I checked with Sprinkler Warehouse first and I did not see it in their product line. If I missed it I am sorry SW. I do not wish to redirect business from SW but, after price checking I feel they still beat the list price on most products. You can get a Doubler at www.JohnDeereLandscapes.com. Once again, I am sorry if SW carries this product.

There is a device called a "doubler". It works great in a situation as you described. It acts like a train track switch. You wire this device to the one good field wire and then to the two valves. The only thing to keep in mind is that the device must go to rest between those two zone runs. This is usually achieved by running another zone run between those two or with a time delay between zones. Also, you just need to run a jumper wire in the controller between your selected zone terminals. It is very easy to install and it works great in a situation like yours. I hope that helps.

wiring problem

some one did a repair and wired two zones together, and now there is not enough pressure for the system to work. are there any alternatives to running a new wire to one of the zones. The previous wire was cut.
