I know it doesn’t tie into ST, but I also know this community is into things like this so thought I would ask anyway. Wasn’t sure the best place to post this. I have a Skydrop and have had it for 2 years. It has done a decent job (not terribly thrilled though) until this year. I now find it isn’t tracking my rainfall well at all and the schedules are kind of goofed. Sometimes it misses substantial rainfall entirely or even worse captures it, but when the next forecast cycles through, it erases the fact that it recorded the rain fall in the first place. I also am finding it is running more than I want, even more than the schedule is set for. I even found it ran the same zone 2 days in a row. Anyone else had experiences like this, and if so, have any tips? I supposed I could try and reset it entirely, although not sure how.
I tried to contact support via email and the app but no one is getting back to me (reached out on Friday) and their phone hours are squarely lined up with my work day so I can’t really call from work. I guess I might call to just tell them to check their support email.
That being said, assuming I can’t right the ship, I think I will start looking at a replacement. Water is WAY to expensive where I am to be over watering not to mention when it runs too often I am breaking water restrictions. I have been watching the discussions on the forum and people seem to like Rachio. The lack of onboard control turned me off originally (plus caught Skydrop on sale) but that seems to be resolved now. Can anyone point me to a good forum post where people may be discussing various controllers?
