I’m a new user trying to setup Rachio… I’m slowly troubleshooting all 6 zones I’ve installed so far, all are defined using default settings - the right soil type, sun etc.
I’ve started troubleshooting the simplest zone - my vegetables patch. It is an area of 5x4 (meters) with a grid of drip line - 1.6l per emitter, emitter every 30cm and a space of 50cm between lines. I’ve read through several support pages and tried the online drip irrigation precipitation calculator. I’ve done the math, plugged the number into a custom nuzzle, saved and… magically Rachio decided my vegetable patch needs 1 minute of watering. Although moisture level is low - it still thinks 1 minute will be enough. The area is a dessert like area, and water is needed.
