Toro EL-12+, 2 valves on one station OK?


Wanting to add two valves that will come on at the same time for the purpose of foundation watering (got to love that Texas soil). While this older controller is not ideal for this purpose, I think it will do until I upgrade it (to one with at least 3 programs, not 1.5).

Both stations 11 & 12 are unused, which is great for the "hours" setting, but I'd like to simplify by having both valves on at the same time.

Can this controller handle two vales on one station?

Thank you in advance.

You won't know until you try, but get some replacement fuses first (exact matches only)

Thank you. I'm not sure why that didn't occur to me. Just over-thinking things again I guess.
