SOURCE: how do you reset the timer for a rainbird


Resetting involves reprogramming, but that's easy to do. You probably have a cheat sheet, like I do.

Unplug the timer, remove the battery, and go have a cold drink (let it sit for about 10 minutes. Reinstall the battery, plug it back in and you are good to go. Reprogram.

SOURCE: Sprinkler control box appears fine, but sprinklers to not open

If all zones do not open, I would check the water supply first. Verify that the water is indeed on. If you have water at each valve location, then I would check at the wiring at the controller. Use a Multi-meter & check the resistance (ohms) between the common wire terminal and the wires at the terminal for zones 1 through 6. If you get an open loop (O.L.) reading on all zones, I would think the common wire is cut or disconnected. Also look for a rain sensor that could be wired into the common wire. If it is faulty or stuck, it could cause an O.L. in the wiring. If a rain sensor is wired in at the controller, disconnect it from the common wire path and connect the common wire directly back to the common terminal. If it works now, then you have a bad rain sensor.
A normal reading should be 20 – 60 Ohms from the common terminal to any zone wire. If you are in that range, the only other thing it can be is the output voltage from the controller to the valves. Use a Multi-meter & check the voltage at 24VAC terminals where the external transformer is connected. You should have 24-30VAC. Next, open zone 1 and check the voltage between the common wire terminal and the terminal for zone 1. You should have the same reading as you got for the transformer. If you have nothing or a large difference, then I would suspect the controller might be damaged.
Remove the power & 3 volt lithium battery and wait 2-3 minutes, then reprogram the controller and try again. Good luck!

SOURCE: I change the battery on sprinkler RainBird box and

When the battery is removed and the power is off, it has to be reprogrammed when power is restored, but you knew that. Check that the battery was reinstalled properly, and that the 'wall power' is hot, and properly seated to the unit. This should do it.

SOURCE: injectors

Injectors from the same ccm engine are most probably sounds same but to be on the safe side check not only the shape but code on the top of injector too. Because they are piezo effect injectors and set by the manufacture for a specific pressure for specific engine codes.

SOURCE: i have low water pressure on my rainbird sprinkler

There are several ways to adjust water pressure on sprinkler systems. First you have to determine if there is a problem with the sprinkler system itself. Things to look for:
1.) make sure that all valves including the main are all the way open.
2.) Inspect the sprinkler heads for clogging. Sediment and debris can also clog your sprinkler heads. Some debris removal may be required.
3.) You make have too many sprinklers operating by one valve. You may need to divide a zone and add another valve to increase water pressure.
4.) If all else fails. You can install a breather intake cap to allow air into your sprinkler system thus increasing GPM (gallon per minute)flow.
5.) one of the biggest mistakes that peopel make is that they undersize the water pipe size to save money. Typically you want to use 3/4" PVC pipe for your main runs and tee into 1/2" PVC for your sprinkler heads.
Good luck. I hope this helps.
