Thinking about this differently today. The problem I am having is making sure my power supply can comfortably handle all of the in-rush current to each solenoid when multiple zones activate simultaneously.
Rather than me trying to micromanage this by using offsets, what if we simply added a small (maybe 100ms) sleep between when opensprinkler activates a zone? This allows inrush current to pass before a new zone opens up, and would otherwise by imperceptible from the user experience.
Putting it behind a flag like “Power Supply In-rush Protection” would be fine, but honestly I think this is probably a good feature to have anyway, especially since anyone using a master pump is always turning on at least 2 zones at once.
