    I would agree they fail sooner and most of the stuff is crap but has anyone else noticed that the ruber cap on the orbit pgp knock off does a much better job of keeping the crap out of the allen screw?

    Looks like a re-branded MP1000 to me.

    What does the lower half of the picture look like? Will it put you into orbit?

    It's the same one as the Eco-Rotator sold in other (non-domestic) Hunter markets. Maybe Orbit bought the rights to it here.

    First thing is Orbit is not the best. BUT, I remember reading here that the iternals are the same as Hunter PGP.

    Why do you need a rain/freeze sensor in Houston? You are not going to freeze
    (not the norm there) and I hope it is due to the high price of grey water in houston? The water sucks there.

    But shound like you have a wiring issue or bad sensor issue. I know this forum is not the best on helping DIY / homeowner here.

    Orbit is the most pathetic thing to happen to the irrigation manufacturing industry since king innovation auto drain valves.

    BTW: Anyone remember Armstrong LTG of Los Angeles? They made dinky little spray heads that were a sort of olive green color. They were pretty common here in the 70's-80's.
