Interval - three days

Elisabeth Dubin
Updated at 2022-08-15 21:18:46 UTC 

Update:  in my original post below, I thought the problem was using the interval function set to three days. Since I posted that, I have also noticed that another zone which used the weekly function set to Monday and Friday also was not operating for the last several weeks. The one thing these all have in common is that the time was set for 60 minutes. Could there be a bug where if you set the zone to water a full 60 minutes, it doesn’t work at all?


Original post: I’ve been mostly satisfied with Netro for a few years now, but this is the first season I tried using the interval of “every three days.“ I started the setting last month in a few areas, and my plants were doing poorly. It took me this long to realize that it just simply isn’t watering them at all. That’s right, my programs are set up for every three days, and when I look at the schedule to determine when the last watering cycle was, they just haven’t been watered at all since I switched to the interval of three days. For now I’ve gone back to my weekly settings where I chose Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but am I the only one who can’t use the interval function?  I have dead plants because of this.

How to calculate Flow rate for drip irrigation?

Ethan R
Updated at 2022-08-11 20:18:04 UTC 
I use the facet tuner for drip irrigation to my dahlias. I want the custom setting to have it run at 40% until it gets to 90%

There is a flow rate with a default option. Is there any value in calculating my actual flow rate? Will it just estimate run time better or will it actually impact the run time?  Or will it run indefinitely till it gets to 90%?

Thanks

Damages due to constant water pressure on the system

Jorma Spitz
Updated at 2022-08-11 10:20:09 UTC 

Hi

I know this issue already got mentioned by other users over a year ago, but I would like to ask again for fixing this bug. I know that on a technical level fixing this will take only a few minutes. 

To my understanding the main valves is intended to avoid constant water pressure on the system. Unfortunately the closing sequence is mixed up and the main valve closes a second or two after the last watering valve closes. This means that there's contant water pressure on the system. At the moment I would need to manually open one of the valves three times a day to release the pressure (at 5:30AM, at 10AM and at 17PM). This is not exactly what I expect from a smart watering system. 

Just yesterday I had to replace a part of my systems because it broke due to the constant pressure. 

I know it's tempting to point at everybody else in order to refuse acknowledging that there is an important improvement to be made. But fixing this will probably cost less time than I used to write this text, seriously!

And while in my case it wasn't a Desaster because I was lucky that the pipe connection broke during manual activation of a watering program. But in other cases, if this happens without getting noticed, this could easily destroy a whole greenhouse of commercial food production.

That said, please fix this minor but important bug ASAP.

I really can't believe that you guys simply ignored the previous reports of this bug. But I hope you do the necessary steps to initiate the fixing of this bug.


Regards

Hi there, 

I'm noticing a very large difference (greater than 5 degrees) in the temperatures forcasted  provided by NetroWeather. Maybe my region isn't covered or forcasted accurately by the netro weather service. I didn't know if I am only experiecing this issue or if it is more widespread. Why is the recommendation 5 stars?

Hello,


In my settings the watering time is set from 2:00 to 6:00 in the morning.


The system shows in the watering plan that some zones will start after 6:00 oclock. 


This needs to be fixed because of a mowing robot wich would drive against the irrigation system

Smart Zone Frequency and duration

Gregor Schuller
Updated at 2022-08-05 07:45:41 UTC 

Hello,

in my app I have three zones for watering the lawn.

two of them are about 140 sqm and they are in the sun the whole day.

The third zone is about 60sqm and is in the shade from 11 or 12 oclock.


in the two bigger areas the frequency and duration wich is shown in the app is OK (mode: frequently every 1.98 days for 19.29 minutes)

in the smaller area the app shows in regular mode every 1.2 days for 38.57 minutes. but that is two much water on this small zone in the shade.


Is there a solution to change this?


Best regards

Just got the new Spark 16 sprinkler controller and installed it yesterday.  I'm trying to add "New Manager" in the app (& tried it on the website too), but keep getting this error message:  "ERROR:  Can't find user [email]"   (I've omitted the specific email address of the manager/player I'm trying to add and simply used [email] as a placeholder for this thread)

I've also tried to add "New Player" and get the same error message.

App help to program to not water if it rained

sumopromos
Updated at 2022-07-23 12:38:33 UTC 

Hey All!

I have a Netro sprite. I want to water my grass everyday unless it rained or is going to rain. It rained something crazy last night and yet it still watered this morning. What am I missing? 


Also I hit rain delay earlier and hit done showing a 5 day delay, how do I change that once I hit it. It still shows the next watering is in 5 days. 


I’m pretty good with computers and apps but this one isn’t easy for me to wrap my head around. Things just don’t seem to be easy to make things happen. IMHO! 


Thanks.

Device and app depends on Netro servers

David Domingues
Updated at 2022-07-16 17:16:14 UTC 

Hello.

Everything was fine so far with my sprite controller and I must say I like it a lot.

During this Saturday, I was not able to reach the app. It was opening and closing right after. I reinstalled it. Same behaviour. I installed it on another phone with the same result.

I went to the main website and could witness no login or forum was available allegedly due to a high volume of traffic. 

My device should be able to work independently from your servers availability. If your company runs of business today, how are your customer going to use the devices they bought from you?

It is urgent, you update your app to be able to work autonomously in offline mode, regardless the state of your servers

Netro weather not setting schedule for watering

Netro weather not setting schedule for watering.  I have to water manually.  Why?  I do not have smart sensors so that is not selected.  All zones are enabled, but If I do not set a manual watering schedule it won't water.  Also it is treating every day as a rain day.  How do I change this?
