I live in the Los Angeles area and according to LADWP, i am only allowed to water Su, Tu, Thu for a max of 8 min per zone.
I just installed my Iro and system suggested watering times of 5 min per zone every three days - not surprised since it’s winter right now and so it’s cooler, sun is lower, etc. But the suggested schedule does not meet the watering restrictions - so now what am I supposed to do?
I could go manually edit the watering times to make a Su/Tu/Th at 3 min per (roughly keeps the same water per week) and tick the “Is this a watering restriction?” toggle. If I do that will will the Water Budgeting then up the times as the weather gets warmer and we get into spring/summer, but keep the days fixed?
How do I deal with the “Max of 8 min per zone” restriction we have as well? Should I set the times to 8 min and then use the “Seasonal Adjustment” to bring it to ~3min now?
Can someone tell me exactly what turning on “Is this a watering restriction?” does? Does it lock the days? both days and times? days times and durations??
By the way, this should all be WAY easier to figure out than it is… Shouldn’t you ask the user enter whatever water restrictions are in play FIRST, then figure out / suggest the watering times accounting for the restrictions?
