irrigation problem

Postby shane78 » Wed Jan 22, 2014 10:26 am

Hi guys new here and hoping to find some answers desperately, ok so a while ago I cut the wires from my
control box digging a footing, to cut a long story short I have fixed those wires and various piping
only to find my sprinklers still dont work, on every station i am getting a short burst of
power to solenoids (which i have checked and are all working) then nothing, could I have
a wire problem or is my control box stuffed which is a pope digimax 8 station.

Hi Shane - and welcome to Garden Express (Y)

I'm far from a retic expert and don't know the controller.

I'll ask the obvious question, where the stations / programs all working before you cut the wires from your control box (I assume you are using a multicore from your control box with a common earth?) ?

Have you tried approaching Pope also?
