Wire selection

You have various wire available by conductor. I intend to have 5 valves in one location. Am I to assume that I should be looking for wire w/ 6 conductors (w/ one neutral) or is this the total number of single wires in the jacket which would only support 3 valves?

How many total zones do you have? If you have 5 total zones, then you need a 6 conductor wire so you can use one for the common wire.

You need a 6 conductor wire. The one neutral wire is connected to every valve.

Thanks,

They have wire all the way up to 13 strand. Also, if you want to expand in the future I would get larger wire now that way you don't have to replace it in the future.
