Hey there, I just sold a home where I had many rotors and a weathermatic controller & weatherstation that calculated evapotranspiration by the way of hi/low temp for the day, humidity etc
This worked well and along with the rain sensor @ .25" I was pleased with it controlling the scheduling.
Fast forward to now, I sold that home and moved into a new place where i’ve installed a Rachio gen1 on a smaller .35 acre plot that has 9 zones of spray & rotors… 6-8 sprays per zone or 3 rotors per zone depending.
I have property configured each zone, using the default of 1.5"/hr for the sprays and 1"/hr for the rotors (aren’t rotors closer to .5"/hr?)
The plot has excellent head to head coverage, however I have not adjusted the efficiency settings past it’s 80% default.
My first automated run is set for the 22nd “as needed” and it looks like it’s chosen 10 minutes for the spray areas and 14 for the rotor areas.
Are there any other configurations or things I should do to optimize my setup and hopefully use less water as well, i’m in the same utility jurisdiction as the last house and our city water is very expensive.
EDIT: also it rained about .2" since midnight today and i don’t see that reflected anywhere in the scheduling.
