I have an Orbit Bhyve that I hate. I was hoping for a solution where the controller can do smart watering etc but have issues with it. We can only water on even days which is fine, but only between 6am to 10am and 6pm to 10pm. The Orbit lets me set a time restriction but only one, such as no watering between 9am to 5pm meaning it comes on all the time like all night or during the day. Just curious how Rachio works in this regard.
The main challenge I find is with 16 zones and a large lawn, it usually wants to water 20-30 minutes per zone, meaning it’s too long for the 4 hour window we can water during and instead is on for 6+ hours.
