Could someone please enlighten me as to how the weather data you collect from whatever source is utilized to provide the ETo data. This data, if inaccurate, can have disastrous effects on the landscape when Using flex scheduling.
I am currently running a comparative test of multiple zones with exactly the same settings as another manufacture that i have been using several years now. The results have been that the weather data from that of multiple sources for the Iro have been consistently incorrect. My gage to this is quite unscientific but works, Green Grass with a hint of stress with competitor vs Brown Grass Iro. I have had the competitors controller installed for several seasons and I know my settings are correct because they have not been changed for 3 seasons and the grass remains healthy throughout the season. Once I started comparing the weather data everything became clear. No matter what weather data source I pick, Rachio is always different than what i know works and yes Both units are SWAT certified.
I have been able to manipulate particular settings of the zones in order to achieve a correct amount of duration and frequency that is needed not to have brown grass. Basically i created a workaround that worked with the constantly incorrect ETo.
