Why not just keep a controller in stock?
Tell the customer it's done for and needs to be replaced, this is your price.

Repairing a main component of the sprinkler system seems more important to me then make sure a sprinkler head works??

having a station master and a remote control are 2 vital things an irrigation tech should have.

(vs maybe a less convienient 521 locating and then manual bleeding)


irrig8r Im going to check that out, thanks
Just take a working transfomer and wire 1 lead to common, the other to zone wire. But as others have said " sell em a damn clock"
