Could you install a Y connector after the timer ? Im trying to install a soaker hose system around my foundation and would rather meet two ends at the drive way than tunnel under if possible.
Asked by: hosed
Yes. Multiple Y or Tee connections should work just fine.

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

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.
Asked by: mzsuzq
If the battery icon is black it is showing the level of charge, if completely grey you need to replace it.

It has all the features I wanted but the cheap-feeling connector to the hose bibb foreshadowed the failure-to-come. It worked wonderfully for 2.5 days to run two small sprinkers (via a Y) to keep about 20 pieces of sod moist. When I got home tonight I saw water running out our french drain into the street so went into the backyard and the timer assembly was laying on the ground, separated from the threaded collar (still attached to the hose bibb) with water spewing onto the patio and into the drain. I don't know how long it ran like that but my best guess is 25 minutes based on a 5:30pm start time and I got home at 5:55pm. I'm thankful it didn't pop off for the first run at 8am and have the water run for 10 hours. There's just a plastic clip holding the timer to the threaded collar and somehow it popped loose or doesn't have enough bite in the timer's neck allowing it to push free and let the faucet free-run. The faucet valve was only opened maybe a third of the way so it was seeing maybe 25 psi. If I can't trust it to stay attached then I can't trust it at all and it has no value to me. I don't know if wrapping the collar in duct tape will work to keep it together. Great timer other than the cheap design shortcut taken for the hose bibb attachment.

I have used the previous version of this product for over 6 years with no problems. Battery life is longer than advertised as they only need replacing every 2 years. The new version appears to be virtually the same except the upper hose connection looks more rugged. Easy to program. I have two of these connected to rain barrels and one connected to house water supply. I added pressure compensation, a filter, and a back flow preventing check valve to the house system. They were just installed so I have no history with the new version. No leaks so far and they are working as expected. I did try a re-branded and slightly cheaper version of the original DIG timer and observed leakage below the hose connection even with just a rain barrel. I returned it and got the DIG's for just a few bucks more. So I would stick with the DIG brand.

I have two older ones that have lasted for several years. I recently purchased some new ones which also work just fine. However, these timers must be used with relatively high pressure water sources such as a house water supply as the valve will not fully open unless there is enough water pressure. Unfortunately, the specifications listed in the HD website do not provide this information. So be aware of this limitation on their use. They will not work very well, if at all, in rain barrel applications.

Don't know yet about battery usage. My only complaint is there are only 4 watering periods. Would like to have six or eight. It would be a simple matter to add at least two more watering periods, since it's a matter of software. 4 periods doesn't quite handle my requirements in the summer in southern Nevada. My bonsai trees need to be kept moist. So, I had to buy two of these.

Very easy to program, I programed in less than 5 minutes , very ease to read. I had only for a short time but if it continues to work like it is now I will be extremely happy with it. The only down fall is that the length of watering time is the same on each setting. It would have been nice to be able to lengthen or shorten the water time. I do like it enough that I purchased 2 one for my garden and one for my green house.

They have only been functional for a month so I have no longevity data. They are plastic and will have to be removed completely in the winter but they come off quite easily. They are getting a 4 rating because the quality of the plastic is suspect and I don't see them as being totally weather proof. I would buy again at this point.

Removed the battery and the timer for the winter in December. Set up the timer with a new battery on 5/11/2017. Pressing the Mode button as directed to reset the timer but it was inoperative so could not reset to this year's summer watering schedule. Tried two new 9v batteries w/o results. No way to reset or get this timer working again.

Two things I would change on it: 1) the battery cover feels like it is going to break when I try to open it. I suspect that it doesn't have a push clip to keep water out for sure; 2) wished it had water "every other day" "every 3rd day" on it plus the days of the week. It worked great while we were gone!! I have four of them and one more to setup somewhere else.
