In this case, I expect someone, prolly one of the HO from the HOA, went into the controller to change the start time because they didn't like irrigation going off a 12 PM after the controller defaulted due to a power loss. I also see this type of daily irrigation from lawnboys who don't have a clue how to irrigate a site.
Maybe that's what happened with this controller because I had to flip the breaker on. Could be something different causing the grass to thin. I was conviced it was the way they were watering the grass. We had a long drought last summer that fried everything that wasn't irrigated.
