Quick run and moisture percentage

Hi, I have a question about manual quick runs and moisture percentage on flex daily schedules.

If I run a zone on manual for a certain amount of time, will it increase the moisture level for that zone? Note this watering would be performed manually, and not by the automation by the flex daily schedule.

Yes…if you run it from Rachio. If you are running it by manually turning the bleed screw/solenoid at the valve, then no.


when it reaches 100%, will the rachio 3 not let that zone run?

Not quite following @proedgebiker…are you asking if a manual run fill moisture level 100% will cause a schedule not to run? If so, then the answer is probably, unless your zone has a massive ET, super sandy soils, or some other variable that drops the moisture level quickly.

I just did a quick through the Rachio and observed no change in the zone’s moisture level. Is there a delay between the watering and an updated moisture level?

How long of a run? It’s usually pretty quick to update.

5 minutes.
