How can I open/close the valve in the Control when the power goes out?

If the Control loses power due to a power outage, power cord failure, or other loss of electricity, you can operate the valve by performing a manual override. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Lift the rubberized flap on the Control next to the power input port to reveal the manual override port. 
  2. Insert a 9 volt battery into the port and hold it firmly against the back of the port. The orientation of the battery is important - the negative terminal must be on the left with respect to the top of the Control (the side of the unit with the "OPEN" and "CLOSE" buttons). 
  3. When the battery is inserted properly and held firmly in the manual override port, the Control will power on and the lights on the top of the unit will light up.
  4. You can now open or close the Control valve using the buttons on top of the Control
