Account - Setting Delay

To set delay timers on either your master valve or inter-zone delay, go to   menu then configuration as shown below:

The maximum delay time you can set is as follows: 

Inter-Zone Delay The delay between each zone's start times. 3,600 Seconds
Master Valve Delay The number of seconds that the master valve starts before a zone starts. 600 Seconds


Some watering systems require water pressure for a sprinkler head to pop up. Thus, this delay can be used to ensure that water pressure is built up or maintained before a zone starts watering (or before the next zone begins watering) by delaying the time the next valve opens, ensuring water pressure is present. Depending on your specified setup, these delays can be used to meet those requirements. If you have questions about how to set delays, email us at support@hydrawise.com.

NOTE You can only set a universal delay and cannot set delays for specific zones only. So delays are either set on or off.
