@miketeel I think there might be a little confusion. 0% is actually not fully depleted, that would be a permanent wilting point. On the chart 0% means you hit the bottom of your managed allowed depletion which is just 50%.
MAD is the maximum amount of Plant Available Water (PAW) allowed to be removed from the soil before irrigation refill occurs.
For most landscape purposes, 50% MAD represents a reasonable overall value.
For sensitive, shallow rooted plants, or heavy compacted soils, a smaller depletion should be considered (30-50% MAD). For stress-tolerant plants, deep root zones or lighter soils, a larger depletion can be used (50-70% MAD)
This chart shows that before you hit 0% of your MAD we automatically irrigate.
I did notice one thing:
- You have quiet a few controllers all running flex daily schedules. IMHO I’d try to get one of these dialed in with appropriate settings, then if happy apply to other controllers. I know its hard enough trying to get one controller, even one zone working properly if things aren’t just “working”
Hope this helps.
