It seems the built-in Rain Delay feature has a couple of issues…
I think there are 2 issues:
1. When setting the Rain Delay hours, it seems the time zone setting is ignored, however, the home page shows the time zone offset (GMT -6 in my case). However, the time shown is 6 hours to soon. Example, if it is 3PM local and I set the Rain Delay for 12 hours, the rain delay should indicate 3AM tomorrow, however, the home page indicates the raindelay is until 9PM today.
2. The home page indicates the Rain Delay feature is being honored, however, visual inspection of my sprinklers indicated the opposite!

I updated to Dan-in-CA’s latest code from his fork on GitHub. See: https://github.com/Dan-in-CA/opensprinkler/tree/master/OpenSprinkler%20Pi/software/demos/interval_program
That version cleans up several issues per the Readme.txt:
* Jun 26 2013
1. Last run logging is now working for manual mode when an optionsl time value is selected, even if more that one station is started.
2. Fixed a bug that prevented the home page display from updating when running irrigation programs.
3. Includes a fix from Samer that allows the program preview time marker to update properly.
I have been focusing on the RainDelay feature since we received about 2″ in the last couple of days. Earlier today, I set the “Rain Delay” to shortly after 8PM local time today. All worked as desired as no zones activated today. However, at 8:20ish Local time, the Rain Delay feature was still activated.
Does anyone else see this phenomenon? To test, set your Rain Delay for 1 hour, then check back after the hour has passed and see if it is still in rain delay mode or not.

This is bizarre… Eventhough the home page has all programs crossed through and the Rain Delay time still showing like it is in a rain delay, subsequent programs do indeed appear to run. I am guessing this is just a visual indicator problem and that the logic of the rain delay is code is correct… well, except for the web page update part… 😀
