first want to thank you for your quick feedback really appreciate it. I will be reciving rachio tomorrow by delivery.
So those two black wires on left of the controller pic, come from the pump relay. So I belive your initial suggestion was correct? You edited it I was wondering if you could re post it? Let me know what you think, because those two wires are the only communication between the controller and the pump relay/pump.
Also this was rachio response in email just to be transparent. But your initial suggestion seems doable to me unless there is some voltage or load problem on the rachio device? This is the email response from Rachio:
"I understand you are looking for wiring guidance
from your old controller to the Rachio controller. Upon reviewing your
ticket, you mentioned that you have a pump, a pump relay and a master
valve. I have looked over your wiring images, and it looks like it is
too advanced for our controller. The controller is not be capable of
powering the pump, the master valve and then the zones. It is only made
to handle a pump or a mster valve. Feel free to consult an electrician
and/or in irrigation specialist at your own discretion. Here is our Warranty Information otherwise. Let us know if there is anything else we can help with. Thanks!"
I was honestly pretty disappointed with the response slash capability as my set up is pretty common where I live. But with your suggestion you made me dream again!
Can you please re suggest your initial suggestion? or let me know what you guys think
