I just installed the new rachio controller, set up all the stations with the right soil type, plants, slope, sprinkler etc and test ran the whole system. Everything seems to work fine.
But when I add a Flexible Daily schedule the controller wants to water my stations for almost 15h (14h42m). Now that seems extensive but added to that, it wants to water everything for 15h tomorrow (Nov 17) after a couple of heavy rain days where the soil is already soaked with water. Also it will start raining again the following day and the day after (Nov 18 and 19). So there is no reason to water at all not even talking about 15h.
If I were to water my yard for 15h this would use about 12000 to 13000 gallons of water which means a water bill of about 90 - 100USD. So I don’t feel comfortable about just letting the system run and see if it will readjust later. I wouldn’t even be able to fit 15h of watering into the legal water times in my area (7p - 9a).
I hope I’m missing something. Any advice on what’s going on there?
