I have several schedules for my property covering the lawn, a veggie garden and several flower gardens covered and non-covered) all on different zones. For some of these schedules, rain skip is enabled with appropriate thresholds. For other zones, i have disabled rain skip since they may be annuals under shelter that would not actually receive rainwater if there was precipitation.
My issue is that on any day where there is enough rain forecasted to cause a rain delay for schedules that observe it, this also causes other schedules to also skip watering even if those schedules have rain skip disabled!
The bug is not so apparent in the App GUI, however, its easy to spot and easy to see when your zones are not getting water. You will typically see a message in the schedule updates indicating a rain delay for an observant schedule:
Water Lawn skipped since station KWRI observed 0.16 in and predicted 0.37 in of precipitation with a total threshold of 0.125
Then you’ll see a non-observant schedule print a msg ignoring the rain delay:
Water Front Flower Pots was not skipped since the forecast service observed 0.0 in and predicted 0.0 in of precipitation and the total threshold is 0.125 in
After that, the schedule will NOT actually trigger and there will not be any record of it in the Watering History. And its not just a phantom message either, absolutely no water will be sent to these zones and i have several that are affected by this bug. Basically i have to constantly look for missed waterings and run schedules manually thereby defeating the intelligence factor. Support has no idea how to correct it and has suggested all manner of schedule time offsets and changes but to no improvement.
