Condo complex where I used to have a L/S maint. contract about '88 thru '95. Somebody came along recently and "upgraded" the controllers. They called me out this week to see if I could sort out various irrigation issues. Wet spots, dry spots, leaks, etc. Exhibit A. This ESP-SMT ( indoor model) replaced an old ESP 8. Nice, creative use of a weatherproof outlet cover. Exhibit B. Sensor installed on the north side of the building under the dripline of a redwood tree. Exhibit C. This one replaced an old, reliable Irritrol Dial AB. In a stair well next to the door to the parking garage. Exhibit D. And the sensor? Installed on the north side of a balcony wall and shaded by the building itself on the west. Nice. I thought it could be that the sensors were effecting the scheduling, but when I went to check, I found that neither clock was set up with zone info. All were set to specific run times, 8 min. for shrubs, 20 min for lawns 5 days/ week. Sun or shade, no difference.
