Help

my sprinkler system display shows all the zones and looks like it is working but the sprinkler heads are not poping up on any of the zones.
How would I be able to fix this.
Thanks

Try this:

Disconnect the power to the sprinkler timer either by unplugging it or by turning off the breaker that supplies power to the timer, whichever is easier.

Disconnect the 9v batter if there is one.

Go have a soda pop.

when done with soda, come back and hook up the electrical power to the timer, then hook up the battery, IN THAT ORDER.

This will work 9 times out of 10. When we perform a service call for this sort of thing we call it "demagnetizing", but I'm not really sure if that is accurate.

Good Luck!

try what Sprinkler Guy says, Or check the fuse on the controller. This happens all the time, where the timer is telling the valve to open but the blown fuse is blocing the message

Do you have a manual shut off valve? Maybe you forgot to open the manual shut off valve when you turned on your system this spring? I have done things more stupid than this.
