Living in Austin Texas we have a once a week water restriction. Automatic sprinkler systems may operate between midnight and 5 a.m. and between 7 p.m. and midnight on my watering day (Wednesday).
Given this do I use Fixed or Flex or a combination of both?
Pro: I also love the idea of season updates automatically adjusting my watering times.
Cons: The Initial setup times are based on a 3 day a week andI have no idea how much time each zone should be given a single day. Season updates updates the time but assumes that my guess on times were correct. As I am fine tuning the zone variables the times don’'t adjust. I am now having to make more guesses on time.
Pro: Automatically changes based on adjustments to the variables of each zone. It has a pretty simple 5 level more/Less scale on watering time if an zone is not getting the water it needs vs me guessing how many minutes to add.
Con: Times don’t adjust only water intervals. Since I can only water on Wednesday I am kind of stuck with how I initially set it up.
Is my best option to set my Fixed times to mirror Flex as a starting point?
