Hi again. After my water flow sensor worked perfectly for about a year and measured consumption very accurately version 3.0 of the rachio app came along and messed it up again.
Initially, after the update, my controller was reporting some ridiculously high consumption numbers (over 100,000 gallons per month, when the city meter reported about 6,000, as usual). I thought that was some kind of a temporary bug, and waited patiently hoping it would be fixed in the next minor update. And it did. My consumption numbers this past month have been much more reasonable, but not very accurate.
These are my last two measurements:
Measurement 1: City meter: 323 gal, Rachio: 273 gal
Measurement 2: City meter: 135 gal, Rachio: 86 gal
My question is, did the latest update and the introduction of the new flow sensor from rachio somehow change how the controller interprets the signal that comes from older sensors, and in what way?
As I had mentioned earlier, my sensor is CST FSI-T10-001.
