do some electrical testing to see what continuity you have - every zone should show about the same resistance

oh my god, I think Im going to go insane... I put everything back together to go inside, cranked it up just for the hell of it, and 2 of the 3 valves that werent working are now working???!!!!! (3 and 6).

I checked the station terminals on the controller, and Im still getting like 22v on a terminal constantly, when it shouldnt be energized...?? So...i dont know whats up with that...

Valve 9 is now only showing as 22v on the terminal on the controller??? I also pulled the top off of it, and the diaphragm is pretty much I think I'll just suck it up, and replace the damn valve...grrr....

I dont know anything about ohms, but I'll look it up, and see what kind of resistance is normal...and check it all again after I put in the new valve...

fun stuff!!!
