1) More than one Daily Start Time has been set for each program. The program will start at the designated start time and run all zones assigned to that program in consecutive order. If you are using Auto Adjust mode with an SLW weather station, the Auto Adjust mode will automatically divide run times to minimize water run off. To turn off extra start times, turn the dial to the Daily Start Times position and use the Next button to view all start times for each program (A, B, C and D). Use either arrow button to advance to the OFF position for each start time.
2) In Auto Adjust the combination of Soil Type, Slope and Precipitation Rate (Sprinkler Type) set an automatic Run/Soak feature that causes the controller to cycle multiple times so that the proper amount of water can be applied without creating runoff.
3) In the Standard mode a Run/Soak feature has been set in the Advanced Functions position causing the controller to cycle multiple times so that the proper amount of water can be applied without creating runoff.
