So this morning my Rachio 3 used “Freeze Skip” on my Flex Daily, odd day only, before sunrise, schedule. Basically the temperature was 30-31 degrees between midnight and sunrise. GREAT FEATURE! However my soil moisture depletion is at 0 now and the next scheduled watering is 48 hours from because of my “odd day only” rules related to where I live.
Prior to skipping the run I had the option to click “Run” and force it to water. Obviously I didn’t do that. However I would LOVE the ability to manually get it to preform the scheduled irrigation at a later time, shortly after sunrise its already well over 40 degrees and safe to water but my only option is to design a custom run because once the skip has passed the Rachio only plans for the next entire allowed to water day.
While I certainly can “guesstimate” what it planned to do had it not skipped it would be so nice to get the planned custom run (with times appropriate to each zone, run off protection etc.) to still be available for later use at the click of a button. As it stands I basically had to create a manual run of 15 minutes a zone, let it run, then do it again to approximate what it would have done. Close enough but more work than needed AND not as accurate (although I know the next watering will flex to adjust.) Basically on freeze or wind skipped days give us a button throughout the day that forces it to water based on what the flexed schedule would have done had it not skipped but at our command.
Hope this made sense. Thanks for what you all do!
