Rain


#1

I just set up my unit a week ago and I am very pleased. However I have a question about rain. It started raining this morning an then a couple of hours later I checked all of my zones. It tells me that my zones went from about 30% moisture to 150% moisture. This morning it was on and off light drizzle. From the weather station that I have associated with my account, it tells me that it rained .26 inches up until I checked my zones.

Does .26 inches of rain equate to 120% moisture levels? All 6 of my zones are at 150% now. I’m just trying to understand how this is all calculated.
Thanks.

@pmolan, great question. The moisture level percentage is dependent on the soil type, root zone depth, and allowed depletion settings selected for each zone. The percentage above 100% is based on a saturation allowance that is dependent on the soil type.
