Lightening hit between a couple houses - all sprinklers came on and would not go off. Turned water off, looked at display and screen is blank- still has 120v power to control box.

Do I need a new control box, and/or solenoids,  or could it be simpler than that ?

Hey John, power off the controller, and then turn the water back on. If the valves do not come on, then the problem is the controller, and probably needs replaced or repaired. If the power is off to the controller, and the water is on, and the valves come on, then the problem is in the valves, probably the solenoids got fried. Good luck and have a great day.

Any question regarding sprinking systems,installation,repair, and trouble shooting.


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.
