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.

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. As long as you have sufficient water pressure to get adequate water flow it should be no problem. I have a Y-connector hooked up to mine to split it into two different parts of my yard and it has worked fine.

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.

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.

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 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.
