No auto shutoff

I have 4 zones which work fine in manual mode. All 4 zones sequence properly in automatic except that when zone 4 finishes the sequence begins again. It doesn't seem to matter which days of the week are selected ( Tue, Thur, Sun are my prescribed watering days).

What kind of controller do you have?

It sounds like you have a second start time on your program. Most newer model controllers have stackable programming

For Example

If you have 4 zones that have the run time of 10 minutes each- your total run time is 40 min.

If you have Program A with a start time 1 or 8AM- it will water the 40 minutes. Well this program , can have more start times. If you have a start time 2 at 8AM again. The controller does what is called stackable programming. It will finish Start time 1 , then revert back to start time 2..

Please read your manual to understand this more clearly.

Go through your programming and make sure you have ONLY 1 start time on your program
