Hello I have an err 1 on my rain bird controller and all the zones work except for one and two which are in the same place could this be a solenoid gone bad. If so I have found the wire that runs out of the controller does this run to the solenoid box?

Welcome to Stack exchange Brandon. Have you had any frost recently, this often causes damage to solenoid valves in irrigation systems? I would work out which pipes should water the broken zones and trace those back to the solenoid. This solenoid is most likely the faulty part and should be replaced.

  • It has been warmer here as of recent I'm actually trying to locate my solenoid box which I am have a tough time finding. I found the wire tuning from my controller does that run directly to the solenoids?
