STOP THE START TIME EPIDEMIC

I work troubleshooting over the phone for Toro and Irritrol

The most ANNOYING call I get is when customers call and tell me they think they have a bad controller because the cycles are repeating. "Each valve runs and then when it gets to the last valve, it shuts off and starts back at valve 1 again."

YOU ONLY NEED ONE START TIME KIDS. WATERING ONCE A DAY=1 START TIME.

Even CONTRACTORS are walking away from homeowners' systems programming in unneeded start times. I am baffled.

STOP IT PLEASE STOP

When I deal with customers that are paying my invoice that don't understand irrigation systems and controller start times, I always ask my self if I would be good at their jobs or their role in society.
