Schedule conflict on same manifold


#1

I currently have all my zones on flex schedules. One thing I noticed is that the zones are watering at the same time. If the zones are on different manifolds I have sufficient water pressure to water more than one zone at the same time. However, since I have a pressure regulator on each manifold, I don’t have sufficient pressure to drive all the emitters if more than one zone is active on the same manifold. How do I deconflict this? Here is an example of the schedule events showing conflict:
Today at 5:32 AM
Watered Pots and Flowers Mission Garden for 16 minutes

Today at 5:32 AM
Completed water the yard for 33 minutes

Today at 5:16 AM
Watering Pots and Flowers Mission Garden for 16 minutes

Today at 5:16 AM
Watered Vegetable Raised Beds for 16 minutes

Today at 4:59 AM
Watering Vegetable Raised Beds for 16 minutes

Today at 4:59 AM
Started water the yard for 33 minutes

Yesterday at 5:22 AM
Completed water the yard for 22 minutes

Based on that I don’t see a conflict…both zones ran for 16 minutes in series for a total of 33. It shouldn’t ever run 2 zones simultaneously as far as I know…

The conflict is below (ie. 2 zones at the same time on the same manifold)
-----------------------------------------------:
Today at 5:16 AM
Watering Pots and Flowers Mission Garden for 16 minutes

Today at 5:16 AM
Watered Vegetable Raised Beds for 16 minutes

They were on the same schedule – one would assume that the zones would be activated serially on the same schedule rather than all at once

One says “watered” and the other says “watering”. Not the best way to present it, but meaning one is finished and the other is starting.

Well then… Maybe I should take a reading class. THanks!
