I have an Irritrol Total Control that came with the house. It is not sending 24VAC to the terminals, but power is coming from the transformer. There are no error messages to speak of.

I have six stations in my sprinkler system and am looking for recommendations for a controller that won't bankrupt me. Any installation tips are welcome as well. Bonus points if I can buy it at a big box hardware store or my local plumbing supply store.
