Thanks for your question regarding the Hunter XC-800 eight-zone controller! If I understand correctly, you have an 8-station controller and you have four actual valves in the landscape. And you want to operate the four valves Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for some length of time, and then you want to operate those same four valves on Tuesday and Thursday for some length of time. So you are asking if each of the four valves can have a common wire and then two different zone wires so they can be triggered independently. If that is all correct, then the answer is yes, but it’s not the correct way and not advised. If wired in this manner there will be 24v being back fed to the controller when the zones are operating. I would suggest that for each of the four valves have a common wire and a single zone wire to operate them. Then on the controller, under Program A you can operate zones 1-4 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, starting at the time of your choosing (say 2:00 am), and each zone can be programmed for a specific run time (say 10 minutes). And then using Program B you can operate zones 1-4 on Tuesday and Thursday, starting at the time of your choosing (say 4:00 pm), and each zone can be programmed for a specific run time (say 2 minutes). This method of programming will be the best thing to do as it’s not damaging the controller with excess voltage.

This controller worked perfectly for my application. I have 8 individual zones and a couple of those were 2 solenoid valves per zone. Also, throughout the entire watering program I am running a master valve relay. So, at times this controller is energizing 3 coils simultaneously. This is a great investment that I never have to worry about. It has more functions that I will probably never use. It's very easy to program...very user friendly. Been running a couple of months now and no issues at all. Completely automatic beyond my expectations! I would definitely buy another if needed in the future.

Junk
Our landscaper installed the Hunter X-Core to serve just 1 station. This controller couldn’t handle even that. The knob broke after 2 years of light use. Search the internet and you’ll see this is a common problem with this controller, but Hunter doesn’t address it on its website. I won’t be replacing it with a Hunter, that’s for sure.

Horrible system
They installed this junk for whatever reason onmy new house I built. Multiple times tech had to come fix within the first month for not watering, saying it was watering but not, throwing error codes, etc. Took me one month of this too replace it with Orbit B-Hyve, cheaper, better built, is a smart sprinkler i can easily control, dis i mention CHEAPER?! The Hunter is hot garbage stay away!

We bought this to replace an older Hunter X-Core model that had stopped working. Because we already had the system and mount installed, installation was quick and easy.
