Drought conditions: please reduce outdoor water use 25%


Eagle River and Sanitation District in Colorado asked everyone to reduce outdoor water use 25% due to Drought Conditions.

I ratcheted back the “Don’t water” feature on my Rachio 3 when .125 inches of rain falls to a .065 and when winds are 20 mph down to 15 mph.

Are their other settings that would lower water use?

This 25% reduction could be a good software update for Rachio’s Mobile App! Simply tell Rachio to reduce and it’ll activate an algorithm of multiple settings.


What schedule type are you using? On Flex Daily, if you go into the schedule, you can select “duration” and you can manually dial back the run times 25%…Not sure if this is the same for Flex Monthly and whatnot.
