Help! Pump Relay Question

Kirk Davis
Updated at 2022-09-01 13:43:25 UTC 
My unit has been working great . However, the relay no longer trips when a zone is activated. Am I supposed to have 24v A/C between M and C (on the right side of the panel, not the zone side) when a zone is active? I can trip the relay if I pull it from the Netro. Some sort of voltage output map would be helpful. 

I have new grass seed down, so please help soon.

Random sprinklers turn on

Updated at 2022-09-01 12:33:12 UTC 

So has anyone else have random sprinklers turn on even though there is no program active for the sprinkler?

I had to turn off most of my programs because I have to reduce my sprinkler heads. And now I’m getting random sprinklers coming on.

IFTTT out of sync

Andy Fiore
Updated at 2022-08-30 07:08:46 UTC 

Hi and thanks for fixing my last bug.

Another problem I have is with IFTTT being out of sync with my Pixie, eg, I schedule the Pixie to operate between 4:30 am and 4:45 am but IFTTT, whichI use to switch on the pump, reports it active between 4:43 to 5:24 am.

The consequence is that I only get 2 minutes of water as the Pixie has already stopped the flow by the time IFTTT turns the pump on.

Please advise.

Netro Pixie full of water inside the box?

A Gallo
Updated at 2022-08-29 14:28:38 UTC 

Hi

I have been using this Netro Pixie for one and half month. It is actually my second Pixie. The first one arrived broken as the valve was not opening properly for watering, I could hear a "hiisss" sound like air spraying.


The second pixie arrived and I have used it for one and half month, very reliable and I love the fact that it has the photovoltaic cell.


Yet, yesterday I uninstalled it as I do not need it anymore till next spring and... in spite of opening the valve and turning it upside down to empty it, I could still hear noice of water inside the device. I opened the battery compartment and... there was water inside... lots of water... actually as soon as I turned it upside down and shaken it, it went for a reboot.


How is it possible that there was water inside??? I have been using watering timers for fifteen years from brands like Gardenia and never ever had this issue. Isn't it supposed to be a sealed device?


I am sure it won't work next spring...


Anybody else has had this issue?


Thanks

Error in watering ?

Davide M.
Updated at 2022-08-29 11:31:56 UTC 

I do not know if it happened before, I noticed it today with yesterday's irrigations.

The report from the Netro app (iOS) says that 2 of the 5 planned waterings failed (BTW, why , for which technical reason ?)

The report from the web interface says that 3 of the 5 planned waterings failed (BTW , why, same question above)

I set up a IFTTT applet to receive a notification after every successful watering and according to that 5 to 5 waterings were OK.

I do not post screenshots from IFTT as they are 5, but of course they are available for digging if anybody from netro needs them.

Please help me:


  1.  what should I trust ?
  2. based on which  result (app or web) did the scheduler react for today's waterings ? I suppose on web, because I got today exactly the three waterings that "failed" yesterday according to web report.

Thank you.

App locks up

Andy Fiore
Updated at 2022-08-29 08:39:41 UTC 

I have recently found that my Netro APP locks-up waiting for my Pixie to respond while trying to set the schedule or even just entering the home screen.

It is locked-up at the moment (29/08/22 09:39).

I have deleted the APP and relaunched it but still get the problem.

I am running 15.6.1 on my iPhone SE and iPad.

Please advise.

Suspect a shorted solenoid

rbrodt
Updated at 2022-08-25 16:00:32 UTC 

I bought a Netro Spark to replace an existing controller (a Raspberry pi based Open Sprinkler system) which exploded probably due to a shorted solenoid.


I read that the Spark can detect solenoids that are drawing too much current; is it safe to connect the Spark to shorted solenoids without worrying about damage to the controller?


Should I test all the solenoids with an amp meter first just to make sure?

Need Sprite to water less often

texan4ever521
Updated at 2022-08-24 20:24:11 UTC 

I have a netro sprite.  I live in Dallas.  My lawn as drought tolerant bermuda grass.  The grass can easily get by with 10 minutes of watering once a week.  When I look at the logs I see that the sprite is watering the each zone 5 to 15 minutes a day.  I enabled water regulations which  restricted water to Wednesday and Saturday.  Even with this change, the schedule still says 14 to 18 minutes of watering for each zone on the watering days.  I do not have a whisperer


My settings :

grass type:: warm season grass

soil type: clay

sprinkler type: rotor head

shade: none or some shade

smart zone: enabled (Level=advance, mode=eco)

area = 1000 sq ft (I tried reducing this value but then the estimates under "smart zone" go to zero)
