Toro lawn sprinkler system, shut water off went to winterize system hooked compressor to blow out plug turned on first zone, water blew out everything good, went to blow out 4 other zones and nothing


I may suggest your distributor was set to the first zone.
Therefore, neither water nor compressed air will "flow" in any zone except that one.
See if turning on the electric and setting a different zone will accomplish your desired result.
God bless your efforts.

ESP-6TM Sprinkler System - Everything on the display is correct. Then the unit reads "Err" and will not activate. Tried reprogramming with no luck. What is the problem?


When it gives the "ERR" code, usually it flashes the zone number after that. This will only do this when the system is set to "ON". Sometimes, error codes pop up for no apparent reason, with no fault in the system, and attempting to clear the alarm is the first step in troubleshooting the system. When turned to "ON", and the "ERR" alarm is displayed, hit the ENTER button. This should clear the alarm for a single zone. If another ERR is displayed, clear it also by pressing ENTER. Turn the system back to OFF, wait 10 seconds, then turn to ON. If no ERR codes are displayed, the system should cycle properly on next use. If ERR odes are still displayed, make another attempt to clear them, and re-check. If they cannot be cleared, trace down circuits to the valve boxes for each zone, and make sure that all wiring connections are good, dry, and tight. Solenoid valves can be removed with the water shut off, and tested at the control box by wiring them into the terminal strip site for a known good circuit, and then operating that circuit. If the valve is good, you'll see and hear the diaphragm move.

I have Intermatic sprinkler model T8845pv. I want to set it for daily watering in only one of 8 zones. When I remove the gold pins in the main dial and locate the zone I want to water, it waters the...


Intermatic sprinkler timers are 24 hour repeat cycle, with day-skipper option.
The timer does not change zones. The timer just turns ON-and-OFF at scheduled times.
Each tripper represents 12-15 minutes of watering. And then the timer circuit turns OFF.
When timer circuit turns OFF, the sprinkler system is designed to advance to next zone each time.
So when the timer circuit turns OFF and then turns ON again, your sprinkler control starts watering the next zone. This is the way sprinkler systems are designed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

If you had a sprinkler system with 1 zone, or could change your sprinkler system to 1 zone on certain days, then the timer would turn that zone on-off each time.
Call a local sprinkler company and see if they have a dual control or some solution >> but sprinkler controls are outside my area of expertise. I am timer expert.

You could solve problem with two separate sprinkler systems, but that would require two timers. I have never seen a 2-channel sprinkler timer. There are electronic two-channel timers that can handle two different programming schedules with minimum 1 minute on-off, and these timers can cost a few hundred dollars up to thousands, PLUS cost of the dual sprinkler system. Add a comment and let me know if two-channel timers are something you want information on.

My heat rises higher than the designated temperature. For example, if I set the thermostat to 60 the temperature will go up to 73. Invensys 9405


there could be a few things causing this, the first would be a bad thermostat. The second would be an improper setting of a heat anticipator on the thermostat, the third could be a stuck zone valve that is allowing heat to go in the zone as another zone is calling. Or it could be a stuck flow check also allowing hot water to flow through the zone much like a stuck zone valve.

If your thermostat is an older one with Mercury in it, replace it with a new one and dispose of properly. If the thermostat is newer, remove the cover or consult the owners manual to see if there is an adjustment that shuts off the thermostat a bit sooner to compensate for the heat that will be released from the system so you do not overshoot your setting on the thermostat. There may be either DIP switches to adjust the setting or a small pointer that slides over a small coil of wire and acts like a dimmer switch. Try adjusting and testing the system to see if it helps. Remember the original settings in case it does not help.

If you have zone valves (small boxes that allow flow of water to the zone) it may be stuck open allowing water to flow into that zone as another zone calls. You can test this by feeling the pipes at a baseboard when you know that the zone over heating is not calling for heat (turn thermostat to lowest setting). Check other zones to see if there is a call for heat in one of them. Make sure you adjust one of the other zones to force a call for heat in it, After a few minutes, feel the pipes in the zone overheating and see if the pipes are getting hot (be careful). This is the same test to check for a stuck flow check valve.

Okay couple questions here because either you have hot water baseboards or you have electric baseboard heaters.
- if the system is a hydronic baseboard heater fed form main boiler, usually this means your space heat is controlled by a zone valve which the zone valve is controlled by your thermostat.
-if you find the zone is controlled by a zone valve than it is possible the zone valve is defective causing hot water to bleed past the zone valve even though your t-stat is telling it to close.
- first find out what excatly the baseboard is heated by either water or electricity
-next personal message me and I can walk you through it

How do I test a specific Orbit Watering station without turning on the whole system?


I have done this in a couple ways. With a digital timer you can select a zone on manual and turn only that zone on. with a mechanical timer, you can set the dial to that zone and increas the duration. You can "hot wire" the zone by moving the zone wire to connect to the low voltage wire input to the zone. You can take a transformer out to the ground box and with an extention cord "hot wire " the zone at the ground box.

I have a hot water circulator when i turn on the cold water hot water comes out for about 30 seconds before the cold water will come out. What could be causing this?


This is could be because the system is set up to use the cold water line as the return to the HWH.

Hot water recirculation systems generally consist of a pump, an integrated electronic controller, and a zone valve. When the activation button is pushed, or when another type of control turns the system on, the pump starts recirculating cooled water that's been sitting in the hot water line and sends it back to the water heater through the cold water line.

If you would like..Google "hot water re-circulation theory"...it further explains this senario.

Need to wire a zone control for a closed system with a circulator


thats because the rinnai does not have a set up for a circulating pump it would make the unit run all the time,, they are not designed to work that way,, you will have to just wait for the hot water to get to the faucet just like before,,don't let any one tell you there is a way once the water flows it turn on the tankless so it would never shut off, you could get on that goes on a timer on say the farthest fauset away from the unit and set the timer to come on like 2 min before you are ready to use the water in that bathroom in the morning or at night other then that there is nothing else you can do
