Default Brutus Wiring Plans

After much time trying to figure out how each component of my build should be wired, I think (hope) I finally have it figured out. Below is a diagram I put together for a system that will be using two Love TS controllers with Honeywell 8200A valves and Little Giant pumps. I'm also including a Love timer.

Given my relative inexperience with electrical work, I am going to call someone out to actually wire everything together to ensure that all of the connections are properly made and appropriately grounded. But first I was hoping that people familiar with how a Brutus-style system works could take a quick look and let me know if you see any major errors in my design. Basically, if I gave this to an electrician, would it make enough sense? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Here's a hosted image in case it's easier to read: link

Not yet. Holidays got the best of me and haven't started yet. Going to give onehoppyguy a call to see if my idea is way off base. Hope to have it up by the end of the month. Will post pics the.
