I have just installed an sprinkeler system with rachio 3 however not everything works I need the community help.
I have 2 zones for the main garden (50m2 / 538 ft2) where 5 rainbird 3500 series popup sprayers are installed (zone 1 = 2 popup sprayers, zone 2 = 3 popup sprayers).
Unfortunately zone 2 with 3 popupsprayers sometimes takes 50 seconds to pop-up and sometimes they don’t pop-up at all. On the other hand zone 1 with 2 popupsprayer seems to work fine.
The flow of the faucet is 23.5 LPM (6.2 GPM) and looking at the charts for 3500 series should be enough water flow for the sprinkelers using only 1 zone.
The person I hired already checked for leaks but couldn’t find any. Actually he was planning only to have in 1 zone for all 5 popupsprayers but then he saw it wasn’t possible (no mathematical explanation given) and added a second solenoid to have 2 zones. Still problem persists.
- What do you think is the problem,what can I do to fix this?
- Is possible to have only 1 solenoid / 1 zone for all 5 popupsprayers?
