I’ve done calculations using the EvapoTranspiration Reference (ETo), Plant Factor (Pf), Soil Type, Water Holding Capacity, Irrigation Efficiency, and Precipitation Rate for my various zones on a client install.
Request 1: For my low water use zones (Pf = 0.2 of ETo), I’m getting an Irrigation Interval (II) of 31 days and a run time of 67 minutes. The rachio schedule settings only allow me to go to 21 days. I would love to be able to enter in my own interval and not be limited to predetermined days.
Request 2: can you create nozzle types that reference popular drip line systems with emitter rates of (0.4, 0.6, 0.9, 1.0 GPH - Hunter, Netafim, Rainbird, etc. all have those rates). Currently I have to calculate the conversion to in/hr from gph and then create a custom nozzle.
Request 3: as a contractor, it’d be awesome to be able to save multiple client accounts in my iPhone app so that I can login to different ones, or login to my own account and then control client accounts. Kinda like how MailChimp allows me to admin client campaigns from my own account, giving the client control to remove me if they wish. Then I don’t have to know their pass.
Request 4: The flex schedule gave me some crazy run times, and didn’t share a lot of info as to what it was going to be irrigating total volume wise, so I went to a fixed schedule. I need to read up more on how flex programing works because it seems awesome, but I was a bit put off by 2 hour and 45 minute irrigation times.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
