Their experts will tell you precisely what to do regarding irrigation timing. They may recommend you swap out some of the emitters as they may be incorrect for the plant (common). I had them come to my house and the advice was excellent.

I think you need a friend or neighbor to come look at your landscaping every week or so. In addition, you should separately post a question here regarding things you should do prior to leaving your house vacant for 2 months. Welcome to the joys of home ownership.
Unfortunately I don't have friends here and I don't know my neighbors they don't seem friendly

All the more reason to get your irrigation issues dealt with by a professional before you leave town for two months. It will start getting hot here by then and you could lose any landscaping you have.

Do like I did and cut your losses. Cut off your drip irrigation system completely, don't use it. You'll thank me later. Do away with anything that needs to be watered or water them manually. The drip irrigation system will spring a leak constantly, it's playing whack-a-mole.

Your best bet would be to have a professional evaluate your situation. It could be something as simple as replacing the battery.

We installed a homegrown drip irrigation system using Rainbird parts. Did not have a timer on it. Had no problems with it and we used it for about 9 years.

We have hired a gardener to maintain the yard and paid to have an updated irrigation system installed. Still no problems.

I have discovered our plants have grown better and stayed healthier when using a drip system to water them.
