Hi all - I just finished reading a number of entries on the issue I am seeing the latest one here Watering not being logged - kind of. I just changed one of my zones to a flexible daily schedule and what I don’t understand is why the watering for it is not logged. And since it is never logged the water levels are never changing in the graphs. I have a couple other zones on set schedules which work fine.
Here are the settings for my flexible schedule zone. It is a simple drip setup for my raised vegetable beds. I have allowed depletion at 30% because I have a mix of deep rooted tomatoes as well as short rooted onions, etc.
And here are the settings for the Flexible Schedule
According to the calendar the next time the zone watering will run is April 12th. On this Friday (4/7) and Today (4/10) the zone ran. So fine, the zone ran a couple times because it thought it needed to - I am in San Diego in direct sun with no rain in sight.
But what I don’t get is the Moisture Level chart.
Each of these two waterings have not been added to the chart nor any watering history in Rachio. The chart indicates I am at a 22% moisture level and that no watering has happened the last few days. Nothing could be further from the truth. If Flexible Daily Schedule is watering the zone shouldn’t it show in the moisture levels and change the current capacity? At this rate when the zone runs per the calendar on the 13th isn’t the zone going to get blasted with water again since my moisture level is showing that it is very low?
My wife said that maybe it is just the dew from the morning causing the water in the zone. To prove she was wrong I put a drip catch under an emitter Saturday. Sure enough, it is full this morning. The zone is definitely watering and it is definitely not showing up in any watering history or moisture level chart.
So…what am I missing here? I am worried about the 13th (3 days away) and the zone trying to completely refill the water level. Thanks all!
