    Why only a junction box? What about the exposed romex?

    Yes, and you would be surprised how often I see it.

    I'll give it credit for being UF cable, but exposed power-wire connections are just so &%$#@* sleazy. I think I've seen the same controller hooked to lamp cord plugged into an outdoor outlet, with the connections twisted and taped.

    How the hell did you determine that? I can't see any markings on it, perhaps I am blind? That could be any type of romex ... 14/2 wg nm-b would be my guess. In either event, it should be in conduit, UF or not.

    Exposed non-metallic cable, be it UF or not, just doesn't trip the outrage alarm like exposed power-wire connections, which could invite curious children to danger.

    Zone #1 missing nozzle at head. Water lands right on the rain sensor.
    No wonder the other 23 zones look dry. :laugh:

    Two zones have been valved twice to address leaking diaphragms by the previous sprinkler tech...:confused:

    Even I was guilty of the "add a downstream valve" fix in the bad old days. :cry:
