Soil Types

Tim Foster
Updated at 2019-12-14 13:28:44 UTC 

The app asks me to define my soil type and gives me a small list to choose from. I'm no gardening expert by any means and so I'm not really sure I've got this right. I selected the most draining type based on nothing more that guesswork really. We're in Yucatán, México so the entire area is limestone rock, but this website (https://sites.google.com/site/soilsoftheyucatanpeninsula/soil-types) gives more detail about the soil types in Yucatán. All this has done though is confuse me more. 


Is there any reliable way that I can determine my soil type in Netro? The website says it's likely to be one (or a combination) of Gleysols, Histosols, Vertisols, Solonchaks, Leptosols, and Cambisols

Watering

Tim Foster
Updated at 2019-12-14 13:23:21 UTC 

I have my first period of rain coming up, so the smart schedule isn't planning on watering until Christmas Eve. Since getting the sensors working properly I've been very happy with the smart watering, but the rain predictions here tend to be a bit sketchy. As my system is saying it won't water because there is rain expected, does it automatically adjust itself and water if the predicted rain doesn't arrive?


Also, I have it set to not water if expected rain is 5mm. What is the difference in this context between expectation and forecast?

Put Sprite in "paused" mode in winter

Netro Support

Put Sprite in "paused" mode in winter 


To put Sprite in "paused" mode in winter, you will have winterize your system. First you will have to blow out the sprinkler. You can look at this video to find some useful information. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3YRbJYmvgA&t=99s


This video mentioned that you will have to turn on the sprinkler, so you can use the instant manual run feature in the home page to manually start watering for each zone to make sure all the water is out of system.


Then you should put Sprite in "paused" mode just in case some one (for example the kids) accidentally starts a manually run from the app. To put Sprite in "paused" mode, you can go to Settings->Controller->Enabled.

Neither whisperer is now working

I have two whisperers, one in zone 2 at the front and one in zone 4 at the back. We're in Mexico so it's ridiculously hot and sunny all the time. The unit at the back faces north west. The unit at the front faces north. Both units are now dead. Neither will reset or power up.

I would love to see a leak detector we could install onto the water lines that could communicate the amount of water used and detect leaks. Like the one Rachio offers.

How to replace an old controller with more than 12 zones

Netro Inc
Updated at 2019-11-06 09:20:19 UTC 

If your old controller has more than 12 zones, you will need to have 2 Netro controllers to replace it. Please follow the diagram below to safely wire the 2 controllers:



Now you can use the 2 C slots for the common wires and the 2 sets of 1-12 slots for the zone wires. If you do not have a master valve or pump, just ignore the orange wires.


IMPORTANT: the blue wire has to be connected to the left 24VAC on both controllers and the yellow wire has to be connected to the right 24VAC on both controllers.


Please contact us if you need the wire connectors shown in the picture.

What about blowout?

New system owner. When having fall blowout performed, I found I needed to be present to run each zone. I didn’t find a way to provide access to the technician. Other systems on the market provide this function. 

Why doesn’t this one?

Mode between and eco and normal

Sangjin Lee
Updated at 2019-10-17 03:41:11 UTC 

I am exploring different smart watering modes. The normal mode waters the lawn too long for me but the eco mode too little. It appears that the eco mode is exactly the same as normal but the watering time is half of normal.


In my case, I would like to set up a smart mode that waters 75% of the normal. How can I configure the smart mode to do that?
