I’m trying to find out whether or not I can use Rachio controller with my existing Melnor 4 zone.

Basically I use a non wireless 4 zone controller and wondering how I can adapt this to the Rachio controller

Don’t think you will have any luck with that type of system since the valves and clock are all built into the unit.


I basically need a valve system to attach to my hoses that the rachio unit will speak to.

Any recommendations?


I don’t know what you system looks like, but you could buy a manifold system. There are a number of different manufacturers out there. I personally like the Hunter valves, but Orbit and others are out there as well.
