Previously I purchased one item to test on my back yard, then after using it for a few weeks, I decided to purchase the same model for my front yard. Now I don't have to worry about watering.
I thought it would be useful to give a few more details about watering options:
HOW LONG: 0 - 240 minutes with 1 minute interval.
HOW OFTEN: every 6 hours, 12 hours, 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 4 days, 5 days, 6 days, 7 days.
MANUAL: 0 - 240 minutes with 1 minute interval.
Manual mode is managed by a dedicated button, so using it does not affect your automatic settings and they remain unchanged.
When set to start in manual mode, it gives a few seconds before starting. I find it quite useful as my hose outlet is on the other side of the yard, and I have enough time to get of the way.
I used this timer for about a month, so it is hard to say if it will last long. But considering how it appears, I have a strong feeling that it will. Overall I am impressed and can strongly recommend this item to others.
P.S. This is my first review on Amazon, I just thought this product deserves a few minutes to tell people about. :)
This timer is so straightforward, there's nothing to figure out. The large dial and readout is perfect for my aging eyes. You just turn the dial to whatever setting you want to change, then adjust it to the exact minute.
I'm using 6 of these - the clocks are synchronized and the timers set so that they all run at different times in the night.
For example, one zone is just pots on the deck, with drippers. 12 minutes twice a day seems just about right. As it gets hotter, bumping it up to 14 or 15 minutes will take 10 seconds. It's nice to control it with this precision.
Now for the additional features that really make this shine:
Need some water now? One click shopping. Hit a button and it turns on for 10 minutes(adjustable).
Raining today? Hit the + button and shut it off for 1, 2, or 3 days.
Raining all week? Turn the dial one click from AUTO to OFF. Just remember to turn it back on when the rain stops.
The build on these seems good. The dial, buttons, battery compartment all seem to be well engineered. As mentioned, I have 6 - all new this season. I'll report back on their longevity.
1. simple to use
2. has manual override
3. big easy to see digital read out and dial
4. works on two AA batteries, so I am able to use rechargeable AA batteries that I prefer for all my battery powered items.
I don't like:
1. Programming mode is very limited. The minimum time period you can set it up for is every 6 hours. It has to be exactly 6 hours apart. My first timer gives me full control over when the waterings occur. For example, I do not want to water in the middle of the night as might promote root rot. But I do want to water more frequently during the day in the middle of hot summer. This timer does not give that type of control.
This Orbit timer controls a new branch of my drip irrigation system. I am attaching a photo which shows my set up.
The house spigot has a Y to which the first timer (the timer that I like better by DIG) and a short utility hose is attached.
The short utility hose has another Y which is attached to this timer, the second end of the Y goes to a garden hose.
Both timers are connected to 1/4 tubing (via various fittings such as pressure regulator, hose-to-tube adapter, filter, backup flow controller) that waters my plants via a drip irrigation system. The second Y and timer are placed on an old planter to hold them off the ground. All connections are made with the aid of Teflon tape. This set up works very well - no leaks, easy to get to all the switches.Read more ›
As with all water timers, make sure you bring it in during the winter or it probably will be leaking all over the place next year.
UPDATE (one year later): This one leaks a bit, just like every other timer I've tried by every other manufacturer. The leak is internal to the unit; it's not at the spigot connection. It was leakproof for the first season. I did not leave it out during the winter months. And I always use a bit of teflon tape around the spigot connection. Leaks anyway
