I’ve been doing a lot of reading about weather-based irrigation over the last few weeks. There’s a lot written about the “water balance” or checkbook approach …I’m not sure the best way to integrate this into OSPi, since the model is so different than the current one. Ideas?

From a UI perspective perhaps the user is presented with a choice for a simple or advanced mode. Choosing advanced would engage the checkbook approach and dump (or archive) the settings from the simple mode (and visa versa).

Bringing advanced industrial grade irrigation control and methodologies to a residential application is why I am so excited about this project!
