the station run time (by percentage) of all stations assigned to a
selected program. This is handy for making temporary overall station
run time adjustments without changing the original run time settings.
Water Budgeting % values range from 10% to 200% in 10%
increments, with 100% being the normal setting.
For example, as the fall season approaches and the temperature
