just installed a gen 3 rachio/8 zone controller and two (for now) dripline zones in my austin texas yard. i have manual start/stop watering schedules set for two newly planted zones, as well as “smart cycle/cycle and soak” enabled.
my history shows there is no “start/stopping” during either of my 40 minute scheduled run-times per zone. i spoke with tech support 2 days ago, who told me to change my spray nozzle setting from “dripline” to “rotary head” to try and work around any auto-ignore for smart cycle…but my understanding is that issue (with driplines not working with smart cycle) was resolved with the gen 3 units. in any case, i changed my nozzle-type to “rotary head” AND increased my zone run-times, but got the same results…no breaking up of my total run-time to allow for the “soak” part of “cycle and soak:” to take effect…rather the zones run their entire set time continuously, start to finish. any advice?
