I noticed when we were forecasted to get 2 inches of rain, the system still wanted to water the next day. Found that odd so did some digging and found out it seems the logic is backwards for this setting. unless i am understanding it wrong.
Default Value: 80%
Lower Value: 10%
If i'm understanding this right, the manual says the lower the value, the more water your system will use. Therefore when i say 80% of the forecasted value about 1.5 inches will be put down on the grass give or take the other factors. Therefore it should be in a water surplus mode the day after but it is not. When i put it down to 10% or (0.2 inches of rain taking into account) it shows its in a water surplus mode therefore holding excess water.
This logic/results of the logic seems backwards. Any help further explaining this??
Does having forecast correction on negate the NOAA values, so maybe that is why? if that is the case then it probably is right since it just started raining now.
