Precipitation data - bad or substituted


#1

I’m running my own PWS which went down for a few days. Now I’m seeing precipitation data in my soil moisture graphs.

Not sure what is going on here - I would have expected to see zeros.

Additionally it shows today’s date - with rainfall and not a forecast amount.

I’m in Australia GMT +10

This does not seem right to me - I’m running an as needed schedule. I have not had a zone run since the bug update. While this is probably right - seeing dodgy precipitation data makes me nervous.

Can I trust my Rachio???


Precipitation recording has gone wacko

If a PWS stops submitting data, the Rachio defaults to the nearest National Weather Station.
