Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
I have 2 water bills one is $981.21 and the second $886.94 These units are a problem because they can fail in the open position.
Either throw the unit away, bring it back to the store and send an email to DIG in Vista, Calif

Answer: 
The answer did not address the question asked. Would not shut off in 15 minutes even after pushing
the stop button. Do I bring it back to get another unit, is it guaranteed . Why does Home Depot not
supply an answer or DIG supply an answer. The ticked is 013158332973 purchased on 8/26/15. Have
had other units like over the past 5 to 10 yrs.and they all have worked. Mike

Timer is leaking at top attachment

This question is from Digital Hose Thread Watering Timer
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
April 13, 2016
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?

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. Read Less

Digital Hose Thread Watering Timer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after one year This timer was purchased after a different timer from Home Depot failed in less than a month. It worked well for about four months during the first summer. However, by the next spring the display was defective and would not show AM or PM, among other defects (the timer was stored in a heated garage during the winter). Despite the difficulty the defective display caused, the unit worked OK for a couple more months until the valve failed and would not shut off. Luckily, disaster was avoided as I was around to turn off the water after it ran for only a couple of hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Garbage Avoid anything and everything sold by this worthless company. Purchased the drip irrigation kit, 1 in 3 drippers were bad, half the parts were defective, broken or failed shortly after install and needed to be replaced. I have since had to replace them again (less than 6 months). This timer is just as worthless as any of their other products, have had to replace it once already and has failed again. All products sold by this company are hands down the worst quality products sold by Home Depot. Home Depot please stop selling this garbage and find a different vendor!

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 Won' t shut off For those of us that don't have an expensive underground multi zone lawn sprinkler system the idea of having a unit like this where I can regularly water specific areas is great. I have two of these timers providing to flower beds on opposite sides of the driveway. Its great not having to break out 50 feet of hose every other day to keep them from dying off. I have an older version that is about 8 years old and other than a leak here or there it has worked great. The newer version is in its third season and has now failed in the open position like many of the reviews I have seen here. I replaced the battery and it seemed to hold for a few hours but the next morning I discovered it was about 3 hours into its 10 minute cycle and I had to cut the water off. I guess I will go back to setting a manual timer to make sure I don't end up with a huge water bill.

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 2 out of 5 by from Does not last Bought this to replace an old orbit timer that lasted 5 years. I use it about 5 months per year. This one lasted one season removed it for the winter and it lasted about 2 weeks. Save your money and try another brand.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great timer, good value. I've had other brand timers, but this one sets up easily and works like it is supposed. It's been on the job for about 6 weeks working without any problems.
