Hi, I am in the middle of installing an irrigation system and am thinking about buying a rachio to control it but I have a question.
Can rachio open two valves in order to water a single zone?
To explain: I am going to start with a simple ezyvalve 4 solenoid box, which will be beneath the tap, near the house, to water beds and plants. I am not installing any sprinklers.
Only one of those zones will go down to the beds at the back of my garden/yard (I am British), so there will only be one hose going to the back (the rest are going to the front yard). And I am not digging a trench, I’m running it around the perimeter of the garden, by the fence, concealed in beds. Let’s call this Zone 2.
But EVENTUALLY, my plan is to buy a SECOND four valve box, which I would bury at the BACK of the garden, and run the one hose from the house directly into it, then use that one to dig trenches from to water the lawn. It is much easier this way, otherwise I would have to start digging up patios and all sorts.
But if I then made my lawn sprinklers Zones 5 and 6, they would only work if, when you select to water Zone 5, Rachio knows to open BOTH Zone 2 AND Zone 5.
Can it do that easily?
