So it’s been raining a lot here over the last week or so and the ground is saturated. I checked Rachio before I went to bed last night, and the home screen showed it was skipping due to weather intelligence and ground saturation. I wake up this morning and discover the sprinklers ran anyway.
Looking at my history it appears that at the normal scheduled run time Rachio re-evaluated and decided there hadn’t been any rain and none was forecast, so it changed its mind and dumped 1200 gallons of water on my saturated lawn. What gives?
The conditions haven’t changed, the ground was still saturated. I would have performed a manual skip if Rachio hadn’t already decided to skip based on weather intelligence, and didn’t even have the option to manually skip at that point. How can I prevent this situation in the future? I would like to rely on the unit to not run if it says it won’t.
