Read your instruction manual. Not a problem.

Hunter Pro-C water day issue?

Thanks for the reply. I have read and re-read the manual, and watched the online videos and they all indicate that the non water days will have the drop with circle above them.
Thanks Again.

You are missing the part that specific non-watering days are programmed by choosing them to be non-watering by direct keyboard commands.

The point of the non-watering programming option is to never water on specific days of the week, allowing, for instance, odd/even day watering, but never water on a Monday, with the display showing Monday as a circled drop.

Look at page 18 of the manual.

Selecting Specific Days of the Week to Water
1. Press the button to activate a particular day of the week to water
(the display always starts with Monday). Press the button to
cancel watering for that day. After pressing a button the display automatically
advances to the next day. A icon indicates a water day.

>>>>>>A blank space indicates a no water day. <<<<<<<<

....and of course, a day not selected as a watering day, is a different thing than a day selected as a non-watering day....

It wasn't Hunter, or any major mfr who introduced the "excluded day" option. I received a mailing one winter about a new brand of controller, that had this feature. "Who on earth needs that?" I thought. And of course the following year had some towns going to a Never Water on Monday scheduling philosophy, which combined with odd-even scheduling to end the useful life of all those old motorized controllers and their 14-day calendar wheels.
