Ok - so I see the need for multiple programs when you are doing things like watering new turf, or want to water lawns at sunrise, but flowers at sunset, but what is the recommendation for a "basic" program?
If I have flowers in zone 1, lawn in zone 2 and citrus in zone 3 (I dont but it suits my understanding), can I just create a daily program, start at 6am program and rainmachine will correctly only water the flowers "typically" every two days, the lawn every other day and the citrus once per week? All from the one program?
I have "use adaptive frequency" enabled - is it recommended to also have Cycles and Soak (auto)?
(in the past we have had restrictions on which days watering is allowed, and which times - I can see the need to set the times and days to the program there)
Thank you for your question.
For now, there is no way to set different frequency per zones inside of one program.
That's why we support setting up as many program as you need.
For your scenarios, you have to create a program with its own frequency for each zone.
Thank you for your understanding, Jon
Yes, you were clear and you are also right - depending on each zone advanced settings you may have set, the watering programs are automatically calculated for each of them, BUT, the program will run for all zones on the frequency you'll set and that frequency is for the entire program.
Hope this helps, Jon
