Hi there! I’m a brand new user. I’ve only had the system for 2 days! When I set the system up yesterday, I set my Flower Beds (2 Zones) to fixed schedule to water every day. The beds are only about 2 weeks old, new plantings. Both zones are Drip.
Today, my city notified me that my Watering Exemption Certificate is being suspended due to the severe drought here in Texas. I went to my Schedule to change from Fixed to Flex Daily and I can’t change it. Both Flex Monthly and Flex Daily are “grayed out”.
I’ve done some searches here, but I can’t see anything pertaining to my issue,
You can keep the fixed schedule if you wish - just disable it. You can also have more than one flex daily schedule as long as they’re not configured with ANY conflicts (I have “half the zones” alternate day flexes - in Texas).
I’ve often wondered why Rachio chose to make this the only way to change it. It’s been like this for all the years I’ve used Rachio and seems like a simple fix on the coding side but never fixed. If you have a lot of zones it is more time consuming than just simply being able to change it in the app for an existing schedule.
