Update: System now works

Happy to report that the system is up and working! The short answer is the common wire in the valve box was not connected and thusly, the circuit was broken. What I neglected to mention in my prior posts was that the installer had hard wired the red rain sensor to the common wire (white) in the box, and the black sensor wire to one of the black wires in the box. I assume he did it this way to avoid having to run the sensor wires separately into the controller in my garage. I was not aware and mi...

The rain sensor wires are black and red (not white) and look to be about 18 gauge. Yet I cannot see where the sensor wires enter my controller either. Dumb que...

I moved the rain sensor switch in the controller to "bypass". Previously, I tested the system with the cut sensor wire and it worked. Now it does not. Additionally, I purchased a new controller today and wired it up. Same re...
