I have a 12 station system with all 12 stations connected on my Orbit Timer Model # 57012. Recently I am having problems when I run a program. Zones 1-6 are fine. When zone 7 kicks in, zone 6 continues to run and both zones have minimal water pressure. When zone 8 kicks in there is virtually no water coming out of the heads. I have reset the system and have put zones 1-6 on B watering schedule and 7-12 on C watering schedule. (A watering schedule has not worked since day 1). The problem has continued. I was able to manually water each station last night so I know there is ample water pressure in the lines. Is this a problem with the unit or the wiring?

Thanks for you help. My e-mail is [email protected]
