Trouble with Nelson Smartzone EZ

I just recently moved into a new home that has a complete Nelson system installed. I have never used Nelson equipment and have a question with my controller.

It seems like my program always runs two times each cycle, Is this normal?

Example, 6 zones x 10min each. When I set it to run this program at 7:00am, it will do the following.

I have erased the entire program and started over with the same result.

Do you think there is something wrong with this controller???

My program does have two start times, 7:00am and 7:00pm. But the controller runs each zone twice at each time.

There might be other programs active. You might be looking at program A, and there could be a program B or C doing some watering. Have you read the controller manual?

Nelson can be very confusing,I would replace it with a Hunter pro-c timer,rain sensor compatible with a bypass and remote control capabilities,also expandable to 12 plus zones.

It is better to be sure that your sytstem runs correctly with a new timer.
