Can the colored control wires from the wiring harness be easily removed after they have been inserted into the bottom of the unit?

My father in-law put the wrong wire in the wrong zone for what he wanted and said he cant pull it back out. Since his zone wiring is over 20 years old I have recommended that he rewire from the unit to the zones but he said he would have to cut and splice because he cant remove the wire from the unit after it has been inserted. Is there a release for the wires after they have been inserted into the bottom of the unit?

My area is allowed only 2 days per week watering. That means I need to be watering once in early am and once in late pm on those 2 days. What are the pre-programmed start times on your timer?

Answer: 
It's pretty straightforward. You pick the first start time by setting it on the display. Then you pick the number of hours to delay before starting the second watering time. You can delay up to 12 hours for the second start time.

Hi DroughtLady in San Joaquin County, California.
Thank you for your great question.
To maximize your watering effectiveness, it is more efficient and more beneficial to water in the early morning hours rather than to water at night or in the late afternoon just before the sun goes down. Watering in the evening can lead to the growth of a fungus in your lawn and mildew on your plants.
You would be better off watering just before sunrise and then again four hours later. It would be even more beneficial to do all of your watering in the morning so that your plants are hydrated for the heat of the day.
This Rain Bird timer is designed to be used off of an indoor wall and will control up to nine valves. On page 6 of your Owner’s Manual you will find specific instructions on how to program your timer:
Step 1. Set the Clock -Turn the dial to the SET CLOCK position. Press the UP/DOWN arrow keys to set the time. Be sure to verify the AM/PM setting is correct.
Step 2.Set the Date – Turn the dial to the SET DATE position. Press the LEFT UP/DOWN arrow keys to set the year. Press the RIGHT UP/DOWN arrow keys to set the month and day.
Step 3.Set Watering Schedule – Turn the dial to select the desired ZONE (from 1-9).
Set Start Time and Run Time:
Press the LEFT UP/DOWN arrow keys to set the start time.
Press the RIGHT UP/DOWN arrow keys to set the run time (duration)
Select Watering Days:
Press the PINK WATERING DAYS button to select which days to water.
Select specific days of the week or select ODD DAYS or EVEN DAYS.
Select Watering Times per Day:
Press the blue WATER TIMES PER DAY buttons to select the number of times per day to water.
Repeat Step 3 for remaining zones
! NOTE: If more than one watering timer per day is selected, refer to the MULTIPLE START TIMES in the next section.
Turn the dial to AUTO RUN.
Optional Features:
Multiple Start Times:
If the TWO< THREE or FOUR TIMES button is selected then several pre-defined offsets are available.
! Note: Offsets are the number of hours between the first start time and any additional start times.
By repeatedly pressing the desired Watering Times per Day Button you will cycle thru the available offsets.
In the example in the Owner’s Manual it will show the THREE TIMES per day button was selected and the offsets are +4 and +8 hours.
This means that the SST (Self Start Time) will water three times per day stating at
• 6:00 am (first start time)
• 10:00 am (+4 hours)
• 2:00 pm (+8 hours)
! NOTE
The SST automatically resets at 12 am each day. Schedule multiple start times from 12:15 am to 11:45 pm.
I have included a copy of the Owner’s Manual in the PDF file:
http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/19/1981b742-7c6a-4039-84c9-8e9fbc55c3e6.pdf

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timer Easy set up easy program. Installed in minutes. Work watering several tomes a day in the locations you want to water. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Easy Sprinkler Timer Very easy to understand instructions. Set was fast. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 9-Station SST900i Indoor Irrigation Timer Very easy to install, easy-To-Set, and works good. I especially like that you can press one button and run one station at a time or press another button and the system will run through the entire set system with out changing any of the settings, and when through returns to the auto setting. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised I have used Toro products in the past, but had to switch due to availability. This controller gives you a lot of options, doesn’t need a battery, and is a joy to interact with. The display could be a little larger, but that is just a personal desire based on my eyesight. You will not be disappointed – I have two of these, one for my primary home and one for a rental and they are both great. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, easy install I was replacing an older rainbird controller and this was a great fit. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased. Timer was exactly as advertised. Easy to install and program and programming very flexible. You need to be careful when removing the old timer and keep track of which wires go to which terminal. Just snap a couple of pictures with your cell phone of the inside of the old timer's wiring before removing the wires, or use the "old" method of just writing things down. You will also need an AC outlet fairly close to the timer ---- which you should have if you are replacing another timer. On a DIY scale of 1-10, this is a "1." May 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WORST PURCHASE EVER tHIS IS THE WORST RAIN BIRD EVER. WE HAD TO RETURN ONE AND REPLACED IT WITH A NEW ONE AND WE STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. IT WATERS ON DAYS WE DON'T WANT AND OR WATERS NOT AT ALL. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Why cant all timers be this easy? I moved in to a new huse in December built by Brookfield, and in their great planning they put in a timer that controlled 6 zones, and well, since the builder provides sod and plant life in the front yard, they put in 6 zones leaving NO room for expansion! (Great planning on their part) When I brought this to their attention they did nothig and I was installing 2 zones in my back yard, so I was forced to go buy a new timer and I got this one. I had the old one out and the new one in, and it took less than 5 min. Even less time to program. So Simple and easy compared to the Hunter X-Control that Brookfield installed. So I would NOT suggest buying a house from Brookfield , but I would highly suggest this irrigation timer. May 6, 2016
