Flow Sensor - leak detected notice but no leak

    I have the same problem with a flow meter that pulses for each .1 gallon.

    It looks to me like the RainMachine starts counting pulses from the flow meter the instant it shuts off the last zone in a program.

    With a more sensitive flow meter like yours, you will detect a small amount of water flowing as the valve closes and pipes re-pressurize.  It would be ideal if there was a few second delay before it looked for a leak.

    Thank you for the reference. I agree 100% with the poster who recommended a user-defined gallon threshold for leak identification. I don't care about 5 or 10 gallons but I want to know when it's leaking hundreds.
