So in reference to Is there a way to manually advance to the next station? of how to advance to the next zone during closing of the system, I think there would be a great feature for a ‘System Maintenance’ area added to the slide in left menu under Custom Nozzles, Help, etc.
If you could add the ‘System Maintenance’ and this screen shows all 8 (or 16) zones in a tile view. All zones should show on the same screen with no scrolling required.
- Click on a zone and it starts watering. (Zone becomes highlighted so you know it’s selected/running)
- Click another zone and it switches to that zone. (Highlights new zone and unhighlights the first zone)
- Click the same (highlighted zone) and it turns off the zone.
- Leave the maintenance area and if a zone is running it turns off.
Not only does this help in the closing of a system but also for replacing nozzles, testing, etc. No timing, advancing, etc. built in to this area. It’s a straight on/off of each selected zone.
When I’m shutting down my system, I like to loop through all the zones a few times so that they have time to cool off the lines between blowing and I can go back to the zones that seem to have more water remaining in them. This would be a much easier way to run through that process.
Hopefully this could be something you could sprint through quickly for the end of this watering season.
Thanks for your hard work and consideration.
