    I am redoing a front yard for someone who bought a forclosed house. they currently live out of town and will not be moving in for about another month. We are putting sod down in the front lawn since it is small (+/- 2500 sqf). Anywhy what i want to know is if i can set the sprinkler system to run 2 times a day. there are switched that say 2nd and 3rd. is that for 2 or 3 watering a day? i have a picture of the control box. we only have one company here and he is a d bag and wont even return calls for 2-3 weeks and i dont have that kind of time.

    No, 2 means every other day, 3 means every third day.
    You will have to set up a different programs on a, b or c to do what you want.

    Each program has four start times.

    don't forget cycle and soak and overlapping start times.

    I can't believe that I actually used to install those controllers.
    Jeez, I'm old. :cry:

    You do it by pushing the start time buttons up top , then use the arrows. . Directions should be on the door.

    Great clock in my book. Easy as pie to install pigtails on.

    They said the clock was right above the workbench. I never saw no clock.
