Gen 3 flow meter leak detection ... wow!

I went to run my landscape zones last night & when I woke up this morning I had received an error that there was a high flow detection and one of the zones was disabled. I assumed it was some type of error so I checked out the zone this morning and noticed a mini geyser where a Rainbird 4 VAN broke off. Ordered a replacement first thing this morning. All I have to say is thank you Rachio!


This is why all sprinkler systems should have a flowmeter. Drive through any random neighborhood and probably 20% of homes have at least one geyser watering the sidewalk just like you had. Since most people water during the night, most don’t even know there is a problem until the grass starts dying.
