Using a Gen 3 w/flow meter, flex daily schedule, other factors following my question.
I’ve observed I have one zone that is receiving slightly more water than it needs. Overall, all zones are being irrigated slightly more often than is necessary. What setting(s) would be appropriate to change so that overall watering is cut back and the one zone cut back slightly more?
Located in Lincoln, NE, our entire lawn is on heavy clay. Fescue turf. Home was built in 2016 so there’s little shade yet except that provided by the house. Primarily flat, two zones have a slight slope. I’m using Smart Cycle and Weather Intelligence.
With the one specific zone getting a bit over watered, I have changed the zone from full sun to partial shade, that helped a bit.
My other observation is that whether the lawn is irrigated or we receive rain, the zone moisture for all zones shown on the Rachio App drops faster than what I can see and feel even in hot weather. My workaround has been to manually skip a scheduled run for a day to three days until the actual moisture drops.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
