Cable fault finding in irrigation wiring


Manually fault finding an irrigation wiring system can be a tedious and frustrating exercise. A good place to start is to ensure that there’s power at the control box and that the box is sending power to the irrigation system. Then, by working back from the irrigation system solenoids, you can establish if they are receiving voltage, and if not, why not. In most cases all that is needed is a good multimeter, an idea of how the system works, and a bit of patience.
