Check the individual solinoid that controls the on/off valve for that zone. It is possible that thes solinoid is bab or that the wires have become corroded and the terminals need to be replaced. Typically, there is a manual operation lever on the side of the electric solinoid that you can flip on to see if you have an obstruction in the line, but if the other valves are working correctly, that is not the usual problem.

You'll find the solinoid valves in a valve box in the ground, or sometimes the contractor installed them next to the basement, or in certain circumstances, inside the basement.

If you can turn the valve ON/OFF manually and the zone works, you'll need to get a replacement solinoid valve for your defective one, provided it has good connections and the terminals aren't all corroded. If corroded, you can attempt to clean them and try it to see if the valve will work.

If you're going to replace the faulty one, be sure to turn off the water supply and unplug the sprinkler timer, as once you remove the valve, water will freely flow and will make quite a mess at the valve manifold assembly. Also, typical voltage is 12V-DC or less operating the valves, but some commercial systems do use 120V-AC voltage, so be safe and unplug/disconnect the power first!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.

How to wire


First check the solenoids by performing a continuity test on all of them. For all the solenoids that test good, power each one with 24 volts to make sure that the plunger moves. Then go to the timer and initiate an ON cycle for, say, zone one. Go to the zone 1 connector on timer and check for presence of 24 volts ac. If not present try zone 2 for output. If nada then there is something wrong with the electronics of the timer.

Installed valve to water supply then added faucet bib thenthe sprinkler supply line water enters valve but no water out to sprinklers


You might have missed some constrictions. Try blowing out the zone with compressed air to make sure it's clear.

Sprinkler will not change zones


You mean timer will not change zones? Is it from zone 1 to zone 2? Does the timer say it is watering zone 2 and no water, does it default and shut down on zone 2? Does zone 2 have run time? Can you be a little more specific?

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

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.

Sprinkler head does not spray water


Make sure when you pull the head to ck the screen you turn the system on and blow out the line, then run a hose through the head to make sure it isn't plugged up anyway. Depending on the head and the cost of a new one will dictate cleaning or replacement.
