For this installation, we suggest a few tips to make sure you do not receive any unnecessary alerts.
When using multiple controllers on the same flow meter, there are two alerts we do not recommend using.
- High Flow Leak - High water usage with no zones running.
- Slow Leak - Water usage over last hour with no zones running.
These alerts are controller specific so when the controller with the flow meter is not in operation, it does know about the other controller operation.
- The inter station delay should be set for 10-30 seconds. We do not recommend any higher.
- Change the gallons in the alert to be higher (e.g. alert from 5 gallons to 20 gallons).
Following these parameters should allow the system to run normal when using one flow meter with multiple controllers.
