I have an issue previously noted where I have flex daily enabled and about 11 zones which when running 100% starts at 3:30am and ends about 4pm according to Rachio.
In the day time it’s about 90 currently. Watering during mid day in the 90s would result in burnt grass and most of it evaporating. While Rachio is aware of this and I’m sure eventually will issue an official, fix looking for a temp work around. To note, dividing half the zones into one schedule and half into another doesn’t work since rachio still attempts to water both in one day. Yes you could set one of those schedules to 50% moisture and the other 100%, but once it rains naturally a lot they both would be 100% and wouldn’t work anymore.
Anyhoo, so my question is would a manual rain relay work as a temporary manual fix? That is scheduled to water tomorrow at 3:30am. Once it’s say 11am, can I issue a “1” day rain delay at 11am, at which time it would stop watering. And then the following day at 3:30am it would start watering the remaining zones? Thus avoiding the issue of watering mid day?
Or by 1 day water delay would that mean rachio would delay watering until 11:30am the following day, thus defeating the purpose?
