So I installed my Rachio 3 last month. The default setting that it set up for me was a schedule of about every second or sometimes ever 3rd day. I liked the way the days looked but what I didn’t think looked right was the water times being what I thought were going to be too short. I have four zones but that majority of my yard is watered via 2 of those zones. The default it wanted to do was around 15 minutes. Now I MAY have been overwatering before Rachio, I would run those an hour but I figured lets try 30 minutes in those zones. Basically I doubled all the default times it suggested.
Now, we’ve moved in to the next month and here in Florida (should have mentioned that sooner) we got a LOT of rain in April. Can I just tell you how much I love the feature that it suspends running if it is going to rain or has just rained?! Number 1 feature in my book! But I got an email here at the beginning of May that my Flex monthly schedule has been changed. The times have goon back to being cut in half, and now it wants to water every 1.7 days. But that shows up on the calendar as every day.
SO what is the communities thoughts on that? I’m thinking I should push it back to closer to what it was set yesterday, zone time wise as well as watering days not being every day.
