I have an Orbit Home B-Hyve wifi sprinker system, which has worked great for like 18 months.
However, three days ago it just stopped working completely. When I manually engage a zone from my phone, the controller says that it is running, yet no water is going to the valves. Every zone fails and has the same behavior.
I did check the voltage at each zone when it was turned off, and there was a voltage of around 16.8 VAC at each zone when touching the zone and common wire.
Here is where it gets odd, maybe.
I engaged zone 1, and check the terminal for 1 to COM, and get around 28 VAC.
With zone 1 still engaged, each of the other zones, 2 through 6 report a voltage of around 28 VAC also. Is this normal?
I also get an infinity reading of resistance when checking the zones to the COM.
What could be the problem? I am completely stumped!
