Hello, been a while on the forum. Need some help.
Have summer home that is 1500 miles away. Has Rachio3 controller. Rachio3 works great, nary a problem. My problem with our drip system is “not knowing if a valve is actually open”. This past Thursday, via our outdoor camera system I could tell that 2 of 4 zones were not getting water. The other 2 zones I can’t see. Rachio3 indicates all is working. Had maintenance guy look over the system. Triggered system on; master valve sounds like it’s open, Z1 valve is heard to open. No water! Had maintenance guy manually open the master valve. Water flows! Returned master valve to operate with applied voltage from Rachio3. Water flows! Ran system thru 3 short cycles. No problems!
Now I’m want valves with a feedback relay that has will indicate that the valve(s) are actually open or closed. Anybody know of such valves?
