Rachio currently does NOT support Master Valve enable/disable per station like older non smart controllers
My 15 year old Hunter Pro C like my older mechanical controller before it provided the ability to enable or disable the Master valve per station. A very useful feature that Ranchio does NOT support
Set Pump/Master Valve Operation
The default is for all stations to have the
master valve/pump start circuit ON. The
master valve/pump start can be set ON
or OFF by station, regardless of which
program the station is assigned.
To program pump operation:
1. Turn the dial to SET PUMP
2. Press the or buttons to toggle the
master valve/pump start ON or OFF for
the specific station.
This feature is extremely useful feature to have when an installer uses one valve on a manifold to feed another manifold in another location !!!!
