Customer Reviews

Solar Powered Irrigation Timer with Actuator is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Barely needs any light I was very concerned that the lack of light because of the shorter days would affect the performance of this system but no problem. Our garden is pretty far away from the house so I dreaded having to drag an extension cord that far so I was glad that it was solar. And it even automatically adjusts for the season changes. It has more features then I really need but setting it is a snap because it has presets for my region. No more watering to much or to little that will ruin valuable crops. Going to get another one for the yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sprinkler Timer What makes this timer an excellent product is the fact that it is solar. You don't have to worry about changing batteries or cumbersome wires hooked put to a timer. Everything is rolled up into one item. Plus it' easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pool Filler It's an amazing product. I use it in my pool equipment. I replaced the manual water release handle and installed the DIG. I just set it and forget it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for our drip Irrigation system. Got this really late in the season but I just had to hook it up in the system before I drained it for the season. :) With both of us working, free time is at a premium and this timer will be fantastic for us and our mist/drip irrigation system for my wife's flower beds. It has programmable run times from 1 minute to 5 hours and 59 minutes in 1 minute increments and since it solar, no backup battery or AC power necessary making placement flexible and inexpensive to operate. It can be ran in manual mode when desired also, and for the auto mode, programming is super easy. Now to drain the system for winter but I know we will be ready to go with a great timer for the next irrigation season :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time or money on this product I've used this product off and on for over three years. I have had problems with the valve not working at all and not turning off. I have contacted Dig to replace the valve under warranty and I am still having problems. I bought 3 of these timers and all of them are the same results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great time and effort saver We have a front and a backyard that needs lots of time and effort to water. We were looking for a solution which is automated and maintenance free. ECO1 fulfills both of these requirements. We have used it for only 3 weeks now and loving it. Installation went smooth and after few adjustments as per our needs and few tweaks over 2 days, we have it working like a charm. We love the product and concept. It works as advertised in ambient light, Great product :-) •1x - Rain sensor connection •1x - Instruction manual

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. The instructions are difficult to understand and it took several tries to get the device set up properly. On previous battery operated systems there was information in the window at all times. No so, which once understood help solve some issues. The system apparently goes to sleep and you wake it up by pressing on any button!. Once everything was understood, the system operated perfectly.
