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

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

Blue Stripe Drip Battery-Operated Hose-End Timer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not last bought one of these a few years ago and it quit working properly after a few months. It will not turn on consistently. It turns on when the faucet is off. Turn the faucet on, adding pressure to the unit and forget it. Poor quality for a gadget that costs $30 - $40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work for gravity feed These work great off a 0 press gravity feed system....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasts 2 seasons This is a simple, very easy to use product. Unfortunately, it only lasts 2 seasons. I have had one fail where the plastic material inside the faucet connector became brittle and broke. The second unit developed pinhole leaks at the faucet connector. I've used Orbit, Melnor, Gilmor and Toro hose timers. Toro's durability is the worst of the group. Orbit units have a similiar problem to Toro, but their customer service is outstanding. They have replaced cracked units out of warrant for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & Easy to set Pro: Easy programming, one dial sets the frequency for watering and the other dial sets the duration. Water inlet is standard 3/4 garden hose connection as well as the outlet. I run well water through it with no problems. Con: The only drawback I could find is with the duration timer. It has settings for 1, 3, 10 etc min. They skipped the 5 min setting which I could have used, no biggie but would have been nice. I'll probably buy another one of these, we like this unit better than the LED display units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This timer is so easy to program, and with the preset settings you have as much detailed watering as you need. Another thing I'm thankful for is ease of access to the battery compartment. Some of the timers I have I have you have to remove three of four screws to put in new batteries, this one has one out and one in, and you are in business.
