Improving Skipped Water Cycles


#1

I recently had a skipped watering event triggered by a rainfall forecast. The rain occurred, but it was a spritzing, so it wasn’t enough to take care of the landscape. Here are two recommendations for features to improve the watering algorithm that eliminates the need for manual overrides:
1- Check the weather station the next day after the skip event. If insufficient rain fell (below the threshold setting), then run the cycle the next day.

2- Shift the subsequent watering days out by one day.

Hey @MrWoody-

Thank you for the feedback! It sounds like you may want to make the switch to our Flexible Daily Schedule- it functions very similar to how you just described. More info on that can be found here! Let me know what you think.

I’m a flex user and that is exactly what the flex daily schdule does, it’s great.
