Program stacking is the norm, since they figure that you want all the water you are calling for.

In your case, I believe that controller has what they call "stacking" capability. If the run time overlaps with the second start time, the controller will finish the first cycle before beginning the second start time. the second start time will begin immediately thereafter.So your second start time will end later than expected.
Thanks,

I couldn't find that information in the rinky dink manual they included.

RainBird ESP and Seasonal Adjust?

I run several start times on all my programs and am curious if I use Seasonal Adjust will it also adjust the start times for the programs? The start times are separated by less time than the time I plan to add using Seasonal Adjust and I don't want to restart the program before it finishes. 'Course I could change the start times but I'm just curious.
EXAMPLE:
Program A = 5 valves (zones) = 57 min run time. Start times are separated by 75 min and I want to use 150% Seasonal Adjust (1.5 X 57 = 85.5 minutes run time.)

Thanks,

Jon
