    Over the past year I have started using the ESP LX for larger sites after having many problems with hunters reliability. I like them ok but last week I installed a new one that is the LXME and it is doing some weird stuff. It seems to change the order of watering dispute the wiring. After leaving the site today I realized it was watering the zones with the longest run times first then working it's way to the shortest run times. Anyone know why it does this?

    Did you personally fool with the clock or was it delegated to employees? I've found most problems, especially with the "smart" ones, have been pilot error. No offense, Green.

    I programed it myself and I don't doubt that I could have effed it up but I cleared the program and started over two times. This clock has some new features for shorting total system run times but it needs a flow sensor. It was a hard day and this was the last stop so I was a little fried.

    Check the "FloManager" under advanced settings and make sure it is set to off.

    It is not a problem with the controller. Just read the manual, this is how the ME operates. Read manual, I am to lazy to type it all out.

    That's what I thought I just dent have time last night to read the whole thing. It just had me nervous that there was I problem because when I tried to run a manual cycle it jumped to station 8 and I thought there was something wrong.
