Open Question

I have a watermaster model 57112 sprinkler timer. I have 4 stations set starting at 6:00 am each set for 60 minutes starting at 6 then 7 then 8 then 9 which means that all watering should be done by 11:00 am well it keeps on watering until 1 or 2Pm. How do I set it to run conseutive after each zone?

SOURCE: lost instruction manual to set

I can't locate any info on that timer. There is no timer that I can't figure out, I'm an irrigation contractor. Tell me what the face looks like or what buttons or dials are on it and I'll see if I can help.

SOURCE: I have 4 zones on

I cannot see the suggestions made by the other expert with whom you have been interacting. But I will try my best to guess.

Check the wiring on the new valves for zone 3 and 4 to make sure you have not shorted anything. Also please confirm if the new valves are of the correct rating for the controller. Are you using a common earth point for the valves? Make sure the earth and live are still clear.

You don't program each station. You only program one start time that begins the cycle that consists of the three stations.
Remove all start times but the first one and make that 5:45.
Set the station times to whatever you want, 12 minutes.
At 5:45, station 1 starts.
at 5:57, station 1 shuts off, station 2 starts.
at 6:09, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts.
at 6:21, station 3 shuts.

4 station timer help


Copy following link to help identify timer:

Most major brands are linked here, including manuals for each.
Some brands such as yardworks, etc, repackage other brands and have no online support or clear resolution for warranty claim.
Open link, then add a comment with brand and model and voltage so expert can access same manual.
Replace battery. Reset timer. Check if unit is getting power. Check if outlet has correct polarity. Are some basic troubleshoot steps.
Most timers have 1 year limited warranty, and timer that came with used house may no longer be functioning. Or the sprinkler hear has gone bad.
For replacement, I think Intermatic mechanical sprinkler timers are better value than digital timers, since the mechanicals have repair motors and trippers and can last 25 years.

Trying to find a manual


1) Copy following link for sprinkler timer links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler

2) Add comment March 2013 and describe timer in detail.
This will let me search files for same-similar timer, and find manuals that might be same-similar

3) Old timers, especially digital timers, are sometimes easier replaced with new.

Model 57882 9 station timer I did set up station 1 where do I begin in order to set up station 3


Question is not clear.
Do you have programming problem with the timer?
Or problem locating sprinkler heads?
Or a sprinkler valve problem?
Add a comment with detailed information.

Sprinkler timer turns ON-and-OFF.
Timer does not advance the sprinkler to next station. The sprinkler valve advances to next station when timer turns OFF.
For example, when timer turns ON, then station 1 starts watering.
Timer turns off, and then sprinkler valve automatically advances to station 2.
Timer turns on again, and station 2 starts watering.

I have an Orbit WaterMaster Sprinkler control, it is hooked up, but there is a light bulb that says power off and the sprinklers won't turn on. They will turn on manually at the sprinkler station. Can...


There are 3 things this "off power" "light bulb" could be. Blinking red light? means fuse has gone out. Check the power source where the unit is plugged in to. Is the GFI popped out? plug something else like a fan or something into the socket to test. the third thing is a short internally. Call orbit technical assistance. they're great.
