first assign output# in ports and pin output. then using menu Operator- VB script editor create file in mach3-macros  with extention .m1s  Use M101 and further. for example M101 to turn on water ,M102 to turn off water etc. the script will go like   Activate signal(1)   and  Deactivate signal(1)

Now you can assign button on screen with Run VB script in screen designer.
