Product Overview

This indoor-mounted timer is so easy to use you can forget the instructions. Its intuitive zone-by-zone scheduling allows you to set watering times differently for each area of the yard, providing greener results with less water. By turning the dial to each zone, you can easily set more or less watering for full sun and shaded areas, or water slopes and clay soils in short intervals to allow water to soak in, avoiding runoff. You can also set different timing and frequency of pop-up sprays vs. rotor zones and customize watering of trees and landscaped areas in Drip zones. Each zone's setting can be reviewed easily in one view with a turn of the dial.

Can this Controller operate at least 3 valves (Stations) at the exact same time? Do you know of any that can?

Asked by: Dennis
I believe it runs only 1 zone at a time.

Can I set the zones for different days and times of day?

I would like to set up the system so that each zone can be operated independently of the others. For example: if zone 1 and 3 are a drip line system in a flower bed can I set it up to operate on different days and times from zones 2, 4, and 5? Or, are all zones either on or off on the same days but with adjustable times of operation? Is it all or none? or can I set up a plan specific to each zone?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, very customizable. You can have multiple programs, on days you don't want a zone to run you can set that zone to zero minutes.

I installed it at one house, then I moved and bought one for my new house. Perfect if you want to run just 1 zone, i.e. you have a dry patch but don't need to run all zones. Or, for winterization you can quick select zone to run.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few tricks to make programming even easier Very easy to install and program, but the manual isn't clear on a few things. 1) You should set all the zones to start at the same time if you want them to run in sequence. This way you can easily use the seasonal adjustment to run longer or shorter. 2) If you want to run twice per day, you DO have some control over the interval. Current options are +1, +2, +3, +4, +6, +9, +12. You just push the 2 times per day button to cycle through the options. There isn't a battery backup, but the unit holds its programming during a power failure, although the clock will need resetting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Timer - But Not Perfect I really love this timer. The programming functions are so easy that a child could do it. I have two complaints though: 1) There is a button to "Run All Zones". I only wish this button ran the zones that are programmed. One of my zones isn't programmed to run daily (like the rest). I use this zone only on an ad-hoc need. So when I press "Run All Zones", I wish it would only run the zones that are turned on/active. 2) My second complaint is about the additional watering times. I wish these could truly be based on a time of day and not offset hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple to operate, but quite limited capability I have long-preferred using Rain Bird valves and sprinkler heads because of their reliability, so buying this Rain Bird controller seemed like a no-brainer. I can't speak for the reliability since I just installed and programmed it. It is very easy to set up; the plethora of buttons mean there are little or no settings buried in menus. That's the good news. The not-so-good news is that this controller has some pretty limited functionality. Examples: 1. If you have one area that you want to water manually (I just sewed some grass seed and want to hit a particular zone manually on the really hot/dry days), it's easy to select that zone and turn it on for a given duration. But, you have to hang around and wait for it to finish, and then turn the knob back to auto. If you turn the knob back to auto right away, it shuts the manually-operated valve off immediately. If you leave the control knob set to the chosen zone, it won't run the auto program and if you forget to put it back, non of your zones will operate. It's as if you turned the whole unit off. So if you're on your way out the door to go to work or to the store and just wanted to hit one zone, you're really inconvenienced by having to wait around until the zone finishes. 2, You can't assign zones to a group, and start them at a specific time, with individual times for each zone. All you can do is program each zone individually. You need to keep track how long each one is running to program the next zone accordingly. You could program all the zones at the same time, and the unit is smart enough to run each zone individually, in sequence, but being able to set a group start time and just assign zones to that group would be much easier. 3. The rain delay is global; it affects all zones. Since you can't assign zones to groups, you can't choose a different rain delay option for one group vs another. In all, this is not a bad timer, but I expected more. Given the limitations of this unit compared to the 20-year old Motorola unit I just replaced, I have to say the Motorola unit had much more capability that I used often, although it was a little klunkier to program.
