Yup... a big conglomerate that has subsidiaries in many different lines... often being counter-productive. Kinda like Toro.

I meant to write "biggest"... it came out as "because".. brain fart I guess...

Anyway, yeah... same Johns Manville. The manual told you how to use it for watering or misting poultry too as I recall..

I ran across it in '84 or '85. I replaced it with an Irritrol clock... probably a Dial AB, because those were good enough for most jobs and easy enough for homeowners to handle..

Believe it: I wandered into many cold calls that had that clock, and knew instantly what the rest of the system was going to be like.

How about the POS rainbird ISA 304?

my wonderful dad bought it this spring at a big box store..

4 zones, Can only have 1 program in use at a time. If you change programs it defaults the controller. Get in the program review and bump the wrong button, it defaults the controller.

Its getting replaced in the spring! No exceptions!
