I bought the Rachio 3 almost a year ago and just now getting to this project. I started installing this system then, as with almost everything I try to do on my own, hit a dead end so I found this forum. I understand this has been posted a few times, but I’m not quite understanding the exact process to get this to set up right. I have (“had”) an Intermatic Timer system, pump (well water), with what I believe was 4 zones or index valves? … I’m not exactly sure how that system was set up.
Running power to the rachio doesn’t look like it’ll be a problem … but I’m understanding correctly, with my current system, I’ll need a pump start relay to handle the pump, then hook that up to to the rachio? https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-2-HP-Pump-Start-Relay-57009/100181554
Will that take care of the the zones? I’m not exactly sure how you hook up wires to the different zones? My guess is I’ll need something else since I probably have index valves? Thank you in advance, complete newbie here, but I like to learn .
