Irrigation/Rain Jet RJC-6 controller


I have a RainJet  RJC-6-1  timer I have had for many years.
I have to push on the inside cover to make contact.
I probably need to replace it with a RJC 66 but they do not mention the model with a pump start.

Do they make a RJC 66 1 (with pump start?)

Hey Darryl, the Rainjet brand would not be considered something a professional contractor would install. I have no idea about these controllers, except the fact that this brand controller would be the first thing I would replace. I would suggest installing a Irri-trol "Rain dial" controller. They come in indoor and outdoor models and also a 6, 9 or 12 station model. They all have a pump start terminal. These controllers will last 12 to 15 years, and also can be repaired if they ever go bad. Spend the money and get a good professional controller. Good luck and have a great day.

I have been installing and repairing sprinkling systems since I was 15 years old. Have owned my own sprinkler system contracting business for over 26 years. It is basically the only job I've ever done, except for being a paper boy when I was young.
