@crashtkd, I think we might want to double check your nozzle settings. When you’re ready to give Flex schedules another try, let us know and we can fine tune your zone settings.
Sorry I didn’t see this question sooner. When calculating your nozzle output (precipitation rate, or “PR”), you’ll need to factor ALL heads/emitters. Here’s the equation:
PR = (96.25(A*B))/©
96.25 = constant that converts gallons per minute (GPM) to inches per hour. It is derived from 60 minutes per hour divided by 7.48 gallons per cubic foot. times 12 inches per foot.
A = #heads -or- #emitters
B = flow rate (GPM) per head -or- emitter
C = zone square footage
Yep, see variable “C” above.
@garmanmd, just curious, did you review your nozzle settings to ensure they match the PR on a per zone basis?
Could you post these recommendations here for us (and other users) to review? I’m curious what scheduling interval they are recommending.
Thanks for your support and willingness to test and provide feedback on Flex schedules.
