Common programming features are conveniently located on one screen, making programming quick and easy
Operates for at least two full years with two 9-volt alkaline batteries, or a minimum one year with one 9-volt alkaline battery
Large LCD display with easy to navigate user interface
Sensor input with bypass override
Master valve/pump-start circuit (multi-zone units only)
Non-volatile (100-year) program memory keeps your schedule safe when batteries die or are changed

Plastic controller case with outstanding resistance to weather, yellowing and aging
Dual-sealed battery chamber keeps dust, dirt and water out
Scheduling Features
Dedicated one-touch manual watering button for easy operation
Automatic zone-stacking ensures that only one valve irrigates at the same time. ESP-9V will automatically irrigate the lower number zone first if zones are scheduled to water at the same time
Contractor Rapid Programming™ automatically copies the start times and watering days from zone 1 to all remaining zones at initial setup
Routine schedules can be created in three simple steps
Run times, start times, and watering days are customizable by zone
6 start times per zone
4 watering day options per zone: Custom days of the week, Cyclic, and ODD or EVEN calendar days
Delay watering (1 to 9 days)
