Irrigation Troubleshooting

Rain Sensor Override


One of the most common problems that could  cause your irrigation system to not work is the rain sensor overriding the system. The solution to the problem is on page 23 of the Hunter X-Core Handbook.

length of run-time per zone is set to (0) zero


Another reason the irrigation system may not run is because the run time is set to 0 (zero) minutes. The solution to this problem is  on page 18 of the Hunter X-Core Handbook.
