    I'm not complaining.

    It makes a dang nice pic to put on my website and to use in my brochures.
    I will admit that taking 6 Walker hoppers off of there per mow did suck at times.

    just a little background. many years ago we installed a monument for a new development, at the time it was JUST the monument, road wasn't' finished, model not built but the HAD to have that monument in/landscaped/watered. we did it, I installed the lower pro-c clock and the above rain sensor. Years go by, we were never called back to finish... got a call from the management company needing irrigation service up I go. Well what's happened is contractor 2 (hopefully in order to make a $) installed a 2nd proc on top of mine, BUT shared my backflow!!!! Well of course nothing was working right because both were running @ same time and he totally butchered my rain sensor to work on both by wiring to the commons. So now there is 1 clock, my originally system only had 3 zones and he had 4 plenty of room in the proc

    He also installed another clock up the road, who can name the wiring problem the fastest?

    Jumper still in place. I'm beginning to think that that's the scumbag irrigator's way of getting an extra service call.
    I recently worked on one where the service tech hooked the wireless rain sensor power wires into the 110 pigtail. :rolleyes:

    This is pretty common for me too.

    Also see alot of idiots not hooking up the provided green ground wire with the external transformer on the terminal marked ground on the pro-c

    Jumper wire is usually the same color. WTF is romex doing in the low voltage compartment?
