I installed Rachio yesterday and learning all I can to make its flex schedule more accurate.
From the threads of these forums, I get that I need to do ‘catch cup’ test to get reliable precipitation data.
Instead of this, can I do the following?
I can measure number of gallons of water a zone used in given time ( say 5 minutes) by noting down the water meter numbers outside the home.
Given this info, is there a formula to determine the effective precipitation rate (I.e. In per hour) for that zone?
