New Rachio 3 and program

Lawn care provider recommended each zone to run 45 minutes twice weekly.
Any advice? Eastern MA location .

I would say that is great advice if you had an old school / non-smart controller

Terrible advice when using a Rachio

Sounds like they are building job security. :grinning:

What kind of grass, soil, sprinkler heads, …?

Lots to consider to determine water requirements for each zone.

Also, you’d need to tell us what your zone types are and how many and such before anyone could give you any real suggestions or tips. But I’d not do what the lawn guys said, getting. You get a rachio to avoid that kind of scheduling.
