Installed this about a month ago, install was easy enough, but the instructions for programming it is not. I thought I would try the automatic settings, but couldn't sure if it was working. I went and did it the manual way of selecting days, hours, time of watering and I think I have it programmed right, did e-mail for help from manufacturer, digcorp, but got no answer, so more fumbling around. It does, however, work when I go for the manual operation, but this' defeating the purpose and I'm back to where I started. Instructions seemed clear, but not sure if this will really work.
