Season Adjust %: If your timer has a "seasonal adjust" or "budget" feature, then you may alternatively program your timer with the 7月/8月 schedule, and then use the Season Adjust % to easily adjust your watering to match the seasons. You do not need to add/remove water days!
天: The number of days per week.
周期: The number of cycles or run times. For example: 3:00am, 4:00am, and 5:00am. Multiple cycles helps prevent runoff, and helps plants' roots grow deeper so your garden can grow better.
分钟: The recommended number of minutes to water which varies with the type of sprinklers used and the weather.

  • Spray-head Sprinklers - use the recommended number of minutes.
  • Rotating Sprinklers - multiply the number of recommended minutes per cycle by 3. Example: 3 minutes x 3 = 9 minutes per cycle
  • Drip - multiply the number of recommended minutes per cycle by 5. Example: 3 minutes x 5 = 15 minutes per cycle
