I have a Rachio Gen 2 controller, I recently purchased a pump to begin using irrigation water from a lake instead of using the city water supply. When I went to hook up my “M” terminal to the pump start relay I discovered the “M” terminal is on and supplying 28 volts at all times. Is this normal?
I would imagine that this terminal should not be live until a given zone is activated and water is required? In addition to this, once I hook everything up, the Rachio turns itself off leading me to think I’ve wired something incorrectly, however I’ve checked every connection and it seems like I’ve hooked everything up right. I’ve reached out to Rachio on Wednesday with no reply as of yet, I’m hoping someone can assist.
Thanks so much!
