Customer Question
Do the controllers need...

Do the controllers need to be replaced? Ours seems to be going crazy, watering at different times than set

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

About 2 weeks, sometimes it runs for the time set, on the day set, and then it runs for double the time on different days.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Is it very complicated? If so, I will have to have someone else do it.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Zone two did not work for about the same time and the solenoid was replaced. After that it worked manually, but not by the controller.
