  Number of Programs
Another option you should have on your timer is multiple program capability. If you have this option you’ll see a switch that allows you to set the timer on program:
A, B, C or 1, 2, 3, etc. Multiple programs on a controller allow you run different stations on different schedules.

For Example:
If you have a shrub zone that needs to be watered once every 14 days, a tree zone on that needs to be watered once every 21 days, and a lawn zone that needs to be watered every 3 days, you’ll need a controller with at least three programs. It’s the different frequency needs that determine how many programs you need.
