    Sorry, I have scoured the internet to try and figure this out and can't.

    I have a new Rainbird ESP Modullar Controller. It has three programs, A, B, C. Six zones.

    I want the zone for my flower bed to go off every morning during the hot summer months here in Houston, and I want the all the other grass zones to go off only every third day.

    How do I make the one zone work independently of the other 5? I can't figure out how to do different start times for an isolated zone.

    I think I can only run one program, and multiple start times during the day run the whole program. Certainly there is a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Program A for the everyday zones,then switch to program B and only put minutes in the zones you want.Put the days they come on.And put a start time in,before or after zone A is done.Always remeber which zone you are on when programing.When you put 0 minutes in program B for a zone it will have no effect in program A.Good luck this is an easy deal as you will soon find out.

    Thanks. I didn't realize the programs run consecutively if they are on.
