I tried to setup Fixed Schedule for watering on two primary days of the week (deep watering), and combine it with a Flex Daily to make sure that in the rest of the week, the grass still has enough water to make it to next Fixed Schedule day. But I soon realized that they do not work well together. Flex Daily soil moisture graph did not include any of the Fixed Schedule future watering. And one night I had same zone watered over capacity by both Fixed Schedule and later Flex Daily.
I wonder if Flex Daily (or new scheduling strategy) could have a feature to schedule deep watering grass up to field capacity on select days (e.g. 2 days of the week), and on other days it would water only if soil moisture goes below 0% and enough to make it to next deep watering day.
I haven’t thought through this in details. For example, what happens if there is rain in the forecast. I think for the deep watering days, the schedule can subtract forecasted rain till next deep watering day from reaching field capacity and only apply that much water.
Is there an interest from others for this type of schedule? And is this a schedule that could be implemented simply with current stack?
