Limit irrigation duration of a specific zone, water run off issues

Topic: Smart watering

Hi there, 

I'm currently using the smart watering feature on all my zones. However, I have a few zones with turf that are on a slope. It seems like the smart watering feature uses long duration watering sets (more than 25 minutes) that's causing unwanted runoff. Also, since I'm on a well, the longer irrigation sets really taxes my water pressure. My pressure drops after 13 minutes or so making the spray pattern uneavenly distributed with less water and also changing the application rates. Having shorter duration irrigation would help my well recharge and maintain pressure during the irrigation.  Is there a way to minimize the duration or set a max duration irrigation setting for a group of zones so I don't continue sending water down the road? Ideally, having many shorter sets rather than one long set would be helpful, a cycle and soak approach. Thank you!
