I second this. My Zones #3 & #6 cycle soak, but Rachio only appears to interleave “forward.” Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Zones #4, #5, & #6 will interleave with cycle soaks on Zone #3, but #1-5 will not interleave with Zone #6. Similarly, my Zones #1 & #2 will not interleave with #3. It leads to longer durations.
I understand that this is easy logic for humans but not for a relatively simple machine like Rachio (which still maintains some of the logic of a traditional controller). But this is similar to scheduling Finish Before Sunrise, where the desired outcome is to minimize the start-to-finish time by always having the water running.
I have no intention of re-wiring my base and reprogramming my zones to make this work.
