Translating old watering schedule to Rachio

I am very frustrated with my Rachio controller. I really wanted to like the idea. But it is not taking my initial input very well. My main concern is my lawn. It is on a separate zone (both before Rachio and now with it)
My watering in summer (California Bay Area) with rotating spray nozzles low flow, was 3 days a week, 45 minutes each time. (Heat waves meant I ran extra sessions). I put that schedule in for this zone, and Rachio is about killing my lawn. It has never run that schedule.

So please help me understand what I need to do to get this to be my normal schedule. Thank you so much to all you volunteers that help the rest of us.


What kind of schedule did you set up? Sounds like a fixed schedule is all you need, and should be very straight forward.

Are you getting any weather skip notifications (wind, rain, etc)?

Did you inadvertantly set and “END DATE” for the schedule?

Is the schedule enabled?
