Manually Set Up Watering Delay (formerly Rain Delay)

If you would like to set up a manual watering delay, this can be done very easily from the "More" tab of your Rachio app.


Enabling a Manual Water Delay will not stop any currently-running schedules; only future schedules will be prevented from running while the delay is active.
Additionally, the Manual Water Delay will SKIP the watering schedule(s) while active and does not make it up after the rain delay expires.

How to Set a Water Delay

  1. More tab

    At the top of the "More" tab, you will see "Delay Water". Simply click on this and a graphic will appear.


  2. Choose length.

    Choose the number or days that you want to set the delay for.

  3. Check status.

    Once a length of time is selected, the Delay Water icon will state the date that the delay is set to expire.

  4. Check device updates.

    In the "History" tab, you will see a notification for this when a schedule has been skipped.
