Please forgive my lack of technical terms, I'm a total newbie with regards to sprinklers.
My Weathermatic sprinkler timer reports that I have a "fault" caused by a short in zone 2. When I try to turn the valve on manually, using a switch on the valve it still doesn't work (making me believe the issue is at the valve, not the control box).
I figure it could be a bad wire to the valve, although I think it's more likely that the little controller that sits on the valve has failed. Could it be something else? Any suggestions on how to diagnose/fix this?
