Rainbird ESP-8Si Help

Quoted from "Wet_Boots" At some point you will need a multimeter, should you expect to maintain a sprinkler system without simply throwing parts at it. That said, it won't hurt anything to redo the valve connections. Take photos before you undo any wiring. So the 2 valves in the front have blue/orange wires that go to zones 1 & 2. Then there is a brown wire that connects to the common which, when unplugged from the common, zones 1 & 2 don't work. The 5 valves in the back have a green wire that ...

Rainbird ESP-8Si Help

Experts, I have the Rainbird ESP-8Si with 8 zones (only 7 used) There is a round circle plate in the ground outside which is full of water and near where the controller is in the garage and there is a rectangle box with 5 of the solenoids in the back of the house - I turned it on the other day and only the 2 zones in the front spray, the 5 in the back do not. I don't believe this has any modules and its unlikely that all 5 solenoids stopped working at the same time. A) I'm assuming the round cir...
