I live in the desert. It doesn't rain here much at all (less than 5" a year). So I hadn't gotten to see the IRO work its magic until today! It is actually raining at my house right now. I looked at my Flex schedule this morning before the rain and it was watering every day (just different zones each day). Now that its raining, I pulled it up, and it now isn't going to water again until Friday! Very, very cool!
I did get my earlier issues with extreme run times fixed. I changed the flow rate higher on my bubblers using a custom nozzle and that seemed to take care of most of my issues. I didn't use a scientific method to choose the new rate - just set it higher and I was going to watch the plant health and tweak it from there. Also the Flex Schedules in 2.0 were much better, since it would water different zones on different days. My water company removed our watering days restrictions in favor of just having to stay under your quota. It will be interesting with the new tweaks how I do in two months. (I REALLY wish we had smart water meters so I could track it more easily, ugh).
Anyway - just wanted to say how pleased I am with finally getting to see the smart features of the IRO!!!
