The landscaper informed me this week that the sprinkler controller in the park has malfunctioned again. The controller is no longer holding its programming.
The controller first malfunctioned in August, but the failure went unnoticed until mid-September when the turf and shrubs started showing signs of extreme stress. We thought a fresh set of batteries might be all that was needed, but this second failure puts that thought to rest.
The board has voted to spend $450 to replace the controller with a new Rain Bird controller.
I don’t have a date for the installation of the new controller, but I believe the landscaper will have it completed within a week.
