Smart watering

Hi Alisa,



We checked your account and it looks like the restriction needs to be updated. To water only on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, there are two restrictions needed:

1. No watering on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. That is for the whole day. So a restriction needs to be created for that with time frame set to "all day". I think that is what is missing here.

2. No watering on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday between 6 a.m. and 6p.m.


Please let us know if it works.


Thanks,

Metro Sprinkoer states it's running but it's not

Hi Steve,


Please check the wires. Are they loose or disconnected from the slots? Please also check the common wires and the master valve if you have one. If you believe the wires are correctly installed,  please check if there is a main valve/faucet that is turned off manually. 

To test if the controller is working properly, use a multimeter (AC voltage mode) to test the voltage between the common wire and the zone wire when the zone is active. Normally the voltage should be between 24V and 28V.

You might also want to check whether there are shorted zones or open zones. You just need to use a multimeter to measure the resistance between the common wire and each zone (remove the wires from the slots before testing the resistance). The normal reading would be 20-60 Ohms. If the reading is less than 10 Ohms then you might have a shorted circuit in the solenoid and if it is larger than 80 Ohms you might have an open circuit. 


Please let us know if it works.

Yellow triangle error

Updated at 2021-10-07 04:39:40 UTC
Dear Customer,

The "yellow triangle" does not necessary mean the schedules are not executed. All the schedules are pre-downloaded to the local unit, and when the schedules start and finish to be executed, the local unit will send signal to the cloud. The "yellow triangle" only means the cloud did not recieve the signal from the local unit, which may be caused by the temporary internet interrupt.

Please do a test to use the instant manual water button (the blue play button) on the home page to instantly water your zones, see if all your zones can start without issue.  If the instant manual water button work without issue, you do not need to worry about the yellow triangle.

Thanks

Issue with Smart Watering

Logo

Updated at 2021-10-07 04:37:31 UTC

Hi David,


Your zone 3 watered several times per day and it is smart watering. Some zones are watered multiple times a day, you probably selected clay, clay loam or loam as the soil type which accepts water slowly, often as little as 1/4 inch per hour and that is why we break the watering into many pieces to avoid water runoff.


 We found your smart watering is advanced and in this level, Netro smart watering will add smart zone schedules for you if Netro think the watering is not enough. 


If you do not want smart zone schedule to override your own programmed schedule, you can set up the Smart Zone level from Advanced to Basic, which only skip rainning days for your programmed schedule. ( Settings->Zones->Smart Zone)

Thanks,

Lots of questions!

Hi Thomas, 


You can find some useful information when selecting the soil type from this article:https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=179 


The slope does not need to be particularly accurate bacause the slope mainly affects the maximum watering time. The larger the slope, the shorter the watering time, and itNetro will break watering into several times. 


Dry spots is determined by the springler system. If there are many dry spots, you can choose the frequent watering mode through settings->zones->specific zone number->smart zone-enabled->Mode. 


Thanks,
