If I take 4 or 5 zones and set a quick run of 5 or 10 minutes each and say go, it only waters the first zone and doesn’t water the rest. Possibly I need to leave the app open on my phone for an hour?
You can put those 4 or 5 zones into their own schedule. Set that one to run and it will run the entire program.
@Lars Are these zones part of a index valve? Something like this:
If so, you will need to setup a short pause between zones in order for the index valve to switch to the next zone, without such pause, it will continue to supply water to a single zone.
Such pause is possible if the system is set to pump / well delay, more on this here:
