I’m wondering if anyone has noticed an increase in their electrical usage after installing a Rachio sprinkler system. Mine has doubled since July when we had it installed by an electrician.
The power draw of the Rachio is only a few watts. But if your irrigation system involves a pump, there could be a configuration issue or defect that is causing the pump to run continuously. Or, if you’re on a well, a valve could be stuck open causing the well pump to run excessively.
Thanks. I’ll have my sprinkler guy check it out when he comes to close it down at the end of this month.
