Rachio & drip irrigation settings


#1

I just got my Rachio 3 8 port unit today and started my setup, but have some questions on configuration. Port 1 is for my Muskidine grapes, 6 plants with 2 0.5 gallon per hour so that’s 12 gallons per hour for the 6 plants. Ports 2-5 are for my 4 raised beds (4’ X 8’ X 18") , 1 port per bed, however they are still being built so I don’t know total dipper count (all for veggie garden). Ports 6-8 are for my fruit trees 1 port per 2 trees, 2 2 gallon per hour drippers per tree.
I do have a rain sensor installed, but plan on using the daily flex schedule. What I am asking for is recommendations on settings, especially in the advanced section.
Thank you in advance.
Mike
