    well yeah... we have to! How else are we going to inefficiently irrigate our millions of sq ft of lush green turf, fill out pools and wash our german luxury cars!?! Besides.... I thought that all of you liberal central CA hippies up there were all for sharing the earth's resources..... :laugh:

    Ever since the best Mexican restaurant in the United States closed down in Bakersfield, I no longer enter California.

    once the health department made them change their fryolator oil, the food lost all its character

    Just a little update for dan

    ( Not trying to sound to be rude, really!)

    Again I appreciate your info you gave me!

    I just wanted to let you know the controller is 'somewhat' a stand alone controller. It does work without the the weatherstation


    After the info you gave me last night I was able to email my boss> my boss email the HO> email received back by midnight. I rushed out there at 6:40 this morning from the shop out to his house to ' swap ' the faceplate as he was leaving for 2 weeks on vacation tomorrow. ( Mind you 45 min from my install I was doing)

    As I drove up the irrigation system was running and on the last zone.
    After reviewing the logs . It ran each zone for 10 minutes.. ( This is why I said somewhat- even though I had some of the zones as vast differences in the programming, each zone was only 10 min)

    At the moment 10 min is just fine. ( the rotors on this sytem given everything to factor in ) can really only accept about 15 min of run time.

    Again I told the guy he really won't notice a difference in conservation vs a properly programmed up system with budget % change each month ( like the SMART line does) But he wants to know how to use this controller as the landscapers just installed this on the HOA of this area and he just became the new HOA pres. ( which is weird because the contractor of this area lives here, I guess they don't want to deal with billing)
