The Cycle and Soak feature allows you to split a station’s runtime into shorter watering periods. The shorter watering periods will help prevent run off 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.
Where to find: Hold + and turn to Run Times. Enter Cycle, press PRG to set the Soak.
Description: Sets max time a station can run at once, and minimum time it must wait before another cycle. Divides run time into segments to prevent runoff.
