I recently moved to a new property with an 8 zone irrigation system. Zones 1-7 functioned properly on the old Rain Bird controller. I could not get Zone 8 to function and I can visually see sprinkler heads that have not turned on. I ended up upgrading to a Rachio 3 and intended to figure this out on my own. Zone 8 still does not function.
My before and after setup is as follows:
The wiring is confusing.
There are two black lines with the colored wires within. There’s also what appears to be a Hunter Rain Sensor on the roof with 3 lines (one not terminated).
Black grouping line one
- Red = Zone 1
- Blue = Zone 2
- Green = Zone 3
- Yellow = Zone 4
- Brown = Zone 5
- Black = Zone 6
- White = Zone 8
Black grouping line two
- Red = Connected to rain sensor
- Blue = Zone 7
- Green = Not stripped for termination
- White = Not stripped for termination
- One line to the common
- One line to grouping line two’s red line
- One Not stripped for termination
Any thoughts on how to set this up properly?
