Hi Ken,

To increase watering account, you can choose boost mode through settings->zones->specific zone number->smart zone-enabled->Mode. You can choose "customized" mode to adjust watering by providing the preferred moisture level and flow rate of your sprinklers. 

Also, you can create your own programs if you think the smart watering is not enough.

Dear Ken, 

These numbers are computed base on your configuration, e.g. mode, plant type, soil type, sprinkler type, and are  not open to public. Roughly speaking, the low/high are around 60%-90%, which is also a good starting point if you want to use customized mode. The flow rate is based on sprinkler type, a good estimation is : 

mister: 2.0inch/hour

fixed spray head: 1.5inch/hour

bubbler: 1.0inch/hour

rotor head: 1.0inch/hour

rotary nozzle: 0.7inch/hour

rotary emiter: 0.5inch/hour
