To set a delay between your zones (inter-zone delay) or for a master valve/pump before the zone starts (master valve delay), please view the steps and screenshots to access this feature:
- Select "Controller Settings" from the home dashboard on the left hand side.
- Next, scroll over to "valve delays" and click the icon
- Enter each "delay" required in seconds format and Click OK.
|Inter-Zone Delay||The number of seconds between each of the zone run times.||3,600 Seconds|
|Master Valve Delay||The minimum number of seconds that the master valve should be active before any zone starts. Hydrawise on shut down always shuts the station valve 1st and then about 1 second later shuts the master valve.||600 Seconds|
Some watering systems require water pressure for a sprinkler head to pop up. 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.
