Delay times.

I just drilled a well and it's only producing about 7-8 gal / min.

I have adjusted nozels and can run the well for about 10 min at a time.

My Nelson Control doesn't allow delay times.......I think.

It is a Nelson EZ Pro Jr.

I would like to have 20 minutes delay between each zone. Is this possible.

The system was put in new in 2006 and is a 12 zone system. I can program 9 different start times but I can't seem to figure out how to program a delay time. Does Nelson do this ?

That controller will not be able to give you a delay between zones - try a Hunter Pro-C

If it has multiple programs then you could set each program to start at a different time on the same day.
Basically, A starts at 6 am, runs complete.
Then B starts at 8 am, runs complete,
C starts at 10 am.
The programs will stack, so if you set B too early it won't make a difference. Still finish A first.
Your system doesn't have a delay or soak cycle that I can find.

Rainbird ESP modular controller will do what you want.
