How do I reprogram my irrigation controller?

Irrigation system controllers should be reprogrammed to water on the new days or use the manual setting to operate the system on the appropriate day for the designated zone. If you purchased a Rachio smart irrigation controller through the city, tips on running your system are available via the Rachio Help Center.

You can also watch a video on how to reprogram your controller on our YouTube channel

Woodbury residents who have not purchased a smart controller and have a system that was installed before 2020 should consider purchasing one at a discount offered to Woodbury residents. Visit the Smart Irrigation Controller Program page to learn more.
