As Needed runs more often but less water

So my Flex schedule had my front yard grass zones running about once every 7 days at about 1.5 hours per zone. The As Needed schedule runs those same zones every other day for 18 minutes.

What are these so different? Seems like the As-Needed schedules water very shallow.

PS. I didn’t change sprinkle head type, soil makeup, etc.


@jmed999, I believe you probably created 1 schedule that mixes different vegetation types.

I’m not sure if you’ve seen this thread, but I think it will address some of your questions:
