I am loving the new rachio system. I have a few ideas/questions.
It appears that Rachio doesn’t factor in whether a plant (for instance a tree) is mulched or not. Wouldn’t mulching having a significant impact on soil moisture level/EvapTran? Just wondering.
For all my drip line emitters, Rachio calculates my water usage based on my flow rate, flow time and the area of coverage. But many of my lines, especially around my newly-planted trees, aren’t laid out according to a simple geometry. (Many, for instance, are in spirals). Couldn’t I get a more accurate calculation of my water usage if Rachio allowed me to simply add up the number of emitters around a tree and calculate the flow rate of each individual emitter? Or is knowing the area necessary for calculating the ET rate?
I echo another user’s suggestion that I would be great for Rachio to have a setting for new trees versus established trees.
I think you have an awesome product and I’m so glad to have made the purchase. Thank you for all your awesome work!
