    Your understanding is correct. Wouldn't defining a custom sprinkler head type solve your issue ? I'm trying to better understand how you would wish to configure it so maybe we can add this in the future.

    About Field Capacity this could be indeed wasteful but Field Capacity is implemented with the double amount in algorithm. If you have 1 inch Field Capacity, algorithm has from -1 to 0 (deficit) and from 0 to 1 available water. Beside this there is a small percentage that we allow over the maximum field capacity before the run off occurs (ie water that is allowed to stay above soil before runoff depending on slope is considered)
