That will be good for how often it waters, but there is still no way to tell it “don’t water this zone more than X minutes at a time and be sure to wait Y hours before watering it again or everything beyond that will run off into the street.”
Once again my front yard is on a slope, and typically needs to be watered for 15-16 minutes per zone, but if you apply more than eight minutes at a time, or apply the second eight minutes less than three hours after the first eight minutes, the latter eight minutes of water will just run off.
There needs a way to be able to tell smart watering that about a zone, and simply telling Smart Watering that the soil is clay and is on a slope doesn’t seem to do it – perhaps I’m just missing it or need to tell it the slope of those zones is more than 5%.
