Sprinkler Timer Replacement

DIY 1384 views

Today I replaced the ancient sprinkler timer which came with my house (Orbit 27596), with something more modern: Rachio. Setup was a breeze, and I love controlling everything from the iPhone app!

I got it from The Home Depot. It was easy to install. I installed it inside my garage where the old one was. I drilled a new hole in the cinder-block and wired it up. The original setup had a pvc pipe which housed the wires; I had to dremel out a notch in the pipe to allow the new unit to rest flush. Pretty easy stuff.

Got a message from my sprinkler system
