I just picked up a new 8 zone 2nd get unit and outside housing.
Since it was raining all day and my unit is outside (Hunter Pro C), I decided to RTFM and setup the unit and zones before wiring it up.
All went smooth, setup zones, soil, heads…ect, even went in and adjusted the sq feet of the zones.
Question are around the scheduling and run time.
I choose the WAN, whats the point of the upgrade if I am just using a schedule
It told me that it would water for over 3 hours basically twice a week, so 6 hours total weekly.
Even in the middle of the summer my Hunter would only run 1 hour a day, so it would take watering 6 days to total my spring setting the Rachio is suggesting.
Also, it says it wants to water tomorrow…it rained like 7 hours today. I might ignore this since it has not “learned” my schedule and settings, but my Hunter is already turned off due to the rain sensor.
I am 10 miles outside of Boston incase you want to know my location.
