Okay, set my Flex Daily schedule, it’s supposed to start for the first time tomorrow. Giving it more time to complete, I have it set to complete watering at 9 AM. My normal (previous) watering schedule would start at 5 AM. Well, my new Rachio schedule is going to start, EVERY DAY, at 11:56 at night! Why? I guess because IF it watered for the entire week on one day, which everyone including Rachio knows it won’t, it takes 10:03 hours to water. Including a 2 hour drip irrigation. Tomorrow, it will quit watering a little after 4 AM. Checking other days, it stops between 4 and 7 hours BEFORE my 9 AM deadline.
With as smart as this thing is, it isn’t possible for it to start based on the total run time IT KNOWS AHEAD OF TIME, and start at an appropriate time to end at 9? So instead of starting at about midnight, it would start at 5AM to 7AM, and still complete by 9 AM?
I think I saw something about this in another post, but assumed Rachio would at least use the total time it would water for all zones AT ONE TIME. I doubt it would /ever/ water the full time for the week in one day, at least during a summer season.
I’m already working on work-arounds, while at the same time wondering why I should have to.
