Lightning Strike

Lightning knocked out my irrigation system, landscape lighting, TV receiver and garage door opener.

I replaced a Hunter Pro C with an Orbit Super Dial controller. I only have 2 zones and it seemed a relatively easy process but when I tried to switch the system on there was no water even though the controller went through its routine. I am a complete novice at this, what should I do next?

Check your wiring using a multimeter. Lightning has a way of frying wires and valve selonoids.

central is right.
Very possible everything electrical (box, wires, solenoids) fried.
