    Hi all

    I am looking for an option to have the tap timer switch on/off every 10 or 15 minutes during its watering time to allow water to soak in and not runoff sideways. Currently I do this by running 4x15min watering times over 2 hours within a single program.

    Does anyone know of such a function? Or a way to have more than 4 time slots within one program?

    Thanks

    Spread the love!

    Go to Zones, Smart Details, then set your slope. If you already have, try setting a slightly greater slope. Smart Watering function calculates if any cyclical soakage is required in the watering program, based on the parameters you’ve setup in this area. Only problem is, with now 5 faucet controllers, most of which are sloping garden beds, it takes a really long time to water my garden as it doesn’t make use of the ‘dead time’ between cycles, by starting another zone from another faucet device. Supposedly they’re working on this, but it’s been a couple years.
