I’m new to the Rachio family and have run into an issue that seems to be a feature lacking in the app. I recently overseeded and patched some of the more barren areas and need to keep it moist for the next 2 weeks for proper seed germination.
What I would like to do is water 3 times per day - early morning, mid-day, and late evening. It seems I can set an interval of 6 hrs, but then it waters in the middle of the night, and with the cool weather, that is a waste of water and water in my area is expensive. 8 hr intervals would give me the three watering, but but there is no way to do that. Setting a start time of 6 am would work at 6 hr intervals if I could limit it to 3 intervals, but that’s not an option either. If you pick a fixed schedule, then you are forced to pick an interval (which is limited to 6 hr max) and no option to set the number of intervals.
The only option is to activate a “quick run” manually at the times and durations every time which negates the functionality that Rachio should be providing.
