    Basically you do not have circuits to all valves and you have to figure out the best way to do it.

    Double up between valves, run new wires or both.

    BTW. Running new wire is not that hard.

    A couple weeks ago I came across my 2nd doubler experience ever. Of course this system had 6 effin doublers on a 25 zone system not labeled. 4 of them were her garden which required vastly different programming schedules to it's counterpart zone

    Afer this I have decided that this product is one of the most hack solutions for any kind of wiring issue out there.

    Resolving the issue.. ..Add a zone ....and the Tek13 splittler is by far way better then the doubler

    Mitch .... I use doubler as a generic expression for using 1 wire as 2 .... i.e. doubling the wire count. I don't use the "Doubler" product, never have, but I have used the add-a-zone on rare occasions where running new wire was out of the question.

    Who makes the tek 13 splitter? Did a search and came up with zilch.
