I recently installed a 4 zone irrigation system and I have the Orbit 4 zone controller. This weekend I decided to build some raised garden boxes and connect it to my existing irrigation. My question is whether or not I can add another valve to my 4 zones by doubling up the wiring on one zone? ie., can I have two valves connected to one zone?
The model is orbit 57894 and the user manual says it can handle 500mA and that each valve is 250mA to operate. However, when I spoke to customer service on the phone they said that you can’t and that the timer won’t handle it. It’s conflicting information, thoughts?
