    I believe it's the available water in soil. Could you look at Field Capacity graph on that zone, using Web interface ? Also Web interface should also tell you the reason this zone didn't start in Settings > Water log.

    Also a screenshot of zone settings from Web interface would be good for further debugging. I'm mentioning Web interface since it has much more space to show detailed information.

    Hi Nicholas - thanks for the quick response.  It doesn't look like it is due to the available water in the soil (screenshot below).  I logged in to the Web interface and went to Settings ->Watering History but don't see any details (screenshot below).  Am I looking in the right place?  Am also including a screenshot of Zone settings.

    Nicholas - I misread the grph.  I believe it is due to available water in the soil per the graph.  Correct?

    Yes, you are correct you still have a little water in soil left. As for the missing reason on water log, do you have by chance "Adaptive Frequency" set in program ? There is a bug that we fixed in current beta that prevent showing this flag on interfaces.

    P.S. If you feel that available water is not correct on your zone you can lower the field capacity (using the +/- buttons on zone settings). But even if soil surface looks dry it still might hold water at plant root depth.

    I am having trouble finding the available water graph.  It is not in my Watering History on web login.

    What are the exact steps to navigate there?

    With Web UI click on a zone name and next to the field capacity number there is a "Show Graphs" button.
