what exactly are you having trouble with,if you found the water supply valve turn it on.make sure the controller is plugged the instructions on the inside cover of the controller door it should tell you how to operate it.if the system does not come on ,call for service.

Look outside where the water supply exits the house. Maybe there's another valve that needs to be opened.

Now that I'm getting familiar with the sprinker system, I was able to find the timer and the main water supply lever. I notice that there's wire coming out of the timer-which is installed in the basement- and goes outside then underground. Only about 1" wire is visible.
Does that wire go to the valves, which I'm still not able to find in the front or back yard?
Should I dig up and follow the wire route to find the location of the valves so I can turn them on?

Besides, everybody knows you turn 3 times clockwise (not counter-clockwise).

Don't be sarcastic when you don't know who you are talking to, espically those who are novices. Your sarcasm can cause seriouse damage and there would be no one to blame.

a little sarcasm is a small price to pay when asking for free advice.

Oh chill. Just look for the timer and turn it on. If you are totally lost, try to trace any sprinkler control wire you see outdoors back to the house.

It was a joke. (I'm glad I didn't say 'sacrifice a chicken') You need to turn on the controller that operates the sprinkler system. If you don't see it near the shut-off valve, then try your garage. It's got to be somewhere.
