This kinda interesting. When we took over this property 7 years ago the irrigation wasn't working on these media. So I rigged up battery powered controllers on the seven valves on three different medias. Well this last winter my son found all the intial wiring and we hooked on one of these new battery powered controllers. This makes programming and sprinkler checks go a lot faster. That big bus in the second picture is about half way along the strip. We had to use walkie talkie for the hook up. These are obviously latching selenoids. The only problem is the seventh one is just a little toooo far and it won't latch up. But we got six working. When the city came in and put in stop lights on the other end apparently they cut the lines to the controller that is on the side...we was't caring for property then. You know that gas don't look very good since I killed all the weeds
