Rainbird® timer question

Posted by ronalawn82 z9FL ( on

I wish to have one station (#2) run for 15 minutes daily for the next five days, to water in some annuals.
At present, all 7 stations on the timer, including #2, are programmed to run on Mon. Wed. & Fri. I want this to continue.
With many thanks for your time and attention.

How many programs does your timer have? Controllers usually have three(A,B,C) Aloha

RE: Rainbird® timer question

lehua13, program "A" is set to run all stations on Mon., Wed., and Fri.
Program "B" runs station 2 only on Tue., Thu., Sat. and Sun.
That seems to be working OK.

RE: Rainbird® timer question


Why can't program A run Through out the week (unless your run time s aren't the same); Then use program B for your annual garden section? Aloha

RE: Rainbird® timer question

lehua13, the sprinklers must not run past 7.00 am. The system has 5 other stations at half an hour each. I do not want to run two programs and go past the magical hour -7.00 am.
