    Yeahhhhhhh .... I pulled all but two zone control wires, because thats all we use for the front of the property, and people will program 10 minutes for everything. It has a Hunter wireless rain sensor but someone pulled the 24vac wires and I didnt feel like opening a can of worms. But on the bright side ill be working on different MCd's properties for the next three days, should have some more pics, almost guaranteed:rolleyes:.

    That one I posted is for that MCD's on Redmond way at the end of 520. At least yours has a door.
    Gotta love that slogan on the inside of the door, "programming is easy, just follow the rain bow" ::hammerhead::

    I saw one of these one time and it had a local installers name on it. Permanent like, not a decal or sticker. Made it look like this company made it. It seemed odd because this installer had been pretty much exclusive Weathermatic. If I remember right it was simple enough once you figured out the correct steps to programming.

    The likely back story to that rotor is this:

    Irrigation Contractor: "That landscape architect wants it installed 'per spec,' I will show him 'per spec."

    Check out this awesome repair. They had repaired the mainline in 2 locations like this and laterals in 2 spots as well. Wonder why the pressure was so bad? I could hear the water screaming through these little sections when I walked over them. Funny, when I replaced them with 1" pipe, the system worked better. Go figure...
