    Hi all, need some help.

    Pro C is programmed
    mon, wed, fri.
    Zone 1 start 5 am run 15
    zone 2 start 5:30 am run 15
    zone 3 start 6 am run 15
    zone 4 start 6:30 am run 15

    starts up fine, but when zone 4 is finished, its start over on zone 1, like a loop.

    any thoughts,

    need more info let me know

    If you have 4 start times programmed, you are running all of program C at each start time. So, all 4 zones will run 4 times, as fast as possible, since they obviously overlap. You should have one start time for the whole program, not for each zone. Just let the timer fire the zones consecutively. Your entire run time should be 60 min (4 zones x 15 min each.)

    yup. You only need one start time and it will run all four zones.

    Wait, you're in Texas which requires licensing and you don't know this? Hmmmmmm........... :dizzy:

    You could always set your run times for 3.75 minutes per zone and have a poor man's cycle and soak. :cool2:

    it sounds to me you have several start times, go to the controller and turn to the set watering start time and check to see if you have more than one start time, should only be one unless they are watering the beds or something different than the turf.
