Mulch impact on duration

John Wright
Updated at 2022-09-13 12:58:29 UTC 

My flower gardens have several inches of wood chip mulch covering the soil.  After a season of "Smart Watering" my beds are dry and the perennial plants are stressed.

Does mulch absorb irrigation water intended for the plants?  Is the presence of mulch a factor affecting the duration of an irrigation cycle?

Watering during a restriction

Valeria Dp
Updated at 2022-09-20 20:26:21 UTC 

Hi!

Tonight at 2.30 my netro start to watering. I had to stop it starting a manual program and stop it because in the app there was no watering sign.

Then I put a restriction for 3 days and around noon netro starts to watering again. There was a lost wifi signal for a minute cause by a voltage drop. 

Is it normal?


Thank you

Irrigation program,

Rosario Russo
Updated at 2022-09-27 10:58:58 UTC 
Hello, yesterday I mounted the control unit with an electrician, the connections are fine, we tried several times the manual function but it did not work, I am trying in various ways to operate the control unit, after several hours I pressed reset and I managed to start the manual program, now it works but I noticed that it does not start if there is a daily program, is it correct??

Instead the programming does not work on the calendar, I tried in various ways but the irrigation does not start, I think the control unit is faulty, I tried several times to program a minute per sector but nothing works. Now it’s raining here of course I disabled the smart zone so for now only the manual function works, not with programming. What advice can you give me?

Thanks

Irrigation, It starts by itself without any program

Rosario Russo
Updated at 2022-09-27 11:06:57 UTC 
Also I would like to point out that yesterday at midnight the irrigation started by itself, without having programmed anything, with the app I could not turn off I had to stattare everything through the electrical panel.
As ever this happens, should be a convenience this control unit controlled by the app instead of problems.

Rescheduling the watering schedule

I was wondering if there’s a relationship between the weather predicted on the app and the watering frequency. Here it shows daily temperature predicted at 90 degrees when in fact it’s 82 / 83 when 2 watering a week are sufficient. My app wants to water every day and unless I turn it off I don’t see a way to negotiate a more rational and way less costly rhythm. 
Any insight is so welcome!

No connection to WiFi.

Good afternoon.

Sometime my controller lost the connection to the router Wi-Fi for some time ( one day or more) and then it riconnettes automatically. I don’t know why.

This morning it lost the connection , but after 10 hours it was still disconnetter. I tried to re connect it manuali, but the controller didn’t find my router. The router is very closed to the controller. When I connect my phone to the WiFi of the controller, i see “no connection”. So. Ok the controller is off line and I can’t connect it. what can I do? I already try to reset the controller turning of the elettrico power.

Main feeder line shutoff valve control

Richard Miles
Updated at 2022-10-10 02:16:36 UTC 

My main water line to the sprinkler system came loose and flooded my vacation home yard with 250,000 gallons of water before the leak was discovered and repaired.  Does Netro have the ability to control an electric valve on this feeder line such that the main valve will only open when the irrigation system calls for water?

It looks like the sprinklers are not jumping out because of the water pressure is maybe down right after I installed pixie

Whisperer

Even after several hours in full sun my Whisperer looks dead and does not send any signal.

Shirt or long pushes on the button does not change anything.

I suppose that while not that old I have to buy a new one.

Thanks for your advice

Hello all!

I've just installed the Pixie smart house faucet timer and whenever I try to link the Netro service to my Google Home I get a message saying no devices can be found.


Is there some setting I need to enable to allow the device to be found by Google Home?

Percentage Adjustment

jeremyagrelius@gmail.com
Updated at 2022-10-29 18:31:12 UTC 
Hello, I’ve often thought it would be nice to have the ability to control my smart watering a little further by say, having a percentage adjustment? I’ve played with the settings and gone from Normal watering to Eco to Frequent but find that the differences are more distinct than I want them. Is there a way or maybe an update coming that will allow me to simply put that I want to water 70, 80 percent, etc? I could much more easily manage my water bill and usage with that handy feature. Please let me know if I’m missing it somewhere! Thanks!!
