How did you calculate my estimated gallons used/saved?
We estimate inches/hour based on the nozzle type, and assume a typical 1,000 sqft zone area. These are plugged into our formula to get gallons/min, and since we know how many minutes a given head has run for, we now have our estimated gallons.
At this time, Flex schedules do not calculate any savings.
Can I see the data you've collected?
What is the 'Water Saved by the Rachio Community' data based off of?
This is the aggregate of all Weather Intelligence Savings across all Rachio controllers. It is an estimation in gallons, which is then converted to various metrics (glasses of water, swimming pools, etc.) to give a better perspective of just how much water has been saved. All metrics are rounded to the nearest whole number.
- 1 gallon = 0.133681 Cubic Feet
- 1 Olympic-size Swimming Pool = 660,000 gallons
How do my savings compare with those people without a Rachio smart controller?
What is the future of the Analytics/Reports?
