Hunter Pro-C: blank display

I just found out that my Hunter Pro--C seems to be rather dead than alive. I had it off for a couple of days. I tested power outlet, transformer output and the voltage is fine there. I cycled power as per Hunter's article Hunter Still nothing, so I guess it's dead? It is installed indoors and there is rain sensor. There was really bad thunderstorm the other day. I tried calling Hunter support but it's already weekend overthere. I wonder if they replace it under warranty.

As GatorCuy suggested turn the valve manually in the valve box. Check the wiring connection in the manifold making sure its connected well, check waterproof wire connectors.

inlet size?

if I remember correctly if you connect 1/2" riser/funny pipe that is over 18" than you would have a problem.

Convert 3/4 Inlet to 1/2 for Spray Head

Is it just one head on a zone? Keep in mind that spray heads have higher precipitation rates. Adjust accordingly.

replacing sprayer with rotator?

you can replace heads, BUT you will screw up coverage on existing zone and coverage for the other part will be poor. You need to add pipe.

Modify existing system for new pool in yard

General rule of thumb you don't want mix rotors and sprays on the same zone. Precipitation rates of sprays are higher than rotors. Area under rotors would be dry while under sprays would be overwatered. Consider short to medium range rotors like Hunter PGJ or Rain BIrd 3500.

Just venting

It's free to get all lines marked. You never know what they did. Even then I hit my cable too at about 6 inches. Thankfully it was in poly pipe sheath. I cut through some old unmarked cable wires. I was like "what is that?".

Burying vs. valve box?

I mean how good will it clean out soil, sand? Probably good enough for big pieces but what remains could easily clog up nozzle or get into rotor mechanism and then you have to do more work. I didn't use it though.

Burying vs. valve box?

For emptying valve boxes it should be fine but I wouldn't trust it to clean lines from debris. I'd rather flush.

Inserting PE into barbed fittings

There is danger of overheating pipe with torch especially if you don't do it on a regular basis. It might fail later on. I used KY Jelly and a mallet.

Slip or Threaded Valves?

Quoted from "seansy59" 5"-8" is all I could do with a shovel, and then add 550' of digging in total. I guess its too late to suggest anything else but what helped me (unless its really rocky soil) is filling the trench with water, letting it sit for some time. It helped me quite a bit.
