Sprikler Valve Wiring?


My dog just chewed up the wiring for my backyard sprinklers at the valves. I noticed that each valve solenoid has two wires coming out of them. Is one a common and one a power wire??? Does it matter which one is which. They both are black wire no other markings.

Thanks!!!!

Yes one is hot and one is common. No doesn't matter which to which, its just a solenoid, and its low voltage.

good luck, Huck.
