Winterizing and WFM

I just had my sprinkler guy out for blowing out the lines to winterize. As we ran the zones with air I received a Low-Flow Detected email and app notification for each zone. I also found it a little harder than expected to run the zones for a manual 2 minute then 1 minute cycle each. It seems to me that Rachio could add a Winterizing mode that lets you easily cycle through the zones and mutes any WFM related warnings.

I mean, I am winterizing, I know that there is no water flowing while the zone is running! Duh, Rachio!

Good call out @kc_cw! Standby mode should help this too :slight_smile:

I just watched the video on this page:

That suggested switching to Standby mode first, then in Standby use the manual mode. Is that my problem? I didn’t switch to standby until the end. If I was in standby during the manual zone cycles, would it be smarted and not give me the low flow notices and emails?

Correct! That should have kept those notifications from coming through.
