I 100% agree that Tucor is the way to go, especially on sites where we foot the bill for the gear to run online monitoring. It is tucked into the yearly maintenance contract, but the cost savings of having a tech programming in the field is massive. I would rather have the techs checks all the zones, report to the service manager, and then the manager makes the adjustments at the shop.
We can sell it to the customer easy by just saving them water by killing the programs before rain hits the ground. I would rather do all the programming manually rather than use ET, but we have sites done both ways.
