first time rachio (new) user, but not a total luddite… evolving from an old-school orbit timer where each station (6) ran between 30 and 60mins each — mostly via drip (1/2 and 1gal heads) and a section via rotator sprinkler. everything was fine.
the auto schedule for rachio (flex-daily) was set up and the schedule is whack — 2.5 hours for some drip areas and 45m for others (and 4min for the rotator). all soil is clay-loam with little/no slope and all areas are a mix of shrubs and perennials… with the rotator being lawn. i caught it before my lawn died from thirst. even set to finish before sunrise, it was watering my lawn at 5PM.
now i’m back to manually timing it, but i’m really no better off than with the older orbit. using some sort of weather-specific intel would be nice. emails to support yielded the equivalent to “turn it on/off”. happy to give any details, but any wisdom on why it’s so random?
[edit: should i shift this to the flex-forum?]
