I bought one of these after seeding my yard. The timer was easy to set and modify compared to some fully digital ones, not all, just some. I've had no problems my first two summers with this. I usually have it set and the water on the entire summer with no leaks. You can manually water with it too. I saw a review that said otherwise, but you just need to set it to "once" and "on".

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.

I have two of these, and have used them one season. The programming is extremely easy to use and gives you enough options -- much simpler than the some of the other digital ones. The easy programming is a big plus if you are establishing a lawn and need to start with a lot of watering and then reduce it over time. The batteries are very easy to change ... and you should plan to run through a set of 3 AA batteries about every six weeks if you have the valves working daily. There is a low-battery indicator to let you know when they need to be changed. Overall, ease-of-use is a huge plus on this item. Like another reviewer noted ... you do have to replace the cover each time after changing the programming, which takes about 5 seconds.

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.

This August, I spent several weeks installing three drip systems to water flower boxes in our entry way, on our balcony, and on our patio. On each of these three drip systems, the Orbit Sunmate 62040 has worked great, and my wife is delighted that almost all of our flowers are being watered automatically to include her Topsy Turvy Tomato Tree on the third floor balcony, the greatest achievement of my drip line engineering. To help the timer valves work properly, I installed pressure regulators reducing the water pressure to 35 psi so the valves wouldn't be overpowered by the water pressure. While setting the timers, I noticed a discrepancy between the instructions on the paper product guide and the instructions on the timer itself. On the timer, the instructions state that Dial B should first be set to Off before setting Dial A. So far, these timers have worked perfectly. However, all of these timers are in a vertical position.

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.

I manage some condominiums with timed landscape water needs and have tried a variety of timers. This is the ONLY one to buy, in my limited opinion. The main reasons, apart from general reliability, is 1) it is intuitive to program - this is more important than most people think. When the new season starts and you have lost the program instruction, it is nice to know that you don't need them because the unit function is so straight-forward; 2) see-through plastic cover for the tender parts - there WILL be water all over the place, so god to have some protection; 3) easy to change out the batteries. Again, bigger deal than most people think, when the unit is a couple years old and the battery compartment is crusty and filled with ants! Hope they keep making this unit, I find it not reliably available in some box stores.

I have had two of these watering times, in one unit the timer simply stopped functioning and the batteries had to be removed for it to start opening on it's schedule again. Every few days it would simply stop. I replaced that unit and got another one which began leaking through the valve after a few months.

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.
