Battery Charging issue

Billy Wood
Updated at 2021-09-23 14:08:21 UTC 
I have a Whisperer that the battery runs down on, even when placing it in good sunshine. I can place it under a lightbulb a couple inches away for a couple of days and it charges up. But after placing back in th yard it goes down again. This is after placing it right next to another Whisperer that charges just fine. Have tried deleting and reinstalling. Is there something else I should try?

Doubts about installation and required devices

Juan Pascual
Updated at 2021-09-22 17:57:24 UTC 
I would like to know how to manage the following garden.
I currently have 5 areas of lawn and other plants, with 3 Hunter PGP sprinklers for each area. Of these 5 zones, there are two with a lot of shade, and the rest are sunny (central Spain).
On the other hand, I have another zone with 6 diffusers, and a last one with a drip system for the Leylandy hedge.
I am interested in acquiring a Spark programmer but... how many Whisperer would I need?

How does Spark differentiate between the different zones and how does it combine the amount of humidity needed? The type of grass I have is made up of Raygrass, Fescue, Poa, and Agrostis. I could send you a plan of my system for your advice.


the outer lines indicate the individual irrigation fields.
AREAS A1 - A2 -A3 - A4 -B1 and B4 are the shadiest areas.
These areas are shadier due to the height of the hedge.

For orientation, a straight line between points 13 and 8 marks the North-South line, where 13 is South and 8 is North.
Neither the diffuser area nor the drip line of the hedge is represented here.
The water inlet is located in the legend E1, between sprinklers 12 and 13.


Thank you very much.

Lots of questions!

Hi Netro Community, I just bought a house with a huge yard and the Netro system. Spent a lot of time identifying zones and getting the watering right by nozzle type, square footage, etc. Some areas still seem too dry and others’ too wet. So…


How can I be sure I have selected the right soil type? 


How can I verify I have the right grade of slope selected by zone? 


Other ways I can help Netro identify dry spots?

It has rained for past 2 days and it still says moisture in grass is 50-60%. I don’t have sensors but my understanding is it supposed to change due to weather forecast! It doesn’t so not very smart!

Default Smart Zone settings

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2021-09-17 00:51:11 UTC 

Each Smart Zone can be set to a preset, e.g. Frequent, Deep, Boost, EPA, etc.  If you click Customized, you can choose the Min and Max Soil Moisture, and the Flow Rate (inches/hour).  Presumably, there is a default value of these three choices for each of the presets.

How can I find out what the presets are for these three values?  e.g. for the EPA preset, what is the Min, Max, and Flow Rate?  Same question for all of the Smart Zone presets.

Thanks!

Ken

Can't get our Netro to reset

Neil Hobbs
Updated at 2021-09-13 20:54:12 UTC 

We recently had chipmunks chew through  the fiberoptic connection for our computer hookup, not before we were advised to install a new Bell router with a different ID and password. But I can't seem to get the Netro system to recognize this new router and its ID, and it has gone offline. Several attempts to get it to go online failed.

The control panel has a slowly flashing white light indicating that it is in a holding mode, I understand.

Can you help me through a re-connection please? The system has been a life-saver to date....

No data registers as zero

Dave C
Updated at 2021-09-10 22:06:38 UTC 

If I leave my sensor for a while it stops recording new data. The days where there is no data is recorded as a zero. This is obviously not correct.  Any plans on updating this?

Where are the moisture sensors on the whisperer?  On one of mine, the ground stake broke and I was thinking of replacing it with a stardard metal stake. Will this work or is the moisture sensor built into the ground stake? Thanks!

Program Not Running

Wally Carnes
Updated at 2021-09-09 02:37:52 UTC 
I have programmed the 8 zones in my Sprite water controller to run 20 minutes at each station. However, it keeps watering based on some manual settings as noted in the red circles below that I have changed over and over to coincide with the program. It still just resets to 1 minute on several stations. What do I need to do to fix this?
