Of course, i should have read the post first

Remove the jumper on the sensor terminals. (Yes, I've been seeing this a lot lately)
Buy better rain sensor.
Learn the difference between pore and pour.

Sorry, I used Hunter motorized heads.

I was told that orbit was hunter. Just a cheeper made product.

Anyway,

thanks for the replys, I will give it a try to let it soak up more water.

maybe it just takes a while.


Glad I made a funny

Hmmm... never heard of a "motorized head". What kind of horsepower do they have? Torque ratio?

Orbit heads are a, as you said, "cheeper made" product. Both in cost and quality. But that's not saying much with the current problems with the Hunter heads. Orbit products WILL work, and they FAIL faster than Hunter, Rainbird, Toro, Irritrol. (well maybe not Toro )

This just freaked me out. Orbit is marketing their stream rotor as a MP rotator. Provided it is their rotator. I know hunter makes the Voyager II for Orbit but I didn't know about their crappy stream nozzles. Check it out:
