Fill bird bath


#1

Fill bird bath
Here in Sierra Vista, AZ, it gets quite hot and around 10% humidity in the late spring and summer. Having a bird bath always filled is a desire of ours.

We have the 3rd gen Rachio and found the interval watering schedule which is an improvement over the previous gens.

We will run the zone every 4 hours for 4 minutes to keep the birds baths filled and fresh.

However, it doesn’t need to run 24/7. It just needs to run during set hours. If it could run from 6am to 6pm would save some water and still keep the birds happy. If there is a way to do that I haven’t found it.

Rachio works very well with our trees, potted plants and raised gardens. Thanks for all your hard work!

I would set it up on 2 cycle and soak programs. Start 1at 6am with a 4 hour soak then start the 2nd cycle/soak at 2pm with the same 4 hour soak.

I’ll give that a try, thanks! Sounds a lot better than interval.

When you run a cycle and soak no other zones will water until that cycle and soak is complete. Love cycle and soak but it has limitations…
