I just received a Mini-8, set it up, updated the firmware, configured my zones, and left it run for a few days.
It is currently winter here so no watering is being done due to restrictions.
I am concerned that the watering is going to be far too much.
With my old timer, I watered each zone every other day for 20 minutes each. I thought that was excessive at times. The yard generally was in good health, looked green, got compliments.
With a 'Every 3 days' schedule, and the various 'automatic' option enabled on the Mini-8, the total watering time currently shows 7hrs 52min 48sec
My zones are described accurately. Shall I just wait for watering season to arrive and see what actually happens? Make some adjustment before hand?
