You know that i wouldn't use a fresh solenoid boss, the solenoid i used is a retreival from a replaced valve and is the same solenoid that i use for all of my testing.

As i said before, my test may not fit your sceanario but it does tell me that running the controller when the water is off may not be as bad as we might think.

30 mins of dry run did very little to change the resistance of the solenoid and it cooled off still being within working tolarances.

Without voltage + resistance measurements, high or low amperage measurements only tells you that something is wrong, not what is wrong.
