I’m confused. my flex schedule was set up to run last Thursday but I felt it did not need it due to precipitation so I put a rain delay in until Friday since the moisture for each zone was over 100%. The calendar showed that it would skip the Thursday watering and continue on Sunday. This seemed to be exactly what I had wanted it to do.
Now its Saturday morning and I wake up to the notification that it ran the full flex schedule, instead of tomorrow as the calendar showed last night. Now I understand that the calendar changes and I can deal with that, but i don’t like how the predictability is gone. I would like to check the calendar, and expect what I see to happen barring precipitation. This isn’t the case.
Here’s the most confusing part. Yesterday the moisture level for my zones was in the 60% range. Today, after a full watering, it is 53%. How is this possible? Now it wants to water again on Monday already! Just a couple days ago the level was over 100% due to rain, but now the sprinklers cant increase it at all?
So far I have tried as needed and flex schedules, and they change so much, most of the time the changes make sense, but there are consistently things that make me scratch my head. One thing is clear, I am having to pay so much attention to the system to make sure I’m not using even more water than I did with a dumb controller.
