I do store it in the house in the winter with the water drained and the batteries out of it, so maybe that's why I've have better results than others. I also haven't even replaced the batteries yet since I take them out in the winter. I just wish they had a dual outlet version of this design.
*Follow up - For the start of the 3rd season, the shut off diaphragm failed, allowing the timer to leak. I gave Orbit a call, and they said it had a 6 year warranty and sent me a new one. No hassle other than not having a timer for a week. Very nice customer service! The batteries still work too.
You can set the start time so that if you are using multiple units they do not run at the same time. I've had good luck with reliability this season, better than the Melnor digital units, which I've basically retired due to the valves not closing all the way.
Because these timed dripped systems have worked so well, I wanted to install another timer on a small drip line in the strip next to our driveway and went to Lowes to purchase another timer. I opened the timer box and a small rectangle of paper blew across the driveway. Fortunately, I retrieved the paper and read the following in very small, almost illegible print: "For optimal use, ensure bottom of product is always facing downward." Also, there was a picture of the timer in a horizontal position with an X at the bottom right, presumably indicating improper use of the timer. This was the first timer I intended to use in a horizontal position. Perhaps, some of the problems experienced by other users were caused by placing the timer in a horizontal instead of a vertical position. In any case, this "horizontal use caution" should be displayed more prominently. I am returning the timer to Lowes and hoping to find a timer that performs in the horizontal position.
That said when I contacted orbit with my complaints they took amazing care of me and offered to send two new timers, no questions asked. They simply stated they stood behind their products I would definitely give them another chance, maybe with a different product or an updated version of this product. Service like this is hard to find now days.
Well the two replacements are both dead. One had a valve which started leaking and the second shows a low battery indicator regardless of how new the batteries are (and therefore doesn't work). Unfortunately these timers are simply junk.
