Hi Bob,

 

You can go to Settings->Programs to edit it.


To delete a schedule on a certain day, you can go to the schedule page, select the date, tap the programs and there will pop up a window for you to skip the schedules.

 

Thanks,

Error in watering ?

Updated at 2022-08-30 02:19:50 UTC

Hi Davide,


The app is correct and we will fix the error for the web version in the next release.

We checked from our server side and 5 waterings were OK. When Netro finishes running a watering schedule, it will send a confirmation to the cloud server. In this way, the could server knows whether the schedules are correctly executed or not.

The exclamation mark means the cloud server did not receive the confirmation from the device. In your case, the schedules afterwards are all correctly run and confirmed so don't worry about it. It could just be a temporary network issues. But if that happens a lot please check the WiFi signal strength. If you use a WiFi extender, please make sure it is connected to the main router stably.


Thanks,

Hi Stephen,


You can try loamy sand. If the soil is sticky, you could also try silty clay.

Though the chances of damage is very low, we suggest testing all the solenoids with an amp meter.

Need Sprite to water less often

Updated at 2022-08-25 06:46:10 UTC

Dear customer,


EPA standard encourage longer water time and less water frequency, which will help growth of the roots. It will also break long water time to several small slots to prevent water runoff. If you think the smart schedules water too much , you can either change to different smart zone mode (ECO), or you can set up your own programs and set up your smart zone in basic level. Please check this article for more info. https://netrohome.com/forum/posts/111

How do I program to give my plants 50 gallons of water every other day?

Logo
Wency Pan
Updated at 2022-08-22 03:00:53 UTC

Hi Ethan, 


Netro uses the area and depth flow rate(inch/hour) to calculate the water usage and the equation we use is 

Area(inch^2) x depth flow rate (inch/hour) x time (hour) = water usage(inch^3) 

To have 50 gallons every other day for your zone, you will first need to calculate the watering duration according to the equation and then adjust smart watering or create your own programs. 

 You can choose boost mode to increase the watering amount. You can also choose "customized" mode to adjust watering by providing the preferred moisture level and flow rate of your sprinklers. (you will see the estimated water time after adjusting the percentage) 


Thanks, 

Wency
