OK, I'm at the point where I'm ready to consider controllers for my residential installation. A few specifics: -- Currently 8 zones. 3 spray (2 in turf, 1 in shrubs), 2 rotor (turf), 3 drip (1 bushes, 1 deciduous trees, 1 buried turf techline drip). -- Plan to expand to at least 10 zones. Probably 2 zones to manage dripline for vegetable beds (currently run vegetable beds off hose bib -- got to get them synced up with the rest of the system!). possibly one more turf zone and tree drip zone. so I anticipate needing to expand to 10-12 zones. -- Need to be able to program turf and drips easily for varying seasons (our summers are HOT and dry, our winters may be wet or may be dry). also need to be able to adjust turf zones easily -- we grow bermuda in summer (deep-water once or twice weekly) and overseed rye in winter (frequent short seed watering for a few weeks, then switch to deep-water). -- Need to be able to hand-program timed watering for vegetable beds, in addition to regularly scheduled watering. IE, if i just put in some seedling veggies and want to run the veggie beds, I want to be able to walk over to the controller, tell it to drip the veggie beds for an hour, and be done, without affecting overall programs. -- can install wall, pedestal, outdoor or (with some extra cable-monkeying) indoors. I generally use RB stuff with success... i know many pro installers in our area seem to use irritrol. i also don't know what to think of ID, etc. I realize controllers may mostly a matter of personal preference, etc., but i am looking for thoughts on what's easiest to install, in addition to what's durable, easy to use and most versatile in programming options. Thoughts?
