Agreed. Who the hell dictates run times on zones without knowing PR? That has got to be one of the most idiotic, uniformed irrigation restriction I have ever seen.
You can still use the restricted run times, however it is likely you will run into problems with insufficient time to water. Adjustments can be made to other parameters to compensate, however getting the controller to adhere to idiotic zone runtime restrictions while still using the primary "smart" features of the controller will be more than a little difficult, if not impossible. The whole point of using a controller like this is to get a more accurate estimation of landscape water needs and to reduce the need for manually adjustments to the controller as environmental conditions change.
p.s. TomTom, feel free to forward my response to the appropriate regulatory agency.
