Water Budgeting Water Budgeting is a basic method to alter your watering length to coordinate occasional watering needs. Water Budgeting works by expanding or diminishing watering term for all stations in each program. Press the [PROGRAM] catch to choose the program you wish to spending plan. Modification range is from 10% to 200% by augmentations of 10%. The default worth is 100%. The planning will stay on the balanced range until you change it. To set planning: • Turn dial to [BUDGETING] • To modify press [+/ – ] catches, press [ENTER] • If utilizing numerous projects (A, B, or C) Press the [PROGRAM] howevertimer is 500mA. Figure 3: Wiring Electric Valves If the distance between the sprinkler timer and valves is under 700’ (210 m), use Orbit® sprinkler wire or 20 gauge (AWG) plastic jacketed thermostat wire to connect the sprinkler timer to the valves. If the distance is over 700’ (210 m), use 16 gauge (AWG) wire. Important: The wire can be buried in the ground; however, for more protection wires can be pulled through PVC pipe and buried underground. Be careful to avoid burying the wires in locations where they could be damaged by digging or trenching in the future. All wires should be joined together using wire nuts, solder, and/or vinyl tape. In wet environments like a valve box it is recommended to use Orbit Grease Caps or Speed Seals to prevent corrosion of the connection and for protection from water infiltration. Connecting Sprinkler Wires to the Timer Taking the sprinkler wire, strip 1/4” (6 mm) of the plastic insulation off the end of each individual wire. Connect the “Common” sprinkler wire (usually white in color) to the terminal labeled “COM”. Next connect the remaining wires to a separate terminal . See Figure 4 To avoid electrical hazards and damage to the timer, only one valve should be connected to each station. See Figure 4 Solenoid Wire Nut To Timer Valve Common Wire 4.
