I have had the Rachio installed with default settings for three weeks and really like it. My wife, saw our water usage for the last three weeks and didn’t share my enthusiasm.
This morning we measured each zone, calculated the GPM using the water meter and set custom nozzles.
We have a few zone that overlap, with some sprayers around the perimeter and rotors to get everything including where the sprayers hit. So we dialed back the “Watering Duration” on the sprayers in those zones. The “Edit Flex Schedule” showed 186 minutes. She could live with that.
All was good until this evening when I received the notice that Rachio would water at 6:00 for 204 minutes. How does that happen? What am I missing here.
