ET Water is web based so you can access it from anywhere that you have an internet connection and a browser.

For sites with 22 stations and less I'd seriously consider the Rain Bird ESP-SMTe. It will go up to 22 stations now and you can't beat the price for local weather based control.
Words of wisdom from someone who obviously has never operated a Rain Master and seen the options available.Beats your Maxi-Com to hell.

Hey... my post wasn't meant to be hostile. The guy asked for opinions and I gave him mine. Sorry you had to go and get all butt hurt over it! I didn't say anything about Rain Master, good or bad! And where in there did I mention anything about Maxi-Com? Maxi-Com is old technology that will very likely be replaced real soon. ET Water and Hydropoint are coming up quick as real contenders in the market.

Apparently not..... but given that you're a Rain Master REP I can see why you get all butt hurt when somebody doesn't suggest RM as the solution to everything

Sh!t.... those days are loooooong gone. Anymore I'd just be happy to get a free screwdriver out of a rep..... come to think of it I haven't seen a rep from ANY company in about 3 years now.

Agree, what the hell happened in marketing, did the bean counters move in? When I first started, like you, reps and branches took good care of us; they wanted our business, and most of them got it, not because of the hats or the burgers, but genuine interest and knowledge of the product. That's sad for the pups that it's over.
