Customer Questions & Answers

wont shut off 3 weeks old

Had for 3 weeks and now it wont shut off. What to do Mike
Asked by: mike
Replace it. I had the same problem and the only solution was taking the battery out to get it to stop. But my hose bib leaked when it was open and constantly dripped on my water timer since it was attached to a 4 way splitter instead of the bib directly.

An image of a battery is showing on the bottom of the screen

I have looked at the instruction manual and can't find this icon or what it means. It is not blinking.

The timer provides battery status. This could be what you're seeing.

Timer is leaking at top attachment

Our timer is leaking heavily from the top hose attachment, where the U-shaped clip holds the timer to the spigot attachment. The problem seems to be the clip, which can't stay in place and seems to be not holding solidly under water pressure. This has occurred since the first few days if purchasing this timer. What can we do about this? Is there another attachment we can use to fasten this timer to the spigot? The timer is working, it's the U-clip that seems to be failing. I know there are better spigot attachments.. What works with this timer?
Asked by: VailYeti
I bought this timer last week. Installed it and it had a very slow leak coming from the top connector which connects to the host bibb. The leak was actually not coming from the connection between the host bibb and the timer connector. The timer connector has two parts: the upper part with the concave recesses for your fingers to hold and turn to tighten and there's the bottom half where there is like a C-collar. It leaks in between these two parts. Actually, this C-collar is a quick disconnect. If you gently pull the C-collar apart, the bottom timer housing can be disconnected. By pushing the timer housing back up into the quick disconnect connector for a solid fit, it quit leaking. The other possibilities is that yours is defective. But, you may want to double check your water pressure at the host bibb with a gauge. The timer is rated for up to 80psi only. I hope this helps.

Bought it 2months ago, it was working well. Now there's no water dripping. I cleaned the washer & checked the battery.

For starters, the fact that it runs on 9 volts is very nice. I usually use it more during the fall when overseeding my lawn. But it really shines when compared to some of the other hose end timers. This timer has four individual starts not three like some of the orbit or melnor timers. It also lets you customize the start times completely, not requiring a dedicated interval between them. I could set it to run at 8 AM, 11 AM, 4 PM, and 6 PM. But there are a couple of issues. For starters, the run time is consistent across all four watering times. It would be nice if I can vary how long the timer waters at each watering time. Also, I had one that didn't stop watering within a month of use. But the other two are still running perfectly. Did I mention, it has a quick connect fitting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Nice looking unit and easy to program but quality is very poor. Bought the first one last year and it was a failure out of the box. With the battery in, the unit was programmed and appeared to work but the valve did not open. Called factory tech support and he quickly admitted they were having problems with the units and recommend I take it back and exchange for another. Second unit worked a few weeks last summer and spent the winter in storage in the garage. Put it in service recently and it lasted about a week. Same issues: Clock and timer appear to work but the valve never opens. With 2 units I have had both the 1st and last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy breezy The cover keeps the sun off of the clock face.our old one did not have that feature and fried. Which is why we had to buy a new one. Easy to set and works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last 1 year The product is really easy to setup and when it is working it does its job as expected. The functionality which made me buy it was the option to have multiple start times in the selected operational days and so it delivered while it was working. My problem with this product is it has not even least 1 year and it is no longer working. Even though it offers 3 years warranty, when I went back to Home Depot to have it replaced I was informed the warranty is provided by the manufacturer so I should contact them and guess what, the manufacturer does not offer a line of communication to talk about warranty exchange. I'm still trying but not sure what is going to be outcome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't believe Melnor buys this Chinese-made cr@p as their own and Home Depot sells it This hose timer died on me in less than 2 years. I take all my timers in each winter before it freezes (which is a low of 28 degrees locally). After the last frost, I put them back out. I replace the batteries yearly. I typically use them from April to Oct / Nov, depending on when our California rainy season begins -- hoping that it does! In other words, I take care of them. This spring when I put this one back out, the screen remained blank. Oh! I thought. Bad battery! But no! A brand new battery of the wrapper still didn't work.I wish I'd kept the proof of purchase so I could exercise the warranty and get my money back. What cr@p!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke after two weeks. Had to return. Maybe the one that I got was the exception. I actually like pretty much everything about this timer, right up until it quit. Other than that, I would give it 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Versatile, Expensive and has Durability and Performance Issues We have used the 9001 model for about (8) years and have (18) Zones on our property. The programming features are great, ease of programming is good and allows for flexibility, installation is easy and straightforward for the price point. However, The quality in our first years of using the product was far better than later production lots over the last few years. Problems we experience are, water leaks into the control case thus making the unit inoperable, buttons will stop functioning making the unit inoperable, the valve solenoid is not powerful enough to open and close the valve over repeated uses and will stick in the "ON" or "OFF" position with no warning. We will see how the new DIG model replacement fares and see if DIG took advantage with their new model to get rid of some of the old bugs and improve the overall quality. I hope so.
