3 times a day.

I see this a lot. Here's what you've probably done. You only need ONE start time. The valves will run in sequence after that. For example. You have three valves and you want them to each run for 15 minutes starting at 6 AM. All you have to do is set ONE start time at 6 AM. Not valve one at 6AM, valve two at 6:15 AM and valve 3 at 6:30 AM. That will cause them to run three times. They'll cycle at 6 AM for 45 minutes then start over then start over again. So, you need ONE start time then tell each valve to run for 15 minutes or whatever time you desire. Or, you may have set more than one program to come on. For example. Program A at 6AM. Program B at 6 AM. Program C at 6AM. This will also cause it to run 3 times. I'll bet you a nickle I'm right. =) Good luck!
