So saturation skip goes by the moisture level in the soil. I know on flex daily it shows the moisture levels, I can’t see the moisture level in fixed, so I assume Rachio just guesses? In the advanced mode on my zones in fixed there is an allowed depletion to adjust to our down from the factory set 50%.
So I assume if Rachio has watered so much in the last week and the temperatures hasn’t been extremely high, then Rachio assumes the water hasn’t evaporated or dried out and enables saturation skip based on the 50% depletion level, and how much water it watered given the amount of time it watered. Do I understand this correctly?
We do track these values, although more behind the scenes.
That is correct, its like a somewhat synthetic approach to flex daily concepts applied to other schedule types. If you feel it is too aggressive or not working properly feel free to disable that certain type of skip.
