If I had confidence that I could get Flex Daily to work with drip irrigation, I would go that route. I’ve read a lot of posts from people who couldn’t get Flex Daily to work with drip. It seems like the the Rachio settings are complex and sometimes difficult to understand (and tricky for drip). I don’t want to spend weeks (or months) tweaking the settings to get it to work properly. So, I’m not that confident and I’d like to have a simple back-up plan.
I’m not looking for a “set it and forget it” strategy, just “set it and check it occasionally”.
I have a Rachio 3 from Costco still unopened in the box. I guess I could try it on Daily Flex and if it’s too much trouble I could return it.
