Rachio 3 + water flow meter, 240v required-unusual!

The web site does NOT specify 240v vs. 120v.

A Customer Rep responded 240v and 24 v output.

That is quite unusual for a sprinkler controller.

Why is 240v used here? It is expensive to bring that service to where the unit will be mounted.

Located in Miami Beach, Fl.

@tweiss4208 Where are you seeing that requirement? We require a standard 120V.
