Watering durations for each programmed zone can be set by:
- Custom duration: The user sets a desired watering duration for a typical summer day.
- Suggested duration: calculated from the properties of your zone (soil type, plant type, sun exposure, etc) for a typical summer day.
The RainMachine will then adjust these durations based on three choices: live weather, seasonal adjustments, or “do not adjust”. For example, hot days require more water, cool days require less, and on rainy days it may not water at all, achieving substantial water savings
We encourage you to experiment with the various settings to find a duration that works best with your setup, and keep an eye on how your plants respond.
