Underground Installation Instructions
The following instructions have been tested internally, but are still undergoing external testing with customers for feedback and are subject to change without notice.
Underground installation times can vary based on irrigation setup. While underground installation times can average 2 hours, we recommend 3.5 hours for adequate time.
Installation site must be within 75 feet of an aboveground (not in a basement), indoor, installed and set up Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller. For more information on system compatibility, select your system-specific instructions below.
Do not glue fittings into the Rachio Wireless Flow Meter. The flow meter is made of ABS plastic and can be damaged if the wrong solvent is used. The fittings recommended do not require glue and are easy to install.
