I just purchased and installed a Rachio Gen 3 from Costco and an Everydrop 1004EX WIRED flow meter. First of all installation was not as easy as I thought. The most basic connection to the controller.
The 1004EX Has two wires. Black and red. I connected the red to the 24+ on the controller and the black to the S2 connection. The app appeared to recognize the flowmeter. The flow meter has no display which I am assuming it’s because I did not connect it to the positive and negative 24- and 24+. I ran the calibration tool in the app and the flow meter was registering 19.39 gpm. The app within freeze. I could not cancel the operation or set a value. Even when the calibration ended and the flow went to 0.0. Overall I cannot determine if the calibration was complete. I am assuming I installed the flowmeter to the controller just fine. Any advice?
What’s interesting is the Everydrop meter looks very similar to the Rachio wireless meter.
