I just installed the Rachio 3 yesterday as a conversion from a different product that went EOL (the Roslen netAQUA 9D which was ahead of its time in 2013) . For sure a nearly painless conversion and everything came online as if nothing happened (7 Zones, Master Valve, and CST Flow). I think I spend more time deciding where to put the box than actually installing. Would have been great to skip the mobile device and go right to the web interface for the initial setup but everything was smooth sailing. But I digress.
Anyhow, one of my zones is actually inside and is a bunch of indoor plants in a large garden window. It’s all drip and very low flow even with everything running full blast. In fact, the normal flow is below the minimum 0.86 GPM that the CST can measure. So when I do the Flow Calibration it always fails because there isn’t a detectable flow. Nonetheless, I want to have leak detection for that zone like all the others - and especially because it’s inside.
Is there a way I can enable leak detection for that zone by specifying a manual calibration? When it fails the cal routine I am only presented with options to Cancel or Retry and cannot enable the leak detection at all in the zone settings because the cal did not successfully complete.
