, the other for my own use.

Oh, BTW, I'm very happy with my Staples laminator.

Here is a couple of pages from my management packet. First is schedule for an ICC, second is water usage data for the schedule. All the dynamic data changes automatically based on changes to the schedule (eg. cascade updates).

That's a nice, complete call-out, Kiril. :clapping:

Thanks for the details on the zone chart. We have Water Restrictions here that required us to change our controllers a number of times already over the past year. Not to many of my customers are able to change their controllers by themselves. Good job security for me. I am trying to make it easier to do the changeover. The last time they restricted us they gave 3 days notice. It was impossible to make the changeovers that quick.

The truck is a 48 and is almost finished. Just needs the bed re installed.

Is it a Chev or GMC? That's the first year for the "modern" look, I had a
'47 ton & a half with the bezel headlights. The 'hydro-vac" brakes were
interesting; I once blew a seal in the booster & caught fire into the engine!

Hydro vac is not on it , I have updated with new brakes cylinders etc.
