I just wanted to introduce myself as a new owner of a Rachio controller and I have a question.
I bought the Rachio3 as a replacement to a Rain Bird controller during the course of troubleshooting a zone that isn’t working.
I’ve installed the controller and the zone still isn’t working but I’m not getting a zone fault notice. Should I be? The app says the zone runs during the default watering schedule. However, I know it’s not because the grass is dry in that zone after the run. i also can’t run the zone from my app.
I’ve replaced the valve and my novice electrical troubleshooting is telling me I may have a short at the valve. It’s raining today, so I can’t check my theory, but I’m near certain it’s an electrical issue and it doesn’t seem to be a line break but a short based on the ohm reading I’m getting for that station.
My main question is why isn’t the controller giveing me a zone fault alert for that zone?
Thanks in advance!
