Hi everyone! I’m planning on getting a Rachio for the HomeKit compatibility but have a quick question about my setup first. I have an irrigation well with manual valves currently. Planning on replacing the manual valves with automatic ones, running the wires back to the Rachio, connect it to a well pump relay, and should be in business.
My only uncertainty is that the well with a 2hp motor, there is plenty of pressure to drive multiple open valves in the current setup. I’ve read that the Rachio 3 has enough power for 3 solenoids, but the well pump relay would be one, and presumably with a strong well pump I would want to turn on the water hammer feature, which would take the 2nd? Should I be worried about running the well’s full pressure through one zone at a time? Or would I be safe to wire two valves together and skipping the water hammer feature?
