I want to be sure I understand climate skip:
Suppose I set up a fixed schedule for a zone. Set the watering interval so that it will "fill" the zone and set the interval to daily.
Each day, an hour before the watering schedule there will be a check to see if the zone "needs water" (my term, technical jargon formula are precise but do not necessarily lead to understanding.) If the zone does not need watering that day's schedule is skipped.
So, presuming that current climactic conditions would "deplete" a full zone in three days, this schedule would water days 1, 4, ... etc.
If the schedule were an every other day watering interval would the climate skip then be ignored because the next watering opportunity would be too far out? Or would it skip that watering and not water again until the next "other" day thus letting the "sponge" go into deficit?
