@leemoreau the timer will continue to work based off of the data you’ve input into the unit. Changing the moisture balance is essentially telling the timer to start the smart watering period over from a certain moisture balance, it will not change the algorithm at all. I suggest just setting the timer one time, watching it for a week or two without making any adjustments (the timer gets smarter the longer it sits), and once those two weeks are up, access the state of your lawn and make changes as needed.
We do recommend using catch cups to get the best efficiency on your lawn. This will take into account the overlap in zones.
