Controller and valves

Can 2 valves be connected to 1 (or each) terminal on the controller? Thanks.

Yes they can, but do you have enough water pressure to run two zones at once?

Hey thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. With regard to having enough water pressure, that's what I'm not sure of.....but before I test 2 valves wired into 1 station on the controller, I wanted to make sure I wouldn't electrically fry valve solenoids or the controller itself. Thanks again.

Most controllers can handle it. You're not going to fry any solenoids. I've seen on a couple occasions where wiring two valves together will blow the fuse. I've had it happen on a Toro Greenskeeper and a real cheapo RainJet controller.

Hum, maybe I shouldn't try it, just to be safe, 'cause the controller is definitely a cheapo...Rainbird SST600i. I don't see a fuse, just a small hole with the word "Reset" above it. :( Thanks a bunch, do appreciate it.
