Due to the unique nature of my house (Insulated panels), the hose bibs are not part of the plumbing but are on a single zone on my sprinkler system. I would like to be able to have the “Hose Bib” zone on from 5 AM to 10 PM (off at night). The UI of the Rachio App only allows entering the duration with an up or down arrow that only increments a minute at a time. Clicking the up arrow 900 times is just to painful to be worth it. Might I suggest being able to type in a duration or an end time?
The benefits of hose bibs on a sprinkler system zone are:
- The water pressure is at city water pressure (110 psi) vs house pressure of 60 psi.
- If a hose bib freezes it is outside of the house and it’s plumbing, limiting potential damage.
- I can turn the hose bib zone on or off at will, separate from the house’s plumbing. (If I can set it up in Rachio)
- I can put hose bibs anywhere I want, at anytime, and at low cost.
