System replaced. If I knew that the holes on the bottom I had to knock out myself, I would never have bought the prior.
System paired to phone, connected to wifi, setup my watering schedule…(full time until yard bounces back). Manual is watering longer than a minute, as it is running as I type. Gotta read more into the smart watering…for now I have schedule only until I get my yard looking the way it did before.
Made sure that Home Depot marked prior unit as defective so it won’t go on the shelf again.
