Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, option 1 doesn’t work for me because I use 7 watering zones and the master for my well pump. I tried setting up option 2, and it technically works…. but man, that was painful.

If anyone is actually using option 2, I’d like some feedback on your experience.

I am using the Zimmerman weather based adjustments. When the zone times get “adjusted” due to weather, I am concerned how zone 8 (for my well pump) will be affected. I don’t want my well pump to run for extended periods without a zone valve being open since that heats up the pump head. I also need the well pump to run at least 2-3 minutes to ensure my last valve closes. Seems like (to be safe), I shouldn’t enable weather based runtime adjustments?
