Hi, I set up a schedule on my rachio 3 under the flex daily setting with 7 zones and a run time of 10-15 mins per zone starting at 4 Am with smart cycle activated and weather intelligence on, no rain is scheduled for the next 2 days. I woke up today at 7:30 am and saw only one of my zones had run. I’m not sure what the reason for this is, all my zones work and I did a quick run yesterday. Any ideas?
When I initially set up the schedule Rachio recommended a run time of about 4 hours with some zones recommended to run as long as 58 mins which did not make sense as with my old none smart controller a 10-15 min run time had been more than adequate per zone. Is the run time that you set under the schedule a daily or weekly/monthly run time? Could this be why only one zone turned on?
Another thing I noticed when I go into my zones is that on most zones its saying next scheduled run of between August 12 and 16th while we are at August 5th today with no rain scheduled. Trying to understand the logic the system is using. Is it because I did a quick run recently to test each zone? Is it somehow factoring in the quick runs into the schedule?
UPDATE: The only work around I was able to find when fiddling with the app is to “empty fill” each zone that was showing a next run day of weeks away. By doing this the next run time shows 4 Am again. This seems counterintuitive if I have to do this every time. Ideas?
