@cfwiggum, thanks for reaching out. Great questions, I’ll do my best to answer them below:
Are your drip zones divided by type of plant and/or type of emitter? i.e. Do shrubs have their own zone, trees another, etc and matching nozzles on each…or is it mixed and matched? Pending how your system was designed will play a key role in how the Iro will handle your watering schedules. Ideally, the system was designed and divided into unique hydrazones that have similar attributes.
We do not currently have an establishment watering feature to adjust for new plantings. You will need to override the recommended watering durations to account for this. However, please remember that the Iro will water to an established shrub/tree/perennial root zone depth. As new plantings have swallow root zone depths, this will likely offset the need to add more time to the watering duration.
I’d recommend seeing what the Iro recommends and decide if that sounds correct for your yard. If you have a zone with multiple hydrazones, we’ll need to override the recommendation as the Iro does not accept multiple vegetation and/or nozzle selections on a zone by zone basis.
Hope this helps.
