    Hi, Jim
    The Pause functionality if is that what you are asking is not yet available. It is currently in beta mode.
    But if you mean that you want to manually stop the program (all zones) and then manually start the program again, then yes, you can do that. Tap on the "Stop All" button and then simply tap on the "Start" button in front of the program name from the program list.

    Hope this helps, Jim
    Thank you,

    Under Settings there is a Snooze selection that might just do the job.

    Hi, Jim
    Yes, or you can use the Watering Restrictions option to restrict scheduled program to run on the coming days.

    Also, the "Stop All" button should be placed on the upper top bar under the Zones (Water Now) screen.

    Hope this helps.
    Thank you, Jim

    If so , your app is clearly different than mine.  Version 4.5.109.

    Hi, Jim
    "Stop All" button will show up on the Zones screen when a zone or a program is currently running.

    Thank you,

    Not a very convenient way to approach this problem. The program starts around 2:00 am and runs for 30 minutes for each zone.

    This was set by the installer.

    It's surprising that you don't have a pause button on the main program screen. It has the start (>) button which is great but am I the only person who has this system that wants to pause the sprinklers for an undetermined amount of time?

    Hi, Jim
    As we said, you can use the SNOOZE option for the future starting activities.
    You will not be awake at 2:00 AM to pause it, right? So, if you don't want your 2:00 AM program to start, snooze the RainMachine for 24 hours, or 12 hours depending on how long till 2:00 AM you got and how long the program will run.

    The Pause functionality will be available, right now it is currently in Beta version of the iOS app and RainMachine firmware.

    Thank you for your understanding, Jim

    Hi, Jim
    Did you managed to use the RainMachine iOS app on your iPad to Snooze your system?

    Thank you,

    Not yet.

    I did change the start watering time. It was pretty easy.
