Loving my new Rachio 3! Most Advanced settings now set to what I think is correct, at least for now.
Looking at the Daily Flex schedules, I have it set to finish before sunrise. I want to save as much water as possible, so that is great. However, I see the start times for each scheduled day is shortly after midnight even is a single zone it to run for only 20 minutes.
Why not have an option for the start time(s) to be calculated back from sunrise. Meaning, water as close to sunrise as possible, starting later rather than sooner?
We have serious issues with fungal diseases threatening St. Aug. turf here in Central TX. Most gardeners and landscapers recommend not watering at night so as to increase risk for fungal issues during the cooler nights. Watering just after midnight can leave the roots soaked for 6-7 hours.
I guess I can track the typical longest single days run time (~5.5 hrs atm) and set it to “Start After” late enough to finish before sunrise. However, that won’t help days with a single short run.
I’m sure you guys worked with the lawn pros when in algorithm development, but It would still be night have the option, to make each run start as late as possible AND still finish before sunrise.
