Questions about Moving from Flex to Fixed

Since installing my Rachio in September ‘15 I’ve been running a flex schedule and haven’t had any issues.

We have watering restrictions that for the most part I was following. The water utility switched out my meter and I wanted to make sure that my watering times fell into the allowed windows. I found the SAWS article in the support section and set up a fixed schedule.

Will flex still skip days if we have enough saturation?

Should I have switched to fixed? Was there a way to make the flex use one or both of the windows in which we can water?

I loved the set and forget aspects of the flex and don’t want to have to keep adjusting the fixed schedule if I don’t have to.
