I have been using a fixed schedule which waters three zones for 18-20 minutes each, every three days. I thought I’d experiment with a Flex Daily schedule, but when I did the set-up, it indicates the total duration is 3 hours and 10 minutes (!). Even with Smart Cycle enabled, I don’t see why the total time should be so long, unless there are lengthy intervals after the schedule has kicked off where no watering is occurring in any zone.
Also, a document on the Rachio support site indicates that Smart Cycle is disabled for a zone if there are any emitters, bubblers, or misters in the zone. The Flex Daily schedule I set up seems to allow Smart Cycle as an option though a zone in the schedule does have the Spray Head type defined as Emitter. Is the Smart Cycle setting just going to be ignored? Seems like it ought to not be a choosable option.
If someone can clarify these two items, I’d appreciate it.
