Choose a zone with full sun exposure that is
in the fastest-drying area of the landscape. If
necessary, move valve wires so that this is the
last (highest-numbered) station to water.
Choosing the Probe Location
The SC-PROBE moisture sensor must be installed
within 100' (30 m) of the NODE-BT controller using
18 AWG (1 mm
) direct-burial (UF) wire.
Choosing the Zone
Install the probe within the last scheduled zone to irrigate,
so that normal irrigation will not interrupt watering or
trigger the sensor prematurely.
