We had a power outage yesterday and my Bounty warned me to reset time and settings, but I did something wrong and I lost my previous settings... since I'm growing lettuce, I tried to select that garden settings, but it started from scratch...I mean it says it's day 1 of germination, instead of day 44 from start. My question is: How do I set manually the pump? I mean: how many minutes on per hour, since it's day 44 from sowing?
The harvest runs 4 or is it 5 minutes every hour. The larger machines run one hour every 12 in germination mode. Then some switch to 24/7 after two weeks. Depending on the machine you may have to manually change the settings.
As for burning out, I have machines that the pump still runs after three years. Then again I keep it maintained by cleaning the filter and the pump on a regular basis. I always keep a spare or two around in case .. which had happened to me but once.
