Some controller displays will flash the minutes-remaining number while a zone is on. An electrical multimeter is very inexpensive and worth having. You can even buy one this weekend at a Harbor Freight store for all of two dollars.


How to troubleshoot with your multimeter

Thanks for your reply
I don't really know how to do that, but I can figure it out. Does anyone know if the time (time meaning 10 min. or whatever duration is set) should blink/flash when the sprinkler is running or should the time be on not flash/blinking?

Get a multimeter and see if the zone wiring is intact. With the controller off, check the resistance from the output common to one of the zone wires.

watering duration time blinks/flash

I bought a house that already has a sprinkler sustem installed. When I try and run a zone the time to run blinks and counts down but no water comes out of heads. Like zone 1 set on 10 minutes .... should the 10 blink/flash or should it stay on?
What does the time flashing indicate.
Thanks, I don't know anything about sprinkler systems. Trying to learn.
