So I bought the rachio in July after getting tired of wasting water. I have a rain sensor but I live in Seattle and the rain sensor only helps you when it has already rained. So what happened is I would water and then it would rain. Anyway…
I bought the rachio, although I know nothing about landscaping (this is a yard in the new house we built). But I am techie. So I replaced the old Hunter with new Rachio, set it up to the best of my ability, and set it to ‘flex schedule’. The weather station shows 11 miles away from my house (nothing closer). This might sound like an infomercial but I just ‘set it and forget it’. It waters when it needs, it know when it has rained and when it will rain. The schedule at which it engages seems to make sense (week without rain? it is on it!). The grass is always green. I don’t know if I am saving money on water yet (not enough data).
I am writing this because I see people having issues with flex schedules and reverting to fixed etc. Am I missing something? As I said, I know next to nothing about landscaping. Did I get lucky? This thing is almost too good to be true? I usually don’t write these type of ‘reviews’
