4. Thread the battery operated controller solenoid into the adapter using hand lightning only.
5. Lift the controller from the solenoid, open the battery cover and insert 2 AA alkaline batteries into the battery compartment (note the proper direction of the positive and negative orientation on the underside of the controller), close the cover and then mount back the controller on top of the solenoid.
6. Turn on the main water supply.
7. Test the timer to identify leaks in the solenoid connections using the manual on/off button located in the upper right side. Press the button once. A click will be heard indicating the valve is open (a manual operation icon and icon indicating the valve is open will appear on the upper and lower right side of the screen).
