I have a Rainmachine 8 that has been working well. It decrease the amount of watering based on weather, etc. About a 6 months ago I made some changes to my settings and since then it doesn't decrease the amount watering no matter if there has been lots of rain. I made sure the setting of weather based watering was on for each program. I had to set rain restrictions so it doesn't turn on when there has been moderate rain. This was fine for a few months but I decide I would do a factory reset to see if I could get weather based programs again. After the reset, it seemed like everything was working again. I would check watering history and it shows watering cut down by 30-50% on days it was supposed to rain. However, after a few weeks, i realize my driveway wasn't wet in the mornings. So i manually turn on a zone and it the app shows watering has started and on the console, the icon blinks, but no water is coming out.
I read on another post to check with voltmeter on common wire and each zones' wire. Can you elaborate on this? Not sure why this would happen after a factory reset.
