Ok, This is Crazy!
I’m about fed up with Rachio!
Been in the 80°’s and sometimes in the 90°’s this last week. Today is supposed to be cloudy.
Today all my 6 zones were supposed to water, only the 2 on fixed are going to. Why because all my moisture level in my flexed schedules went to so much by themselves.
How did my moisture go up so much in one way when it was hot and no rain or watering?
Zone 1 was 15%, zone 2 was 31%, zone 4 was 10% & zone 6 was 11% yesterday 5/23/20 and hasn’t watered since 5/22/20.
All my zones 1&2 are on flex daily, zone 4&6 flex daily are now on 110% in one day without rain or watering?
They aren’t going to water today because there moisture levels went to so high.
How is that possible?
Now the next day they are supposed to water is in 7 days, 5/29/20.
My zone 3 & 5 which were are on fixed (they are my drip zones) are watering.
What is going on?
Then looking at the calendar Rachio’s deciding to water one of my zones outside its restriction?
I have 3 schedules. 2 flex schedules and 1 fixed schedule. They are all set to water on Sun, Wed & Friday.
On my calendar it shows the next watering as Wed only 2 zones Zone 3&5 which are fixed.
Then on Thursday (outside its watering restriction) it’s going to water zone 3 & 5 again even though it just watered them the day before. Why is it going to water outside it’s water restriction and the way I have it setup in the settings to only water on Sun, Wed & Fri.
Then look at the 1st and 2nd week of June.
The 1st week of June it’s going to water almost everyday! Then the 3rd week it’s going to go back to its restrictions and use the settings I actually have set up?
Again how can the moisture in my zones go up over 60% in one day with no rain, high temperature and no watering and decide is not going to water?
Then again how come it decides it want to water outside of the days I setup up in the settings. It’s going to water outside of my watering restrictions. This is not only going to use more water, but could cause me to get in trouble with the city for watering outside if the watering restrictions.
What good is a controller that is not going to go by its settings on watering days.
I never had this issue with my previous Hunter XCore controller that I had the Hunter Solar Sync hooked up to.,
