The new feature that detects flow when there is no manual or scheduled run is a great addition to the functionality of the Rachio3 & Flow Sensor.
I believe a simple enhancement would add tremendous value to that feature. Currently my schedule runs every 3 days, so the Inactive Flow Check will only alert on a potential leak/issue up to 3 days after the issue begins - could be a huge amount of water wasted in that time.
To get around this, I’ve created a schedule for one of my zones to run every 4 hours for 1 minute, which will now alert me to a leak/issue at most after 4 hours - also a waste of water and not great for the shrubs.
Could Rachio add a feature to check for Inactive Flow on a schedule outside of a scheduled or manual run? Ideally we could choose to have the check run at least every 4 hours, which will protect us from wasted water in the event of a valve or pipe break.
