Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubz16 New irrigation clock
I replaced my old Toro Clock which was about 13 yrs old. The Rainbird has basically the same functions and was an easy hook up. I took a picture of the old connections and installed them the same on the new clock. I do not have a cover as it is and inside clock but I may get one to keep the dust off it.Overall it has been working as expected. If you want a simple replacement or a new timer I would recommend this one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RetireeHousewife You'll need your reading glasses
The programmable keypad for our sprinkler system stopped functioning and oh what a pain. This one was recommended to me on Neighbor to Neighbor and so I went and purchased one. We are not handymen at our house so we hired our plumbers to hook it up and it works fine. FYI you don't really need a plumber, there is no piping to be hooked up, just some wiring. Once it was programmed we let it roll. The writing on the keypad is small and I needed my reading glasses to see what was what especially since it is installed at slightly higher than my eye level. I got a sharpie and wrote a larger M, T, W, etc on the keypad for the days and used similar abbreviations so I could see to find everything. With that one drawback, the keypad is working well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul77583 Great purchase
I purchased this irrigation time to replace the HUNTER X-CORE that was installed when our irrigation system was installed 4 years ago. The timer just lost it's mind and kept cycling over and over until I'd shut it off. This RAIN BIRD SST600I had good reviews and a more familiar name. Installation was very simple and straight forward as was programing it. I'm very happy with the product and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traci4444 EASY....! Watch all the videos before install!
So, I cannot attest to longevity, because I just installed it. We were replacing a 14 year old Irritrol. Should have done this years ago as we've been replacing part after part, but never knew the timer was the real culprit... and solenoids are expensive! WATCH the videos on this site, it explains how easy it all is. AND, if you want it to run zone after zone, it will be smart enough to know that, just make all the zones start at the same time. It took me about 10 minutes to install, and only that long because I had to cut the stripped wires down a little bit. I'm a 42 yr old woman and a little bit handy, but it was easy, really.... and it beats this antiquated Irritrol by a zillion miles!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bri Downgraded this model
Rain Bird cheapened this model compared to the last. Wire connection don't work as well and are hard to load. They dropped the every 3 day watering auto cycle option. since weeks have odd number of days it is not possible to set this up on the new controller. It does have some built in diagnostics and handles a master valve (MV). Not as good as the old model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer8136 Works well, a little differently then the Rainbird controller it replaced but I can read the display much better. Setup was easy.
Works well, a little differently then the Rainbird controller it replaced but I can read the display much better. Setup was easy and seemed very logical to follow the instructions after doing it once I became skilled at it. The larger display is a great benefit for those of us with older eyes.
