So I want to preface this by saying, I’m on day 2 of Rachio IRO and I’m beyond happy. Everything I’ve needed to know support and this forum has helped me with. Happy owner!
That being said (I didn’t say but haha), I’m having a couple of issues. First one is understanding flex vs. fixed scheduling and might also have a slight bug.
My grass areas are set to a Flex schedule and they’re showing up about every 2 to 3 days with what I believe is great watering times and 30 minute rests between cycles starting at 5am. Everything looks good IF it hadn’t rained today. We got a pretty good rain out by DIA (Denver Internation Airport) in Reunion so I looked at my app hoping to see that this might have been taken into consideration. All looks to be scheduled tomorrow with no time reduction or anything like that. So does weather only come into play on fixed schedules?
Next question is my drip lines. I have them on a separate schedule figuring this was best practice and they were scheduled to run at about an hour interval on the 22nd. It rained today and now the “Drip Lines” zone is showing “Not Scheduled”. I’ve even tried removing the schedule and putting it back again, still showing as “not scheduled”. This could be something I have to write to support, but curious if someone else has had the issue. I like the idea that flex schedules remove pretty much everything I’ve ever thought about watering, because after reading these forums and all the documentation, boy have I been wrong! Yes, I too was one of those “water 5 minutes every day” people. Apparently never really doing an effective job.
Still a very happy customer and looking forward to feedback. Hope I got all the proper information in here.
Nice to meet everyone.
