    Service order states:

    Sprinkler system didn't come on today.

    It fires up manually, but when I test the start time switch it refused to come on.Old girl is almost 20. I unplugged it did some service work, plugged in and it fired just fine and dandy..

    I remove every J4 or whichever it is to take away that 15 sec delay, used for pumps to prime.
    This Really does speed up repair calls.

    I dont have but a small handfull of customers that have vision I's left out there. They were a real
    solid controller. Gave very few problems. Very simple to learn.

    I always thought the Visions were very user friendly too. But why do the field wires shock you when the controller is off?;)
     
  5. I never cared much for the vision. I believe they had a hot common which is why you got shocked. Can't remember though cuz I was installing Richdel timers. (The high end ones)

    A hot common, maybe that's why they fried so often.
