Open Circuit Master Valve

Matt Ward
Updated at 2024-04-08 23:44:05 UTC 

Hello,


My system is not working. When I run a valve test, it shows all valves are normal but the master valve has an open circuit error. I have checked all the wires and there is not voltage at the wires at the valve itself. I used a volt meter at the Netro controller and there is no voltage coming out of the controller for the master valve. Any suggestions? 


Thanks, 

Matt

weather scheduling

rafal72
Updated at 2024-04-02 21:10:48 UTC 

Hi, Weather condition scheduling never worked and I've been using then Netro product for many years now. Currently both forecast & expectation are set at 0.1 threshold with skip (previous day, rainy day and next day). Weather station is set to NetroWeather and main app page is fairly accurate. Just today, it rained for most of the day and NetroWeather showed correctly "100% rain". Sadly, schedule program started anyway even though it was raining. I have changed weather provider, thresholds and nothing changes. This is very annoying to waste water, and I am looking for any tips how to mitigate this issue.


Cheers

Potted Pkants

John Kollehner
Updated at 2024-03-21 20:24:24 UTC 

Wency,


I recently added a drip irrigation system to my potted plants.  I do not have a dedicated zone for these plants, but instead tied the drip lines to a sprinkler head watering part of my lawn.   This zone uses the smart zone feature and works well.   The potted plants are under my roof and never see rain.    If I add a program for this zone with a daily frequency and 1 minute duration, will it still activate if raining?   I want both the smart zone to work as well as the program to work, but always needing the daily, albeit short program to run independent of rainfall.


Am I asking too much?   Otherwise, I must add another zone / valve to my system.


Thanks in advance for your advice.

Manual Operation

Mario Hardy
Updated at 2024-03-21 12:47:06 UTC 
My sprinklers decided to schedule a 45 min watering on its own. 

Only noriced it was on when there was onlt one minute left.

Now rhe manual operarion is somehow set at 45min and even if I chanfe it to one minute it goes back to 45. I worry it will go off in the middle of the night at unschedule time. 

Water is precious where i live. We havent had any rain since November. 

How can I stop the app to set schedule on its own for crazy amount of time?

Starting new garden from scratch

Cori
Updated at 2024-03-06 03:16:19 UTC 

Hello!

Everything is setup to sow our 170m2 of grass this weekend. 

All local gardeners told me to irriigate the planted seeds 5min during the morning and 5min during the night, everyday, however the Netro smart program sets up a weird combination of 10min at 6am then 10 min at 6:40am, and then also for instance 2 days off (each phase, we have 3 for the grass), and this is choosing 'new plant' option.

  Should we leave the Netro smart program or Should we choose our own one???

Thanks!!

Hi I am going to install a sprite controller at a property before wifi is installed. 

Can I set up programs on the controller using hotspot from my phone? So it can then use the irrigation schedule in offline mode until I can connect to wifi. 


Thanks

Sprite vs Spark - Backup and Faulty Valve Detection

Keith Chambers
Updated at 2024-02-11 09:30:43 UTC 
Topic: General

Very happy Sprite user for a year or so - but at this location I have a limitation I need to resolve... and thinking upgrading to Spark - will it resolve the issue ????


So I have installed the Sprite in a rental property - wanting to ensure that the tennents actually look after the garden and look after the place - and one of those things I have done is put in automated sprinklers and drippers to gardens to esnure that the garden gets watered and the grass and plants dont die in the harsh australian climate...


But what I found with a set of tennents is that they did not bother getting or setting up a wifi network. So the sprite had nothing to connect to and hence ran no programs - no connectivity / no watering....


So the Spark has a backup program apparantly.... I assume this means the Spark would have memory and know a schedule of sorts... Of course without connectivity there is no checking on rain schedules etc... Thats fine...  But does it mean if I set up a program to water the lawn for 30 minutes every second day while it had internet connectivity.. If the internet disapears will that mean the program will continue to drive the solonoids at appropriate time and hence carry on watering the garden.


What is the limitation - of cpurse internet features would not be available - is it only manual schedules that would operate - just on time schedules - would it run only for a week or could it run indefinately - or even just a year - until the internet returned...


What is the backup - what is the limitations - how does it work - what are the features !


Similarly how does the faulty valve detection work... Is it just a measure of resistance or what how does this feature work...  If the spark had the capability of measuring water flow (like some controllers do) - then it would be a great feature in measuring the volume of water consumed and of course this would also be an easy way of measuring valve detection... Flow with valve closed = leak somewhere and No flow with valve open = blockage or solonoid issue..... But that is not the feature - so trying to understand functionally and technically what the valve detection is....


Thanks
