Quick start guide


Been looking at some of the user comments regarding basic operation

Seems the app can make a basic set up and operation more involved than I need

How can I (not the app) control how long each zone waters? Is there a way to increase ALL zones run times, say 20%

As far as I have seen, each zone needs to be reconfigured. That is far too time consuming

I wonder how many folks also find adjusting these type of changes a challenge? The app seems overly complicated

Is there a write up somewhere for Rachio dummies?



This might be a starting point.


I was looking for directions for super simple control of zone run times.

Can the app operate without ‘smart features’,
unleast til I am comfortable with the basics?


Yep, just create a fixed schedule and turn off Smart Cycle and Weather Intelligence when you do.


Can that set up happen without using the Wizard?

It asks too many questions which I can not answer.


Hey @bukzin-

Are you looking for a one time run? If so, the manual run may be the feature you are looking for.
