Ok, so I’ve used Rachio gen 1 for two full seasons on 2 different yards now (I took Rachio with me when I moved). Same problem each yard / season, too little recommended water unless I set times myself as evidenced with yellowing lawn. So last year I didn’t have time to figure out what was going wrong so just used a lot of water in timed zones like a standard rainbird clock.
I’m ready to try again fresh this year and, oh my, the knowledge base! 21 articles just on schedules? I really just want to water the grass, not become a biologist, landscaper or hydrologist. I just don’t have time to study everything here though I wish I could.
What is the best way for me to quick start and adjust as I see the results while taking advantage of some basic features/advantages like seasonal shifts and rain delays? I’d like to save water but my time available for this device tinkering is limited.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can respond.
