I just hooked this little Antelco eZyvalve 4 Zone Valve Box to my Gen 2 Rachio. I look forward to seeing how reliable and durable it is. They do have some replaceable parts. I may have to get another for more drip zones! Which may mean having to upgrade from an 8 zone to a 12 or 16 zone controller.
We also just planted our vegetables from inside starts.
