    The other day, I set a 30 day manual rain delay. This evening, my sprinklers started running. When I realized this, I opened the app and stopped the watering. Then the rain delay message displayed showing 27 delay days left. Why would it rain on a manual delay?

    @dhunter6 This is an issue that has just popped up. I will be emailing you with some questions about your system.

    I had the same issue this week. The app shows a delay of 5 days, but I noticed the grass was wet this morning and saw in the log that the system did indeed water the lawn.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    My situation may be unusual. I WANT Rain Delay to work (Smart Watering) on one program — the one I use to start the relay on my big irrigation pump that waters my tropical fruit grove every other day. BUT I also have a problem in that I use microjets for irrigation and ants use the small nozzle openings as an entrance to begin building a nest, therefore blocking the irrigation water flow. This occurs if the sprinklers haven’t run for a day or more. So I also want to run the system for about 5 minutes every 12 hours and for that program I do NOT want Rain Delay to occur.

    I see no way to turn on Smart Watering for one program (my usual irrigation) but not have it effective for another one (my ‘cleansing’ runs for the microjets). As far as I can see, the entire device (all programs) are subject to the same Smart Watering setting. Am I wrong? and, if I’m correct, this should be an option available in a future firmware upgrade.

    My firmware is 038 (6 zone system).

    You are right in your assumption that the rain delays are an all or nothing function on our timers. Either all programs are delayed or none of the programs are delayed. This does not have a direct effect on manual watering and you should be able to run your timers manually even in a rain delay. Your suggestion is important to us and I will make sure it makes it’s way to the right people for you. Thank you.
