Hi I am working on optimizing my watering schedules. My goal is overall plant health and if i can get water saving then great. Note I had read through a few of the posts and I identified a key item is defining custom nozzles an ensuring my setting are accurate. I understand soil type and root depth are also important parameters.
I have added all the nozzle types and their associated flow rate into the ios mobile app. I am not trying to associate the various nozzles with each zone. What I am finding is that only 1 nozzle can be associated with each zone. Is that by default? am I correct in assuming i should select the nozzle with highest flow rate. My lawn does not just have 1 nozzle type. there various iterations of nozzle for example 15 full, 5 Half and 15 quarter that have their respective flow rates. Please advise
I have 2 type of areas. Lawn and planter area.
In the planter zone I have the following: 2 Bubbler nozzle types and here are the details of the 3 areas that are controlled by single solenoid.
area 1: 5x7 flat
area 2:5x10 steep slope
area 3: 7x 15 steep slope
here is the vegetation I have: carpet rose, pumpkim pie african daisy, sweet memories purple sky flower, plumeria, butterfly pea shrub
nozzles: bubblers rainbird MPR 5Q and 5H
soil: Loamy sand
28x56 a mix of cold weather grasses , slight slope
Nozzle types: Raibird MPR 15fFull, 15Q, 15h, 12F,H, 12Q.
soil: Loamy Sand
Any help in optimizing my setting is appreciated. I am in San Diego about 10-15 miles inland.
