We have 2 of them, one of them is when they first came out. One is new last year. On the older one we have range issues and it eats through batteries. The new one is great with both. I have noticed that the new one has a few different things come onscreen when doing different tasks.

Does the older one need a software update or something?
Thanks
Raven2510,
Thanks for the question. I am getting an accurate answer from the Product Manager and will respond when I get it.

Size of Valve = Problem

Ron (et al),

Turned out the valve was OK (fond nothing during breakdown and troubleshooting).

My tech found that the property F.M. guy had changed the spray heads to rotary nozzles and lowered flow. I believe this flow reduction along with the original installers bushing down so quickly after the valve caused the flutter.

We went with a 3/4" valve and the problem was gone.

Thanks for your assistance.

Raven2510,
I spoke with the Product Manager. There is not a way to update the firmware on those units. I will Private Message you so we can work this with the Product Manager off-line to see what can be done in your case.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
