Installation Direct to pump

Tim Foster
Updated at 2019-10-03 11:23:32 UTC 

OK. I have my plumber installing this. Unfortunately, this is México and so beyond the basics, most plumbers are struggling about in the dark. We've figured most of it out, but we're a bit in the dark on a couple of bits.


I have the following:

A ground source well with a Franklin Electric submersible pump as my water source. This pumps directly from the ground to the zone controller.

The zone controller is an Antelco EzyValve4 solenoid (https://antelco.com/us/products/valves/automatic/ezyvalve-4). This has a water input and four zone outputs. Each of the four solenoids has two wires and their website shows how to connect 1 of the wires together as the common and then the other four for each controller. This is all good.

The problem is power to the pump. The Netro installation video says "if you have a master valve, connect that to the M slot". I googled a bit and found "A master valve is an automatic valve that is installed at the point where the irrigation system connects to the water supply. (Sometimes this circuit is called a “pump start circuit”. Both types of circuits work identical, and can be used for a pump and/or a master valve.) The controller turns the master valve on and off."

So, does this mean I connect the power from the pump directly to the "M" slot? and would this then turn on the pump when a zone is opened for watering? So, Zone 1 comes on to water the garden, does this also switch the pump on?

From what I understand the pump will be 110v, so do I need a relay unit between the pump wire and the Neatro (24v)?


Can anyone give me a confirmation that this is the right way to configure it please?

Unable to reset into Host mode to change WiFi setting

Updated at 2020-08-16 17:29:54 UTC 

Hello,


I have a 6 zone Netro sprite and need to update my wifi settings. No matter what I do I'm unable to get the Netro to enter host mode. I've tried hitting the RST button numerous times before or after manual reboots (even waiting the full 3+ minutes after re-plugging the device in). I even tried a full manual reset by holding the RST button for 10 seconds and the device still doesn't reset. I'm starting to doubt whether the reset button on my device works.

Has any one had any similar problems or pointers for just getting the Netro to join a new WiFi network? I'd rather not do a full reset and lose my zone settings, but at this point I've even tried that and can't get that working.

Amount of Rainfall keeps changing

Updated at 2019-06-19 02:47:10 UTC 
Netro app keeps changing the amount of rainfall that we have had. Day before yesterday it rained heavily. The very next day Netro app showed that it rained 1 inch. Today it’s showing that on that same day it rained only 0.33 inch. Any idea why it keeps fluctuating for something that has already happened in the past?

hello,

 I have a problem with a Whisperer, it turns off, when turned on it detects the data, after an hour it should detect the data again instead it turns off.  I bought 3, the other 2 work perfectly.  I send you photos of zone 6 where the Whisperer is connected.  I did the reconfiguration again but nothing has changed.  I need help.

Thanks

Programs that ignore sensors?

Jacques
Updated at 2021-06-20 19:10:17 UTC 
Is it possible to create a program that ignores the data from the whisper sensors? When its above 90, I like to run a 3 minute session on all zones to cool the blades off, but if the moisture is too high it skips those zones. I'm fine with my other programs skipping since they're more about the soil.

Smart vs. manual program

Updated at 2018-07-13 22:36:12 UTC 

Hi just wanted to know if I running only customs programs for watering I can take advantage of the Smart Watering feature. In other words, I only have my own watering program, NO smart programs, and need to know if the controller will skip these programs when raining. If NOT will the sensor allow provide that feature?

Thx - Mike

Same Zone Settings, Different Results

bmcginni
Updated at 2018-07-14 11:23:00 UTC 

Hello - I have a 9 zone system. I have set all of the zones with the exact same settings for type, grass, etc. I do not have any sensors. 

However, the app shows the zones having different moisture levels, and waters certain zones differently than others, even though the settings and system location are the exact same. 

Can you help me understand why the system would treat these identically programmed zones differently

Thanks!

In the zone settings, the app offers different types of watering, for example, regular, deep watering, boost, etc. One is labeled EPA. 


What are the differences between the settings and watering times/amounts for: regular, boost, and EPA?

Zone Size Setting With Overlapping Sprinklers

Updated at 2022-04-13 14:39:27 UTC 

Hi,


How do I set zone size for lawn areas sprinklers that overlap one and other?  For example, I have 6 zones, and in the front Zone 1 and Zone 2 overlap the areas they water in some cases.  So, in my case if the area covered by both zones is a total of 1000 feet, do I set each zone for 500 feet or each zone for 1000 feet.  Thanks.
