Not sure i understand why this is not considered a big problem. And why does it only affect the purple, the most expensive, and useful, one?

Thanks, Taz!
So you are saying that if you use the brown sprinkler on your own flowers and then use the orange sprinkler afterwards it works?
Are these on farms (for both her and you) that have just flowers or other items on those farms? If it is a multi-use farm then what you may be seeing is that the higher level sprinkler is irrigating the other parts. If it is only flowers then it shouldn't allow you to irrigate again for 20 hours. At least that is what I see.

HI, after I wrote the above, I went to one of my farms that need planting and planted it. I then went into my tool box and moused over the brown sprinkler and it showed that I could water again in 1 hour. I then grabbed the orange irrigator and irrigated the crop as usual and it worked just fine. I reloaded the farm to make sure and the crop time had been cut in half and the brown sprinkler said the same time as the orange said (sorry, just hit me, it did not say one hour after I irrigated).

My farms are all multi-use farms. My friend specifically said that she could not use the irrigator after she had watered her flowers, so her's are multi-use, too. I will check with her and make sure she is not using the purple first THEN trying to water flowers.

The brown sprinkler is for water only and shouldn't affect the irrigating sprinklers (red, orange, green, and purple) at all, because they do different things, the brown sprinkler is the same as using the watering can, but the brown sprinkler just does it in a single click. My farm 5 is flowers only, I use my brown sprinkler to revive my flowers so that they can be harvested, then as soon as I verify if they are fertilized and all harvesting is done, then I use my green sprinkler to cut the growing time in half. I have never had to wait to use my larger sprinkler after using the brown sprinkler to water and it also works on my farm 1 which has flowers and trees, it revives the flowers to be harvested and the green sprinkler is used to cut the growing time in half. See the pictures of watering through using the green sprinkler.

Below shows my farm 5 flowers before I did anything and the flowers are dead and need revived.


The second picture shows after I used the brown sprinkler and then harvested the flowers.


The third picture shows after using the sprinkler to cut the growing time in half. I tried to use the orange, but it used the green instead. I guess once you own the higher sprinkler you can't use the others, except for the brown sprinkler since it is different than the other sprinklers.

The only reason I purchased the green sprinkler was for the extending of the gone to waste time, otherwise I probably would have kept with the orange sprinkler.

Then I don't know why your friends purple sprinkler is doing what it is. I have the purple one, so I will test this on mine when my few flowers are ready.

So why it happened to your friend I don't know, but it is not a game wide glitch.

Default Watering dead flowers to harvest.

I was just hired for 20 farms to do everything on them. This is the first time I had dead flowers. Usually the flowers have enough water to harvest. They needed to be watered before I could harvest. I have a sprinkler. So, no big deal on watering them. The only thing is I had to reload each farm before I could harvest them. One farm I tested to see if I could get the bonus without watering and harvesting the flowers and yes, I could. I am a farmer that does every job hired for. So, I could not leave them. I watered and reloaded each farm. Is this normal to have to reload after watering even tho the flowers say ready to harvest after watering? It sure takes some of the farms along time to load much less to reload.
