    Today, my smart-water event was a single zone, 6 different times, 12 minutes each. That is 1 hour and 12 minutes of watering!

    I don’t believe it. I think it actually only watered 3 times, 12 minutes each.
    My water bill, however, makes me think that b-hyve sometimes overwaters.

    We are at odds, and not speaking to each other. I ask “Why are you using so much more water than my old timer?” and I get no response. B-hyve is silent, only offering me its Calendar showing how smart it is to water one zone for 72 minutes.

    MAC: 44:67:55:02:B3:1B
    Firmware: 0038.

    If my zone is being watered for 72 minutes, I want Orbit to float me a loan (on top of the water running down the proverbial drain) to pay for my usage. If not being watered for 72 minutes, I want the Calendar to be accurate. It is my window into my watering world, so in my view, the expected behavior is to report the watering events accurately.

    Thank you for your time and support.

    I too just noticed this same issue on my B-hyve controller. Same firmware version 0038. MAC: 44:67:55:02:F4:2c. It looks like this has been an issue since June based on other similar posts.

    @jwrey01 I do see that it watered Station 2 for 12 minutes 6 times that day. I would recommend going into Zones and then tap zone 2. Then tap “Smart Details”. You can then tap “Watering Schedule Adjustment” to decrease how much and how often it runs.
