    Just installed an esp smt. I have also installed new sod.

    #1 I have set the controller to run for newly planted turf for a 14 day window 3 times a day. Will it only run 3 times a day for the window I set between 2am and 8am for the regular watering cycle? or will it run during the day?

    #3 Will it over ride the rain sensor? Or do I have to manually turn off the sensor for each zone until it is done with the watering in time frame? I am worried I will get a little rain it will turn the system off for a day or so.

    #2 When you adjust for the controller to automatically shut off when the temperature gets colder to a certain degrees... is this an average for the day, the low point for the day, or the temperature during the watering window I have set? Rainbird rep did not know the answer on this one.
  2. RB rep needs to get after it. So cal landscape and jim lewis if he hasn't totally soured on this forum hopefully will weigh in.
