I have 18 station and it has as many programs as it does stations

Hello,

I am happy to hear that you have been able to get as many years as you have out of that controller. I think that you will find that since then they have progressed with the controller and the newer ones will be more computer like then what you are used to. For your situation I would recommend the new Rain Bird ME controller.

It is a very user friendly controller and one of the smaller footprints for systems over 15 stations. I would advise you to look around and to see what fits your needs best but this should be one for you to consider.

Regards,
Bob
