I’ve had my Rachio Gen 2 for a couple of years and really enjoy it. I’ve always used the Fixed Schedule type due to watering restrictions in my city. For kicks, I created a second schedule (this time, a Flex Monthly) for comparison. My Fixed schedule shows a watering duration of 55 minutes, but the Flex Monthly schedule shows a watering duration of 3 hours 5 minutes with all other settings identical between the two schedules. Is that 3 hours 5 minutes per WEEK perhaps, or per session? If per session, why such a large difference?
- Able to run on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday
- 6 zones
- Smart Cycle for soaking
- Weather Intelligence is ON for all five settings (rain skip, freeze skip, wind skip, saturation skip, seasonal shift, although the seasonal shift check box doesn’t exist for the Flex Monthly schedule since it is inherent to that schedule type and can’t be turned off anyway)
