Thanks for the quick reply.
My 30 year old sprinkler system has a very large backyard zone. I now have a garden bed at the start of that zone. The original valve is roughly 70 feet away in the front yard.
This past weekend I added a new valve just after the garden bed on an easily accessed pipe. I wired this to a new zone on my Rachio controller installed last summer.
My intent was to work this second valve in concert with the original valve so the garden could be watered more often than the entire zone. This would save a lot of water.
In my desired future state:
- Water garden only -> original zone powered on, new zone left off
- Water entire zone including garden -> original valve powered on and new valve powered on simultaneously.
Does that better explain my failed plan? Might there be dev underway that could meet that need or perhaps a workaround?
