See my YouTube video on how to program a Virtual Rain controller.
The Virtual Rain Model 27686 (VRC-6) is available in 4,6,9 & 12 Station indoor and outdoor models. Choose the watering schedule that best suits your landscape: day of week, odd/even, second day or 1-21 day intervals. With twelve different start times available, you can program the timer to give your landscape just the right amount of precipitation and meet most city scheduling codes.

Pros – I can’t really think of any. There are much better timers on the market than this one.
Cons – Difficult to program, not intuitive at all. Blinking cursor that shows where in the programming cycle you are is difficult to see. Multiple steps are required just to run a manual cycle.
