I need some help please.
The Iro allows for 10 evapotranspiration related parameters to be specified to get automated, no mess no fuss, never touch it again perfect watering of landscape zones down to perfection, no matter what the weather is, temperature, rainfall and all, all year round:
Plant material, soil, slope, shade, type of sprinkler head, area, avail water, root depth, allowed depletion, and efficiency.
This is the beauty of a Flex Scheduled zone. Never again waste a drop of water - it's all optimized.
What I need is a translation of these 10 parameters, to set up one zone, Flex Scheduled, to this:
5 minutes of watering, daily, in the month of July, in the Dallas area, when the sky is clear and it's bright, sunny and hot.
1 minute of watering, daily, in the month of Jan., when the sky is clear and it's bright, sunny and cold.
When it's raining I don't want water. When it's cloudy I want less water. When it's hot and dry I want more water (up to the max of 5 minutes). When it's cold and damp I want less water. Etc. Not one thing different than what Flex Scheduling already provides for.
What I want is the water amount adjusted exactly like a Flex Scheduled zone is supposed to do. What I can't figure out is how to specify the 10 parameters such that I get 5 min per day in July and 2 min. per day in Jan. as described above.
I have extreme trouble translating all of the 10 landscaping parameters to minutes per day. It's bewildering. But I'm not a landscape expert and I don't understand evapotranspiration concepts at all.
Is there someone here who is really smart with all of these ten evapotranspiration parameters that can simply tell me what to set all ten parameters to that will give to me the watering per day asked for here, adjusted no differently than any other zone would be for weather changes?
