Irrigation/Toro TMC212 runs every day

Question
Hi,

My Toro TMC212 is set such that Program A is used as the default, starting at 03h00 and runs daily.  There's no problem there.
Program B is basically a copy of A, but with the zone times reduced a little and with days set only to Mon, Wed,Fri.
The trouble is, when I use Zone B, the system runs each day.I believe it does the correct timings, because it does this when I do a manual start.

Start time for ProgB is also 03h00, and the current time and date is correct.

Any ideas or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Answer
Hey  Pete, the problem is, is that the controller is going to run both programs, no matter where the program switch is set to. What you need to do, is put your run times for the zones, on program A to zero, so that Program A basically will not recognize time for the zones, and nothing will run for program A, but leave program B the way it is, so it will run the way you want it. Good luck and have a great day.
