In the zone settings, the app offers different types of watering, for example, regular, deep watering, boost, etc. One is labeled EPA. 


What are the differences between the settings and watering times/amounts for: regular, boost, and EPA?

Weird watering plan

Manuel Roca
Updated at 2019-10-12 11:34:00 UTC 
I don’t understand why smart watering is planning to water my 6 zone area in different ways if they have all the same type of soil, sprinkle head, size, and species. 

That give me not much confidence on the intelligence of the system. 

Any ideas? Do I have to reset all the system?

Fine-tuning smart watering for rotors

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2021-06-22 04:16:23 UTC 

I have a smart zone comprising rotor heads.  As I understand, rotor heads need to be run for longer times than other types of heads because they are only delivering water to one direction at a time (the current direction of the stream of water from the rotor).  Further, the amount of water delivered in a given time depends on how large of an arc the rotor passes through.  For example, if the rotor sweeps through only 180 degrees for 10 minutes, that ground gets 2x the water per unit area than if it runs through 360 degrees for the same 10 min.


So, it seems that, since the choice of rotor head does not include information about the arc it will travel through, there is no way for the smart watering algorithm to know how much water is being delivered per unit area, i.e. a zone with rotors going all 360 degrees is likely under-watering.


I believe this is happening on my lawn, and i would like to make a change in order to increase the time of watering for this zone.


What dials do I have at my disposal to make the smart watering algorithm water this zone for a longer period of time?

Watering Adjustment not working

Arthur
Updated at 2020-08-20 03:58:15 UTC 

Hi i have a watering adjustment on the whisperer set to kick in at 40%

Since it was turning on at random times immediately when it dropped below 40% I also added a general restriction from 10am to 8pm.

After I added the restriction the watering adjustment doesn't seem to work. It's past 8pm moisture is at 28% but the sprinklers did not turn on why?

2 different water sources

Carlos Oliveira
Updated at 2020-05-09 14:51:27 UTC 

Hi,


I have the netro connected to one water source.

Now I am going to install a vertical garden with very low flow and I want the source of water to be a different one from the main source for the garden.


Is there a way I can connect it as an independent solenoide valve that doesn't need to have the master turned on ?


Thank you,

Carlos

Battery not charging

Petar Nedyalkov
Updated at 2020-08-21 18:24:41 UTC 

Hi, 


My solar powered controller doesn’t charge its battery - not sure if it’s a battery problem - the controller is under direct sunlight for at least 6 hours every day.


I’ve set it to water for 1 hour every day so it’s a simple On/Off once a day.


Have other people had this issue?

Manual watering reset after app restart

Szabi Hant
Updated at 2021-10-23 04:46:29 UTC 

Hi there,

My problem is that I change the watering time to 5min manually for each zone, but the actual watering time is the previous 1min, even when the app shows the new 5min watering. Also after restarting the app it is always goes back to previous 1 min. 

It seems the app doesn't save the new settings. 

Thanks in advance!

Mode between and eco and normal

Sangjin Lee
Updated at 2019-10-17 03:41:11 UTC 

I am exploring different smart watering modes. The normal mode waters the lawn too long for me but the eco mode too little. It appears that the eco mode is exactly the same as normal but the watering time is half of normal.


In my case, I would like to set up a smart mode that waters 75% of the normal. How can I configure the smart mode to do that?
