    Yup... a big conglomerate that has subsidiaries in many different lines... often being counter-productive. Kinda like Toro. :laugh:

    I meant to write "biggest"... it came out as "because".. brain fart I guess...

    Anyway, yeah... same Johns Manville. The manual told you how to use it for watering or misting poultry too as I recall..

    I ran across it in '84 or '85. I replaced it with an Irritrol clock... probably a Dial AB, because those were good enough for most jobs and easy enough for homeowners to handle..

    Believe it: I wandered into many cold calls that had that clock, and knew instantly what the rest of the system was going to be like. :dizzy:

    How about the POS rainbird ISA 304?

    my wonderful dad bought it this spring at a big box store.. :hammerhead:

    4 zones, Can only have 1 program in use at a time. If you change programs it defaults the controller. Get in the program review and bump the wrong button, it defaults the controller. :wall

    Its getting replaced in the spring! No exceptions!
