I am still running the Rachio 3 in simulation mode. I have two zones for plants on Flex Daily, and one zone for lawn on Flex monthly. Reason for putting the lawn on flex monthly is because when also on flex daily, it appears it synchronizes the watering date with the plant zone, instead of giving it its own dates.
The Lawn flex monthly schedule is set to do rain skip with the default .125”, the weather station is my own (on Weather underground), yet I see a strange situation.
We had 0.7” rain on Dec 29th, and the flex monthly adjusted the schedule to water the lawn on January 19th. Good so far
We had another 0.1” of rain on January 9th, no change. Still good.
Then yesterday and today (Jan 15 -16) we have had 0.75” of rain (reported by the weather station), yet the schedule for the lawn still plans to water the 19th…
I know the Rachio is getting the rain info, because the plant zone on flex daily shows the replenishing of the moisture on 15-16 and went back up to 110% moisture.
So it seems to imply that Flex monthly rain skip is not using the precipitation to trigger a skip. If so what does it actually use?
Note: Many people seem to have reported similar issues, and I have not seen any official answer from Rachio. Rachio, can you clarify what is used to trigger a flex monthly rain skip?
