Answer: 
yes, the unit has a typical ball valve that is motorized and requires no water pressure to work so it would work on your gravity fed unit

Does this timer have a specific direction of flow? Does it have to be installed with the female connector nearest the faucet/water source?

This question is from Blue Stripe Drip Battery-Operated Hose-End Timer
Asked by
Waterboy

In order to orient the timer upright on our pipe, it had to be installed with the male connector toward the water source. The water doesn't fully shut off after the watering time and continues to dribble. Do you think it is an internal failure or does it have anything to do with the direction of water flow through the timer?

Answer: 
Yes, the female connector should be attached to the outdoor faucet or hose bib. Attaching it at the male end is likely the reason for the leak you are experiencing.

Answer: 
Hello this is Tangelo from the Home Depot Community!
2 possible causes for the leak, the washer needs to be changed, or the supply pipe is not perfectly round. Start with replacing the washer, if that doesn't help try adding some Teflon tape around the threads.
I hope this helps, if you have any more questions you can find me on our website at community.homedepot.com

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great when they work I ordered two of these units. I took several days of working with one before it started operating properly. The other one ran constantly even when the thing was in the off position. I took it back to home depot with no problem. I don't have much confidence that the other will continue to operate correctly when I an not around to check it everyday. I will try another brand. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by toro saved kids garden club The Mohave County Master Gardeners are sponsoring and teaching an after school garden club at Cerbat elementary school in Kingman, Az. We needed to find a way to automatically water the students plants, they had planted in buckets, because the planting area was off limits during regular school hours. There is no water source we could connect to on a permanent basis. We tried several types of timers connected to a 55 gallon water drum. None would work. We thought we would have to cancel and disappoint all 25, 4th and 5th graders. Then we tried the Toro, Battery Operated Hose-End Timer (Blue Strip Drip, model 53746). It works like a charm. From the moment we attached it, the plants received water from the drip system. It has been in service for 4 weeks with no problems whatsoever. It was scheduled to be delivered in 10 days however we received the unit in 4 days. We are extremely pleased with the operation of this unit and the service we received from Home Depot. Thank you Toro for the great product. October 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Set timer in house and then install it I like this timer because it serves 2 basic purposes. You can use it as a timer for a garden hose or for a drip system. I needed to design a drip line system but did not finish the design or buy all the parts. Memorial Day weekend is here and I will be away. We needed plants watered. I inserted 2 AA batteries and then waited for the start time. The next day at 5 AM, while in the house, set the frequency to 24 hours and the duration for 20 minutes. Now it was all set to go as soon as I installed it. I bought a brass manifold with a 4 hose hookup. Then attached the manifold to my hose bib. I used some Teflon tape on the male threads and then attached the garden hose. Since I had already tested the spray pattern on the watering end of the garden hose and determined where to locate the spray head, I was all set to use it. I took a picture and sent it to a neighbor and my daughter to solve their watering problem. Lou81 May 28, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bye bye Toro... I bought this timer, it worked fine for one season, then not. It stopped working, and sounded like something was caught in the gears and would make a lot of noise and not work. All the pieces are plastic, and the plastic thread looked like it started to get threaded. When I took the timer off the spigot, and shook it, it sounded like there was a piece of plastic that broke off inside. I tried calling Toro customer service, which as a complete joke. I literally could not get someone on the phone. That is the last time I buy anything from Toro. I bought 2 timers (electronic panels) from a different company and so far have been very happy. Although those timers are also all plastic, the hose thread is brass which feels more substantial. Bye bye Toro... July 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a reliable Timer I purchased 3 of these from Home Depot in March 2014 and had to return all of them over a 5 week period due to the timer failing to open. What happens is when it is supposed to open you just hear a clacking sound and it just does not open or just as bad it opens and then will not close while still making the same sound. We had a flood in the greenhouse with one and we had a week later another that failed to open but at least we caught it before everything dried up. The 3 rd one out of the package failed the first time it was to open. All of these had new out of the package batteries so spare yourself the grief and get something else. July 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaks I bought many of these over the years. They generally last about a year in the Arizona heat. Sometimes the timer quits working, other times the mechanism inside won't allow the water to flow out. This was the first time I had this problem, though. I securely installed it on the faucet and set the timer. After it ran the first time, I went out to check the back yard. There was a puddle underneath it. I decided to turn it on and got soaked. It was leaking between the two pieces of the unit - not from the hose connections. I'm returning it today, and will check into other hose timers in the store. October 23, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great with my misting system in my back porch My back porch has a faucet, so it was very easy to connect the timer and to set it to go off every hour. My back porch is totally shaded, but very open, so the device is in 24 hour shade. I use it every day, every hour during the day, to turn on my misting system to keep my dogs cool during this hot summer (in TX). If you do a zoom in on the timer, it is super easy to connect to the water, and super easy to set the frequency and duration of when it is supposed to turn on. Also, it was easy to put in the batteries. Hope this helps. June 28, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Set it and forget it !! This is actually a very good unit. Batteries last all summer long. Keeps my grass looking green and healthy with minimal effort. The only problem is this: The plastic part that screws on to your faucet becomes brittle over time. Every year, I take the unit off for winter and each year the black plastic breaks off. I will be purchasing my 3rd unit in 3 years. If they made that piece out of a stronger material this unit would be a perfect 5 stars. Due to it breaking every year, this unit, in my opinion only rates 3 stars. May 15, 2006
