    Hoping somebody can guide me.
    I've got a Hunter Pro-C control that runs though a pump relay switch turns the well pump on for each zone. Problem is that the system works fine on station one, but when I try to run stations two or three, the controller indications everything is working fine, but doesn't want to trigger the switch to turn the pump on.
    Any ideas? Thanks,

    Has anything changed recently? Is this a new install?

    The pump operation is programmable for each zone operation, since some small zones such as drip irrigation will not need a boosting pump. If your using a pump to supply the water, it appears you will need the pump to operate with all zones. Go back to the owner operation manual and reprogram which zones or all zones need the pump.

    make sure you have programmed only "one start time" as two or more start times will confuse the controller.

    Since this thread is a few years old, I would hope the OP has it sorted by now.
