Configurable leak detection threshold

Gathering Feedback

    I agree as I also get daily false leak detection alerts right after normal watering.    My flow meter measures 0.1 of a gallon for each click, so I suspect RainMachine triggers the alerts when my valves take a few seconds to close normally.   It would also be great to add a user configurable delay after a zone stops before starting the leak counter.

    Yep, sure have and the RainMachine accurately records the correct number of gallons used.   That setup doesn't control the leak detection logic or the 2 clicks in 10 minute threshold mentioned above.

    I assume the leak detection was tested with flow meters that are 1 gallon per click.   I'm sure it works fine in that case since you have to leak 2 full gallons of water before being alerted.

    Maybe add this to the thread where they are gathering feedback for better use cases for the flow meter.  The config should be used at all times.  So this is something that they should fix for the spring 2020 release.
