Easy to Install
Very easy to set up and install. I probably will not ever use many of the features. Fast shipping and good directions. A=

Easy installation. Easy programming
This is the most highly recommended control of professionals I talked to. Easy install and programming. High quality construction. Large display. Box is a little large but makes room for WiFi module. I'm pleased!

Weathermatic PL 1600
Ordered a Proline PL1600 to replace a Proline PL 800 since I had learned a little about how to use the PL 800. Installed it myself and it works perfectly. Very happy with it.

Super simple
Easy set up, easy to use.

Haven't had it long enough to rate its durability under the higher altitude elements, but so far very happy.

Needed to replace a rainbird that failed due to exposure to elements (kind of a bummer, as it was an outdoor timer and the display fried after one year). Took a chance on this one, as it's billed as indoor and outdoor. So far it has performed flawlessly, and the expansion process was remarkably simple.

What is the cost to expand to 16 zones?

How do you disconnect the sen wire that is alreday in the unit to install the sensor wire?
Sparky on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: See the 2 orange (I think) slots just above the sensor jumper wire? Press a small flat screwdriver in each slot, one at a time, while tugging slightly on the wire. The slots are spring loaded, so press a little firmly to make each one release its grip on the wire. To install the real sensor wires, again press each slot while INSERTING the 2 individual wires. One wire per slot. Let off the orange tabs, then gently give each wire a tug to make sure the spring loaded tab did indeed grip the wire.
Where can I get the expansion for the PL 1600?
Gina B on Oct 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The SLM4 expansion module will add 4 more stations to the controller. It's a simple "plug-in" installation. Don't know how many stations you need but the controller will hold up to four modules which is16 stations. Sprinkler Warehouse has these modules.

can I remotely turn the system
Off?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, although I believe there's a module you can add for internet connectivity. Check out the Rachio if you're looking for wireless connectivity and management.
How's does a contractor expand the 4 zone model to 16?
Charlie L on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This unit uses replaceable 4 zone modules which you purchase separately. It comes standard with one 4 zone module installed and has spaces to add 3 more giving it a total capacity of 16 zones. Installation of modules is very easy. The front face plate is hinged and swings open revealing the slots behind it where the modules snap into place. The unit automatically recognizes the new module once in place and adds the new zones into the programming functions.
What's the difference between a PL-1600 and a SL-1600?
Michael G on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only difference between the PL-1600 and the SL-1600 is that the SL-1600 can water based on E/T when paired with the Weathermatic SLW5 or SLW1 Weather station. The PL-1600 is a Basic Controller that operates based on run time rather than weather. The PL1600 is compatible with the RFS-5 Wireless rain and freeze sensor as well. The Valve Locator, Multi Meter, and English to Spanish Translator are a few of the top features of the PL-1600. The PL-1600 also uses the same expansion module as the SL-1600, the SLM4.
