I am now one month after my initial review, starting to have problems with each of the timers. One has TWICE remained on ALL NIGHT, not kicking off when it should have. Any chance of a $ savings completely down the drain. The other unit has developed a crack in it where it screws onto the spigot and thus shoots a small stream of water out of it when in use. If I could, I would return these two units.
yet another addendum: it is August 12, 2014, two days less than a year since I purchased two of these, and both are now trash. If I could change to 0 stars I would. Both cracked this summer at the plastic base where the hose connects to the unit. I used it for residential purposes, take good care of my things, and to me to last less than a year is not a good quality product. I was expecting more. So both are broken and in the trash less than a year later, and even when working I could not with 100% certainty rely on them to shut off when they were supposed to. See my addendum's above.
And when it flows, it severely restricts the flow.
Please tell me why everything is low quality these days. Are the manufactures trying to sell you the same thing over and over again? Is it a race to the price bottom?
Come on everyone -- start demanding quality from manufacturers. Buying quality and durability once is way cheaper than buying over and over and ...
to their credit, they DO shut the water off when they hit zero but when they hit zero, the flood gates open. The whole point of a timer is to limit how much water comes out of the spigot. With as bad as these two leaked, I may as well have just left the water on all day...
I ended up buying the gardensmith single timer (which unfortunately Amazon no longer stocks) and it works perfectly and has lasted all summer.
I've used several expensive digital timers in the past and they all will eventually fail so spending lots of $$ on them is futile. I'm to the point where I really don't get mad when these things break. I assume that they are engineered to maybe last you through 1 season and get replaced the next year so stick with the cheap ones and if you find one that shuts off properly when it hits zero, just use it and go buy another when (not if) it fails.
As for my 2 Nelson timers, i ended up removing the gray rubber cover and just totally filling in the little cavity with the valve with epoxy, letting it cure for a day and then lining the edge of the rubber cover with silicone epoxy and letting it cure. Guess what? No leaks.
Second of all, the timer didn't really work. I would set the time at 15, 30, 45 minutes, but the timer would just stay stuck at the same position. It had one job. One job! And couldn't do it.
