    Hey guys,

    I am getting some strange behaviors on my zones recently. I have 9 zones and the watering should be done by the time I wake up. However the last few times the system has run, zones 6 or 7 have been running when I wake up. I know the cycle had completed already because zones 8 and 9 are wet. Seems like the timer is running through all the zones then starting again in zone 6 or 7. I only have 1 start time on the program and have confirmed no other start times. There something I am missing? I have been just manually turning off the program onces this happens.

    On some clocks, multiple start times can be programed for zones, as well as
    per program. Check that & the other programs to see if you've got a
    "phantom" start time. Some times, it's best to pull the plug, remove the
    battery and let it sit for a while, then re-program. Good luck.:)
