I’ve had my setup for a bit and everything seemed fine. Started noticing that a lot of my lawn wasn’t doing well and initially figured it was just because the sod was still fairly new compared to neighbors.
Turns out zones 1-7 will not activate. However, zones 8-11 are good.
The valve control box that houses 8-11 is closest to the unit and apparently stays pretty dry during rains. The 4-7 valve box becomes completely flooded and the 1-3 gets sort of wet. I know those items should be basically waterproof, and I do have someone coming out Monday.
I have done basic testing as in moving a known dead zone to a known working location. Don’t think I have a multimeter at home or I would have tried that. I can manually open the valves and each zone works.
My fear is that they will blame the new control box. The system should be under the builder / contractor warranty. Any input is appreciated.
