I recently bought a Gen 1 controller, and after using the “as needed” scheduling, my first run went almost nine hours! I thought this was wrong, so I have been researching here to see maybe what I’ve been doing wrong, and read that accurate square footage really helps with the watering times, so I went out and measured each zone and reduced the square footage by almost 60% overall.
Now it wants to water for 10h, and more frequently!!!
Can someone please offer some tips, as this seems ridiculously high. I used to water for about 1.5h 2x/week and my lawn always looked fine.
