I’m new, and before I dive in too far, I have some basic questions:
To my understanding, Rachio “daily flex scheduling” is based on a modeling of soil conditions, plant requirements, irrigation system performance, environmental conditions, etc. The model is described by parameters in the advanced settings.
So if I set up my zone as best I can, and select daily flex scheduling., then the system will select a schedule of irrigation according to the model and changing environmental factors.
Here is the question: If the amount of watering being applied does not seem quite right, how does one tweak the performance? Is the only option to tweak the various parameters in an attempt to make them more accurate? Or can you, for instance, manually increase the run time on a schedule, such that the baseline water level is increased, and then allow the flex scheduling to modify up or down from there?
Will it always use a daily schedule, or will it ever operate on a 2 day or 3 day interval, for instance?
Thanks for the help.
