D is for drip, is all you need to know.

Some drip is very-low-flow compared to common emitter tubing, and on a well-water supply, couldn't run on its own without serious pump cycling problems. This is where a drip zone running concurrently with a sequence of rotor zones comes into play.

And the reason I have my 3 drip zones running at the same time.

If they're very-low-flow, what are the zone valves?

I guess my headaches with the ICC have just been in the learning process. It was a lack of understanding and a very... less than helpful user manual... that frustrated me from the beginning. No one around here had any knowledge of them and it was hard to get help. I have the customer barking down my ear etc etc etc...


I wish I had time to describe the entire situation... one frustration after another on a poorly maintained system over the years. Finally new management is hardcore about getting things "right" and making the place look as good as it should.

I'm working through it though!

My whole purpose of trying to run zones simultaneously is to cut down run time. The other reason I got on here to ask was simply to learn about the ICC and it capabilities... I figured if it were capable of doing that, it was capable of much more.

I'm still not convinced that it's not got some other issues, though. I'm sure those will rear their ugly head as I learn more and get everything back in shape.

As an example of how poorly this system has been maintained (by someone other than I) ---- It is two we replaced 32 heads yesterday... that's probably about 12-15% of the heads. I imagine there are that many more to go before this thing is back up to efficient operation.

Most of the drips on this property appear to run with the zone in that area already. I only have found one station that runs a drip without firing the zone in that area at the same time.

Are they even valved separately?

I don't think so. At this point, I have not found the valves one way or another to know for sure.

Hopefully when I start pulling boxes because most of them are full of water I will figure out where those are.

My 2 cents, the ICC was my go to controller for years. Rock solid with ample features to cover almost any scenario. Course, it still uses the stupid "program" approach instead of per valve scheduling, but at the price point it was top of the pack for its time.

Are there any medium-end clocks that offer ISP?

Don't know. What do you consider a medium end clock, in terms of price?
