I have a well for all my water needs. As such, it's very important that I'm aware of flow rates during irrigation. I have a flow sensor installed and connected into my new Pro-16, it's working, but not providing the needed info I was expecting. To get flow rates, I have to navigate thru the menu on the Pro-16 directly, and then use a stop watch and do some math to get GPMs. This seems like an easy calculation that could be done and displayed on the Pro-16 and in the App. There are a few flow related items that would be very helpful and add value:
1) real-time view of current flow rate in GPM: This doesn't need to be millisecond resolution, maybe a 5 to 10 second running average displayed on the iOS App when remote and locally connected. When, locally connected, the update rates could be much quicker.
2) ability to use flow sensor to track per zone watering volumes, instead of manually inputting the GPM numbers/zone.
3) Alerting/Notifications if flow rates exceed defined values. if an irrigation head, or pipe bursts, this would be very valuable! this will require #1
