Old Hunter Pro C (2001) dosent recognize stations

If you go with the newer "no module" Pro-C or better known as the PCC, then make sure the wires are long enough to reach the terminals. A pro would know this. If there's plenty of play in the wires then it's your call. The PCC would cost less.

Do you recognize this valve model?

blah blah blah another forum blah. I'm not concerned wth other forums. I'm only concerned with his question at THIS forum. He wanted to know what valve to buy at Lowes. You just can't leave well enough alone. Don't answer people's questions from other forums here at Sprinkler Talk. Answer Sprinkler Talk questions only please. You're intentionally confusing the issue.

Do you recognize this valve model?

Boots doesn't care about what people's questions are. That Hunter valve is an excellent valve and can be bought where you want to shop.

Do you recognize this valve model?

The only time I've seen one of those installed they guy had it at the end of his dripline. He said it keeps the emitters from getting clogged cause the water zips by the emitters when the zone is first activated. I never gave it any thought after that. I don't live in an area where people drain their lines for winter. Someone else will have to chime in on this.

Do you recognize this valve model?

As long as the valve body and solenoid are ok then the HR1 parts should work. That's a very old valve though.

Do you recognize this valve model?

That's a Rainbird EV100 very similar to the HR1. The parts are interchangeable. In your picture you've cut the pipe already. You may as well replace the valve. Here's the valve at Lowe's you want. Hunter Valve. Yep, 24 volt.

Low flow after adjusting

You're turning them down too low. Nozzles are designed to be turned down a max of 20%. So if you have 15 foot nozzles and you're trying to spray them 8 feet, it's not going to work. They'll do exactly as you described. Brass nozzles can be adjusted down low and stay put but plastic doesn't work well. You need to buy new nozzles. They come in various distances. 17, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4. Depends on the brand.

Noises in the new poly line

Check and see if the noise is coming from the pressure reducer. You might need a different brand. I like Rainbird's combo filter and pressure reducer. Filter Shop around for a better price. 14 bucks tops. I don't get hum out of them like some other brands.

Do you recognize this part?

That looks like it broke off of a Champion valve adapter. What kind of valves do you have in your yard? Maybe take a pic. It holds the seat washer on so eventually the valve will fail or maybe it's been replaced already because once that part breaks off the valve will have problems. It might get stuck on or it might sound like it wants to come on but it's not. The good news is the part got stuck in a faucet and not the valves. That means the hose bib might be at the end of the line so you can fl...

Wiring cut between 2 valve boxes

It depends on what model valve it is. If it's an inline then just take the bonnet off. The top half. You could always post a picture. Go to www.tinypic.com, upload your pic there then cut and paste the "forum" code here.

Wiring cut between 2 valve boxes

I've found that pool installers have a way of getting gravel into the main line. Go find the valve that's stuck on and take it apart. See what's in there.

Toro T5 Rapid Set reducing right Arc stop problem

I've never had the pleasure of adjusting the Toro Rapid Set. Check out this video If the right stop is broken, I'd just turn the sprinkler to the right until the right hand side is set correctly then set the left stop. If it doesn't stay set after that then the sprinkler needs replacing.

Zone partially running when off

If you have two zones running at the same time that could give it "half ass pressure". Make sure the solenoids are all the way snug clockwise. Unplug the timer with them running and see if they shut off. Make sure your back up battery is good before doing so or you'll lose all your programming. Or you could just disconnect the two zone wires and see if they shut off.

Stumped on sprinkler flow

There's something wrong with the valve. It needs repair or replaced. It depends on what model valve you have and how difficult it is to replace. Can you post a picture of the valve? www.tinypic.com

no AC message. Trying to rewire controller

Usually the common wire is white. Are you sure the black and the white wire aren't mixed up? Have you pressed that reset button to see if the power comes back on? It might and then the wiring or a solenoid is shorting it out again. I worked on one today where the number 1 solenoid blew the fuse. Which in your case would show no A/C. Can you test the a/c terminals to see if there's 24 volts? Do you have a master valve because there's a wire hooked up to it? The speaker looking wires are probably ...

Adjust distance

That nozzle is a 30 foot throw. They have 20 footers and 10 footers. Those are not adjustable. This nozzle is adjustable Toro Stream Nozzle. Keep in mind that the adjustable nozzle uses more water than the one you have installed now and might not go as far. The streams are thicker. I've used them many times. They work great.

Drainage Advice

If your pipes are in the floor there might be a leak inside your house. I've seen exactly what you've described a couple of times from leaky copper pipes under the floor. Try shutting the water off where it enters the house and see if the meter still indicates a leak.

Low flow improves with open bleed screw

Maybe the solenoid plunger is rusty or has debris in there keeping it from opening up.

Low flow improves with open bleed screw

I don't know which model Champion actuator you have but a new diaphragm should fix you up. Champion's out of business but if you look around you can find what you need. The 800 series diaphragm should work on the large brass actuator. Maybe you can post a pic. Go to www.tinypic.com, upload your pic then cut and paste the "forum" code to your post. champion diaphragms I've bought from this guy.

Can you buy flex pipe by the foot?

There's no way of knowing if that's the same pipe. It's hard to tell if it's the same without a link. Did you mean funny pipe? Did you mean flex pvc pipe? Poly pipe?
