Save water and protect your lawn by simply changing your programming.

Please be careful when you adjust your “Seasonal Adjustment”, we have programmed your controller to stay inside your watering restrictions up to 100%. If you go above 100%, you can water longer than your municipality allows.

If your controller is not listed below, please consult our list of manuals
