Yeahhhhhhh .... I pulled all but two zone control wires, because thats all we use for the front of the property, and people will program 10 minutes for everything. It has a Hunter wireless rain sensor but someone pulled the 24vac wires and I didnt feel like opening a can of worms. But on the bright side ill be working on different MCd's properties for the next three days, should have some more pics, almost guaranteed.

Would have been very easy to do a exterior mount, I guess that the last guy must have lost the door for this particular unit, so he had to mount it inside.
that is one gay clock...literally

That one I posted is for that MCD's on Redmond way at the end of 520. At least yours has a door.
Gotta love that slogan on the inside of the door, "programming is easy, just follow the rain bow" ::

I saw one of these one time and it had a local installers name on it. Permanent like, not a decal or sticker. Made it look like this company made it. It seemed odd because this installer had been pretty much exclusive Weathermatic. If I remember right it was simple enough once you figured out the correct steps to programming.

The likely back story to that rotor is this:

Irrigation Contractor: "That landscape architect wants it installed 'per spec,' I will show him 'per spec."

Check out this awesome repair. They had repaired the mainline in 2 locations like this and laterals in 2 spots as well. Wonder why the pressure was so bad? I could hear the water screaming through these little sections when I walked over them. Funny, when I replaced them with 1" pipe, the system worked better. Go figure...
