    Hello, i would like to insert a pause time between zones during smart watering or manual program. My issue is that if every each zone is running immediatly after the previous, my water reservoir tanks empty to quick, resulting the no water for at leasr half of the zones(12 in total). The tanks are supplied from a well via a dedicated pump. If i could have a 7 min pause between zones I could solve this.

    Thanks for your post ORISOMIO! Right now there isn’t a way to have a pause in between zones. We will pass this feedback on for a future update of the app!

    Seems like there are ways around this. You could program 1-4 as A, 5-8 as B, putting the pause between a & b, etc. Or you can put multiple run times in A, so rather than running 1 -12 for 30 min/station, starting midnight, run 1-12 for 10 min starting midnight, 1-12 10 min starting 3am and 1-12 10 min starting 6am.

    Thank you for your answer, but I have already utilized all 3 program slots and their max start times for every each. I also have in use all 12 zones, so there is no extra option to solve my issue, like entering a “dummy” zone in programs.
    I thought it would be easy, since it is an issue of software coding, to add either extra program slots ( why limited to 3 ?) or/ and extra start times in programs (only 4 available).
    So my only option is to wait the next software upgrade!
