I just installed my new Gen2 controller for a very small (230sq ft) front lawn in a middle-unit rowhouse. I have 8 MP Rotator 1000 sprinkler heads that cover the entire tiny rectangle-of-a-lawn. I also have 7 different shrubs with a drip line as a second zone, separate from the yard.
When I plugged in all the data for my zones (including the square footage in the advanced settings), the Daily Flex Schedule still came up with a very high watering duration. It came up with:
- Grass for 41 minutes
- Shrubs for 3 hours and 10 minutes
- Grass again for 41 minutes
Does that sound unreasonably long to anyone else? I’ve gone through my zone settings very carefully, and even had a landscaper double check the settings with me by my side.
