Good afternoon, and I’m new here! I just successfully installed my Rachio unit, configured, zones set up and set my Flex Monthly schedule! My first watering will occur on Monday (asked it to skip Sunday due to egg hunting tomorrow) but a bit of a head scratcher on the Watering Duration the app used by default. I live in North Florida, the Jacksonville area, with Saint Augustine grass. With my previous controller, my two main zones were set to 45 minutes each. That might have been a bit excessive. I know that some of my grass doesn’t have deep roots where we’ve pulled up a runner and seen how short they are so looking to set the Rachio better than before.
The default setting was to run those zones for 13 minutes now but I feel I should bump those up right away. Or should I leave it like that and see what happens before bumping it up. Was thinking of doing a can test which I’ve not done before. I’ve seen some neighbors with a lot more water flow come out of their heads then I see from mine.
