    Hi, Jack
    Thank you for your question.
    As for now, there is no way to not turn the pump when it is already set to do that. It is a system wide setting to use or not to use Master Valve (Pump) as Zone 1. Once set, it will start for each zone.

    Thank you,

    Seems like a simple program change w a check box. Is it something you will look at doing in the near future?

    Hi Support,

    I have same request to exclude master zone for some individual zones. 

    Use case is a little different: Want to use one zone for refiill water tank. In this case I do not want to have pump running while other zones are deactivated.

     

    Would be great to have this feature included in further release

    If you feel this is a great idea or something that you yourself could utilize, it would be a good idea to vote up on his idea. 

    Its to the right of the original post. 

    Thank You,

    Maybe that should be a bullet point at the top of this forum.

    I would like to see this feature to be able to turn off the pump relay for certain zones. I have one zone with some low pressure drip irrigation and having the master pump running is a waste of electricity and just causes unnecessary pressure in the line. Like jack says a simple check box to disable the master valve (pump) would be a good idea.
