- Main menu buttons
- Manage menu buttons
- Program menu buttons.

To display additional information in some sub-menus, press the * button. This button also allows you to make changes to controller keypad beeps and alert beeps.
Main Menu Buttons
Main Menu buttons are used most of the time for normal maintenance tasks and cause immediate action to occur.
This menu allows you to view the current operating status of the WeatherTRAK controller. Pressing the RUN button displays something similar to the following screen:
The current date and time are displayed, along with stations that are actively irrigating. The communication status of your controller is also visible here.
The Rain Pause menu lets you make programming changes to suspend irrigation for a specific number of days due to rain events in a range from 1 to 200 days.
The MANUAL TEST menu lets you manually start stations and perform valve and other diagnostic tests.
The OFF menu stops all irrigation until the user goes to another screen, such as RUN. The WeatherTRAK controller will still receive daily WeatherTRAK ET updates, and the schedule will be recalculated.
Manage Menu Buttons
Manage Menu buttons are used to manage water amounts, alerts and to preview current settings and ET information.
The ADJUST menu lets you adjust the amount of water that is being applied to the landscape. You can also increase the day frequency in this menu.
The ALERTS menu allows you to view and clear alerts.
The PREVIEW menu lets you preview station schedules based on the latest scheduling and weather data.
The ET menu provides access to current evapotranspiration data.

The SETUP menu is where basic controller functions are set-up and established.
The DAYS/TIMES menu is where you set program start times, water windows and water day modes.
