I don’t know if they’ll ever implement that, so I got a used RainMachine HD12 on eBay.
I am glad the flex daily schedule works well for you.
I want to use the 1,2,3,2,1 watering technique. To do this, I need to setup a start/end date for each window. Currently, this is only possible if I go in each year to adjust the end dates as it includes the year.
Regardless, even if I use Flex Daily, I will still need to go in each year to set the system to standby mode, so it doesn’t water during the winter, as I have no need for that.
So, whatever I choose, I am stuck with having to go into the system to make changes each year. While the Flex Daily schedule would most likely work for most people, enabling a feature to repeat each year instead of only that one year doesn’t seem that far-fetched of a request.
It’s baffling to me why Rachio wasn’t implemented this yet. All they need is a “repeat” button.
It is really simple to enable and disable schedules as needed. I keep a number of seed schedules, and just enable them in the fall when I’m overseeding…
Will enabled schedules automatically repeat every year?
Not if you put an end date to the schedule, but that’s what I’m saying, to disable a schedule is as easy as a tap of the screen.
But if you have a different schedule for each month (or 2 months, or 3 months, …), then each time you have to disable one and enable the one for the next period.
