Recently purchased a home and am completely stumped with existing install.
Inspector should have tested the system- but didn’t. :-/ I was too overwhelmed at the time with other responsibilities to realize. But, such is life. So, time for some DIY!
It’s a combination of an Orbit 27896, an RIB24P relay, Flotec FP5172-08 1.5HP compressor and what looks like 7 zones.
Following the instructions for the orbit to manually water I can’t seem to get it running. The light on the relay never turns on, and compressor never begins to run.
So, I’m assuming this is an issue with the relay, the compressor or both. Shouldn’t be a water issue as the hose works just fine on the other side of the shed. Could the irrigation control valve connections be the culprit?
I bought the Rachio 3 before I even touched the thing but now am concerned about hooking it up to this if there’s a fault of some kind.
My guess is the relay will stay in the system as it’s turn on for the compressor rather than powering the sprinkler controller?
Can someone walk me through some troubleshooting steps? I’d like to narrow down what’s working and what’s not.
I’m handy with a multimeter and can do basic electrical work (not an electrician but a hobbyist). This is my first time dealing with a sprinkler system however and it’s not registering how this should all work together.
Hope they are visible / not auto-resized by the forum.
