    Ok guys I have decided that the RC 1260B is toast, kids must have opened it up and twisted the zone wheel the opposite way therefore breaking off all of the tangs inside, just great!

    So I know this has been debated over and over and I would search but dont have the time to weed through X is better than Y. What I have here is currently a 6 zone system with a new pump start relay. What I need is a controller atleast in the 8 zone preferably higher arena. Must be commercial and must come with a lockable cabinet either metal or plastic, not stainless too much $$. Remote control, etc is not needed but the ability to be expanded on is definately necessary. Thanks fellas

    Weathermatic SL1600 with SLW20 weather monitor. pays for itself in less than a year on a commercial property. Never have to do seasonal adjustments, amazing.

    Rainbird mod. It also has a lock on it to prevent someone screwing with it.

    Everybody will scream "pricey!", but the Rain Master brand has some stuff
    worth looking at, especially if Weather-Matic SLs are being considered.
    The SL is a nice clock, tho.rainmaster.com

    My personal favorite for a sub $200 controller. Very flexible, expandable, reliable.

    i may get chewed out for this but we have had much success with the Irritrol Total Control. 5 year warranty and the lockable plastic cabinet is pretty durable.
