Cable guys cut all the wires in my irrigation system and connected them wrong. Repair guy says components in zones were shorted out and parts need to be replaced. He also made the comment that the wires might have also been shorted out and need replacement - is that possible? I figured a wire will still work if it is still connected to both ends. What am I missing?
He replaced the control box already. He also says they hooked the ground wire to zone wire and voltage to valves tripled to cause the short. But is it possible that the wires themselves would need to be replaced?
Cut off water Unscrew valve solenoid and disconnect wires in valve box Turn control box on to run first zone Connect one wire to ground and one to zone 1 from the solenoid that you have in your hand If it vibrates then do this with each zone in control box If it vibrates going through each zone then they didn’t rewire it correctly and you will need to find where they cut it and fix
