Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JWisc04 Good Controller and Easy to Use
I've only had this new controller installed for a couple weeks but so far, I'm very happy with it. It replaced my original Rain Bird controller that lasted about 25 years. I was a little apprehensive about trying to install the new one myself since I don't install irrigation systems and I'm not an electrician. The new one is really easy to install as long as you label the zone wires coming into it. Programming the SST1200 was simple too and it's easy to change days, times, etc. If this lasts anywhere near as long as the old one did, I will be extremely happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barkeller Great Rain Bird Purchase
I purchased a 12 Station Rain Bird Irrigation Timer Model SST-1200 to replace a worn out old model Rain Bird timer. After I uninstalled the old model, I installed the new model where the old one had been in the garage and it fit into the same space perfectly. It was easy to set up and has been running great. I have a 10 station sprinkler system for my outside trees and plants. You can also describe your "stations" as "zones" or "valves"; as the 3 terms have the same meaning. This model is very easy to understand and to work with for all of your sprinkler stations, and you can set it for automatic watering or you can manually water or do both. I have been very pleased with how easy the unit is to operate.
If you do like I did and buy a new model to replace the old, I would recommend that before you detach the wires leading to the various zones, that you label each wire with the correct zone number, because you have to place each of the old zone wires to the corresponding zone on the new model and the installation will go much quicker. That way you will have the correct zone wire from the old model going to the correct zone wire attachment for the new model. The wires attach by zone number. There is a specific wire for each zone. In my case it it started with a wire for zone 1 and ended with a wire for zone 10. You need to know which wire is for which zone, so remember that.

I've never wired a sprinkler control....but when my 25 year old Rain Bird finally stroked I had no choice. Picked another Rain Bird and they did not disappoint. All is well sprinklers working again.

The Rainbird Timer is excellent. Have had another product,( bought the same timer thrice) and had many problems. After three attempts, this Timer was recommended by TIM , one of the most helpful individuals, that I have met at the Vista Home Depot.
Yes This was installed without any problems, very easy to set it up and works like a charm. Yes I will certainly reccomend this unit to anyone who would like to have a trouble free unit.
