I am coming on my fifth summer using Rachio and the biggest thing I wish you could add is simplification. After getting burned (well my grass got burned) with various automatic scheduling schemes like the flex schedule, I have settled to my city’s recommended and time tested system of watering once/week in the winter, every four then three days in early spring, every other day starting in June, then tapering off with the fall. That system works great with one exception — Rachio keeps getting in my way.
You see, when I put it at every three days, Rachio wants to come in on each month and increase how long it waters for those three days. Well, then I have to go in and reset the time back to what it was. And, of course, Rachio doesn’t know about the 7432 schedule so I have to set reminders to myself to change the frequency most months.
So. Request 1) Give me a way to keep Rachio from automatically adjusting anything what so ever. I would rather do it myself than have Rachio do it wrong.
Request 2) Come up with something like the 7432 schedule as an option to the flex schedule.
