I’m a lifelong resident of the Great Pacific Northwest. I’ve had inground sprinklers at my home for 19 years. I finally decided to get “smart” this past year. After much research, I decided that Rachio was the way to go. I purchased the Rachio 3 on a Black Friday deal on Amazon. Got the controlled hooked up just after Christmas. Looking forward to Spring, when I can begin to use it on a consistent basis.
