Multiple sprinklers in one zone - and is there a Test System ?

Cormac Champion
Updated at 2020-09-19 13:48:55 UTC 

Hi there,


Can zones be setup with several sprinklers in the one zone ?  From what I can see from another question, is it correct that you setup the aproximate size of each zone ?  I have several zones with maybe 10 sprinklers in each zone, with sprinklers about 3m apart.


Also, is there any access to a test / simulation system that I can setup my location and see how well it would adapt to weather.  I am planning the installation for southern Spain


Thanks in advance

Potted plant on terrace

Andrea Zorgniotti
Updated at 2020-09-14 07:46:03 UTC 

Hi I Have a big terrace with many plants divided in 3 zone controlled by Netro. To use the smart watering and have an acceptable time/frequence for watering (6 min every 2.5 days) I have to set user and from 80% to 85% umidity. If I set frequent or extra water the estimated frequency is 4/5 days. Considering in summer my setting seems nor giving enough water to plants what kind of setting do you suggest to increase the frequency (change msq, kind of sprinkle or whatever).


Thanks in advance for answer

Sensor watering adjustment doesn't work - bug

Roman Stanek
Updated at 2020-09-04 04:49:34 UTC 

I installed two sensors today and added watering adjustment so that every time the humidity goes below 10% another 10 minutes of watering is added. Unfortunately, there is a bug and the watering time is triggered right away even though the faucet timer connects only every three hours. The additional watering time needs to be scheduled after the next timer sync and not right away. It's a clear bug.


Thanks

Hello,

I'm on vacation and my internet connection has been cut off. I had planned before on netro waterings for the week. Is that without an internet connection in my house, the waterings programmed before will still be done?

Best regards

Confused about schedule

Bowie Xu
Updated at 2020-08-04 18:52:19 UTC 

Hi 

I am a new user here and just installed the Netro in my house. The “Smart watering” schedule seems very odd to me.


As you can see there are 2 rounds for each zone and the time of zone 4 is about an hour in one round. Is this normal ?

Watering "off the books"

wwhitfill
Updated at 2020-08-02 23:26:54 UTC 

Right now the watering schedule the Netro program is using for my St. Augustine grass is killing my grass. I live in Dallas and Jully/August is brutal on lawns. If I water outside the schedule the program has established the schedule is changed. Is there anyway for me to water my with Netro and keep the smart watering schedule Netro has? Right now I by pass the Netro by manually engaging my water values, not using Netro. 

Thanks,

Will

Water turned off

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2020-07-31 01:08:39 UTC 

I had to turn off my water valve to my sprinkler system for a week (ending in a few days) and forgot to disable smart watering on my netro.  Netro thinks it did a complete watering last Saturday, and adjusted estimated soil moisture accordingly.  Netro isn't planning another watering for another 9-10 days.  However no watering last Saturday occurred.  


How best should I handle this?  Is there a way to delete past watering, which will lower soil estimated moisture, triggering a sooner watering than currently scheduled?  Or should I just do a manual long watering as soon as I can?

Smart scheduling problem with sensor watering adjustment configuration

Alfonso Olias Sanz
Updated at 2020-07-28 05:32:10 UTC 

I have an issue/conflict  with the watering adjustments for the sensors and the Smart Zone Sheduling

I have seen something weird. 



  • I Have set up the Watering Adjustment for sensors the following I describe o be sure about the problem
  • Moisture to Skip watering 50%
  • Moisture to Add watering 30%
  • Duration 5 minutes (only) -- it is a check
  • The Smart Zones are st up the following
  • Smart Zone - enabled
  • Mode - regular


The watering run today only 5 minutes, when the smart  schedule  defined by the system was above that. As you can see, tomorrow watering says different time runs per zone, but it will run a maximum of 5 minutes. This means that the sensor configuration overrides the Smart Zone. And it should not.

As far as I understand the Watering adjustemt is to add EXTRA watering when needed based on the moisture level. Attached picture


Prior to this setup I had the Duration for Watering Adjustment for 15  and 10 minutes, and you can see in the past days runs, that always run for 15 -10 minutes depending the zone/sensor. - Attached picture

In previous weeks, it was working fine and adding extra watering when need it to keep the moisture levels.

Any idea?


I DID THE CHANGES PROPOSED BY NETRO  and it is not working

Take a look the screen shots



Zones 3,4,5 it is below the 30% trigger

I'm not understanding how "estimated frequency and duration" works...

Izio Sem
Updated at 2020-07-18 07:24:18 UTC 

Ciao.

Just installed Netro Sprite.

I enjoyed to set up the zones with advanced Smart watering, but I'm not confident with what is reported in "estimated frequency and duration". The frequency showed in the setting page seems too long (e.g. every 6 days)... but, if I see what is scheduled in the calendar it seems much closer to my expectation (e.g. every 2 days).   How daoes it work??


Thanks

Does Netro whisperer underestimate moisture?

Rick Agrawal
Updated at 2020-07-16 19:12:17 UTC 
I added a whisperer to one of our zones. Recently the moisture content was between 25-30%. We are having a hot summer with many days with 110 degrees. I believed it and watered for good 15-20 minutes. It turned out despite all those water the soil moisture went up to 45-50%. I went and checked again, the soil looks pretty good and appeared moist. 

Just curious if the whisperer tends to underestimate moisture?

Question about smart watering durations

sw238
Updated at 2020-07-05 15:42:38 UTC 

Hey, I'm a techie and I have a question about your "smart watering". What is the feedback loop that you use?


My zones are vastly different -- some have very small spray heads, and some have very large rotors that pump out a lot of water. At first glance, I cannot see any way to (a) indicate how much water is delivered per zone or (b) indicate how moist the soil actually is.


Assuming that I have not missed anything, I have a few suggestions:

  1. Provide a mechanism for indicating the water deliver rate for each zone
  2. Provide a mechanism for manually imputing the actual, measured moisture of the soil
  3. Provide a "hint" mechanism for each gone (e.g. "This zone is too dry" / "this zone is too wet") which would in tyrn influence the smart watering.
