Thread: Connecting one valve to two stations to get more cycle times

  1. #1

    Default Connecting one valve to two stations to get more cycle times

    I was wondering about connecting a single solenoid valve to two stations to increase the number of cycle times. Right now, each station only has 4 cycle start times, but I would like more for a single valve. The reason is my dogs are killing my grass with their urine and I was hoping to water many times a day in very short bursts to help wash it away. The summers here in Vegas are very hot and the grass cannot take any additional stresses other than the heat.

    Can I do this?

    Thanks

    quick question, do you have multiple programs on your controller or is it just one. What model controller?

    I have a Rainbird E-6C. I have 3 programs (A, B, C). I just want to make sure it doesn't blow up my controller.

    Each program has 4 start times. If you assign additional start times on each of the two remaining programs to that particular zone you could end up with a total of 12 cycles for that zone.
