There's gotta be a reason for preference, you like the ESP, someone else uses nothing but pro C. Gotta be a reason.

I've installed both without issue till now. I have a pro C in front of me right now and think that autoflow is prolly close to right. I talked to the client and she's waffling a bit on her story. I kinda have an idea that it's a programming issue but we'll see late next week.

Thanks for your reply.

Anyone using the Hunter remote will never give it (a Hunter controller) up.

I guess it's an issue of less problems and ease of programming. I must admit though, when Hunter reps denied fault with the PGP, it really turned me off.

Irritrol total control is a good option. It easy to program, about the same price as proc, hold up better to lighting/power surges, and has 5 year trade warranty.

Same reasons a friend of mine gave me.

I must admit I love the hunter for the ROAM.

3 wires to wire in, cheap remotes.

Hunter has rainbird beat when it comes to wireless control. Just saying...

I've hung both and have both remotes...Hunter is at the top.

Try resetting the panel, there should be a reset button on the back of the face. They do that sometimes most of the time if you reset it then it usually takes care of the problem.

After running the full gamut of electrical tests to eliminate electrical issues and manually checking all valves to eliminate the possibility of hydraulic / mechanical issues I went into the programs.

The controller had 2 start times on program A, along with 2 default times of 12:00 am.

B & C were set at default 12:00 am on all four start times.

Even zeroed out, the start times were occupied.

The best part was I used the power prowler only on this site. The testing was fast and the TDR worked through the controller. SWEET!!!
