Had fixed schedules in the past, because that was all that was available. Enter the Racho 3. At first set it up to more-or-less emulate what we’d had. But Flex Daily was calling to me.
When I first tried to set up Flex Daily, it was coming up with watering intervals and zone run times I knew couldn’t possibly be right. (E.g.: A zone that had been running 70 minutes per cycle, on even days, set to run for 30 minutes days apart.) Then I figured out what I could do with Advanced Settings.
Put in numbers for MAD and NIPH that yielded zone run times and a schedule nearly identical to what I knew worked in dry weather.
Then along came weather forecasts with a lot of rain over the next 9-10 days. It’s currently belaying watering for ten days.
It’ll be interesting to see what it does and how the plants and grass like it.
I will say this: We’ve had a really unusual spring and early summer, the result of which the lawn, at least, has been over-watered to the point of damage. Hopefully, the Rachio 3, with the right programming, will fix that.
