First, a couple of questions.
How accurate is the flow sensor? Does it overrule the the flow math based on soil and emitter type?
Do different pipe size flow sensors measure and report flow differently?
Currently, my estimated water usage is way off. Rachio is unaware of my low pressure micro-irrigation system and low pressure drip emitters. Will the flow sensor accommodate these? I’ve been unable to set plant type, sprinkler type, and soil type. Most of my zones (8 of 10 so far) are containers with kitchen herbs or ornamental annuals and perennials or straw bales with vegetables. My sprinklers are primarily 1/4" dripline or 1/4" soaker hose. There aren’t options for my soil and sprinklers types.
I’ve got two PRVs that reduce my house pressure (80psi) to 10 - 15 psi. Does it matter where I install the flow sensor, on the 80 psi side or the low pressure 10-15psi side? (the 80psi is far more convienent for me.) There is a back flow preventer with the two PRVs.
Sorry for the sloppy questions, I think I should start a new topic about micro/low pressure drip irrigation and straw bale and or container gardening.
