    If you have to ask that question, you aren't ready to do irrigation.

    The proper order is:

    1. Research
    2. Bid for Work

    Not

    1. Bid For Work
    2. Research

    Seriously... yes and no. You can always use doublers, decoders, battery operated controllers, etc. :rolleyes:

    I bet you would get better answers if your posts were readable.

    My original post was that your question was either beyond "duh simple" or just plain missunderstood due to your poor writing skills.

    If it your really asking that what I think you are then you have no business micky mousing some Git-R-Dun sprinkler system that gives reputable companies like us a bad name.

    You won't have to run a new wire for that zone..the new valve will have two wires attached right to the top. you attach those two wires to the timer on it's own zone..One goes to the common ground..That all the other wires are attached to..usually white. The other is attached to the zone that is not being used(under a little screw)
    You will also need a drip filter, water pressure reguator for the drip hook up after the valve and before you start the dripline out.
