My firmware is 4.0.1115. I have a Touch HD-12 model.
In the Web App under Restrictions, I see an option for "Carry over water deficit to next schedule" - "Day and rain restrictions will carry skipped irrigation to next schedule if needed."
I don't see any details in the Knowledge Base about this setting. Could you please explain a bit more what this setting does? Does it mean if I set a zone to water 20 minutes every day, but I put in a restriction to NOT water on a Tuesday, does that mean on Wednesday it will now water 40 minutes? What does the "if needed" mean? How does it determine if the carry-over is "needed"?
Is the danger in NOT using this option that if, for example, my yard needs 20 minutes a day, I skip a Tuesday (0 minutes), then on Wednesday, only 20 minutes is programmed to run, that my yard actually needs more like 30 minutes (because it got 0 minutes on Tuesday), that I am now not giving the yard enough water?
Could the yard be overwatered if I turn this setting on?
And how is this different from the Minimum Rollover Threshold? Can I use the Minimum Rollover Threshold together with the Carry Over Water Deficit to Next Schedule option?
Just trying to better understand this setting.
