    the first group is a site that will have two systems on for the veggie garden (3rd pic) and one for the landscape.

    the other pics are from a site that we went to last night to adjust the clock but we had no water. i discovered that the guy who i hired as a service tech (who quit) hooked the pump start relay control wire to the valve test terminal instead of the P/MV terminal. So it sent power to the pump constantly and it dead headed and melted the threads on the drop pipe and the pump fell off. we were able to pull it out by the wires and reset the pump.

    I really wish my boss would start getting into that and away from those ugly pigtails/extension cords.

    I assume he will be pulling his wire into a separate conduit than your low voltage wire?

    And using grey conduit pipe, I would hope. We've cut-thru white pipe and poly only to find wire that could have fried us. :dizzy:

    A disconnect box would be the best of both worlds. Hard-wired, with an ability to "pull the plug" if ever need be.

    The big metal box to the right is a breaker panel, each clock will have its own circuit breaker.
