So I am still confused about how the systems calculates the AW for the next run. I have forecast correction turned on.
Forecast: .87 inches of rain
Weather Sensitivity: 85%
Forecast Correction: Enabled, using weather station (used Real Rainfall)
Actual Available Water (before simulated runs): 0 (has not rained in a week)
It did the calcs right and gave 10.54 mm of forecasted AW which seems correct for the expected rainfall amount.
Question: If it does not rain any, will the AW then be reset to the previous value or will it continue using this calculated value for the AW on the next simulation run? will the the rainfall be negative at the end of the day since it did not rain? When does the AW reset?
Question 2: Since the system was suppose to water, and did not water due to it thinking it would rain, when will that water that was "missed" be put back into the system to be put on the grass?
With being in Houston during the summer, the forecast is hit or miss with the sea breeze and random pop up showers. So I could mess with the sensitivity but then we might be over watering but guess that is just the way it is.
