The CYCLE & SOAK feature allows you to split a station’s runtime into shorter watering periods. The shorter watering periods will help prevent runoff in situations like slopes or tight soils. It is recommended that the CYCLE time is less than the station’s watering time, and the SOAK time for the water to be absorbed. The total number of cycles is determined by taking the total programmed station run time and dividing it by the CYCLE time (e.g., see chart below).
|Zone Run Time||Cycle Time Set||Min Soak Time set|
|12 Minutes||4 Minutes||20 Minutes|
|Number of cycles|
|3 Cycles of 4 Minutes|
