Smart Watering is an automated watering schedule that uses information about environmental conditions to ensure your plants get the optimum amount of water. Evaporation will draw moisture from your garden, while rainfall and irrigation will add moisture. Understanding these conditions allows Hydrawise to decide when the time is right to water your garden.
For each zone, we’ll ask you to specify the watering length and peak watering frequency:
- The watering length is how long watering needs to run to fully water your zone.
- The peak watering frequency is how often you would normally water this zone during your peak irrigation period.
The controller will vary your watering frequency based on actual evaporation and rainfall in your area on a day-to-day basis.
