Master Valve on-off for individual zones
« on: July 09, 2017, 04:26:35 PM »
Is there a way to have the master valve not go on for a single zone within a program? I would have expected a MV setting for each zone.
I could wire in a relay for that particular zone to disconnect MV power if I had to, but I'd rather not.
 
I pump pond water, and every other zone is a filter backwash cycle. I can't have the pump on for this cycle.

I'm switching from a Rainbird controller with this capability because I want internet - network control.

Thanks,
Frank

For more flexibility, the Master Valve can be set per program.  A program can consist of 1 or more zones.

You can create a program that runs some particular zones that you want the Master valve to turn on and set Master valve for it.  Create other program(s) with the zones you don't want the Master valve to turn on and select no Master valve.

There is no limit on how many programs you want to create nor the start times you want them to run.  So you pretty much have limitless combination of whatever you want to do.
