My pass-fail the BS test is how much effort you put into the final appearance.So as a few of you know we decided a year ago to get into irrigation repair and maint. My son who just graduated HS will be attending our local CC to get a small business degree and this is what he wants to do.
We have done some light work like replacing and adjusting heads and fixing some small leaks. He will be replacing my moms backflow which is fairly easy.
A friend of mine has offered to let us work on his system. The first thing we are going to do is replace his controller. He has one of those old ones with the pull out knobs. We are going to replace it with a Hunter Pro C controller.
For someone with very limited experience but who catches on to things very quickly how long should this take? From what i understand its taking the old one off and then matching up the zone wires with the new one.
Wires should be numbered, and neatly arranged as possible, not perfect but if you strive for perfection, the end results will be top shelf.
A benchmark card with all of your electrical values placed in the cabinet door. Multiple commons should be labeled telling which valves they support, really important when troubleshooting in the future.
Best of luck to you guys
