Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffrey quick and easy setup with standard hose, also compatible with rain sensor from Rain Bird RSD.
The product does quickly and easily setup with standard hose without applying pipe cement, but using Teflon tap is a more preferable method to tighten the fittings, further more, it also compatible with Rain Bird RSD (rain sensor).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim A great option to regular hard wired valves---What I was looking for
No need to run wires from a panel, no digging a trench to run wires in, you don't have to remember which colored wire services which valve. Replace your valves with this when your old ones burn out. The only drawback is the color, they only come in black. The hot Arizona sun really heats them up and white would reduce that problem. I'm surprised that DIG hasn't considered this since they are based in Cali.

I bought this timer and valve to irrigate my small garden. After the first irrigation cycle, I had water running all over. It was the anti-syphon valve leaking. I elevated the valve on 8 inch risers to decrease the amount of back pressure. Still no luck. After inspecting the anti-siphon mechanism, I found it was a piece of flimsy plastic with a cheap rubber seal. Bad design and cheap parts.

Easy to install. Great idea and product. Allows me to irrigate an area that would have been terribly expensive, and perhaps impossible to irrigate without it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howie Great Product!
I have four of these installed so far and there will be more! The first has been performing flawlessly for almost three years now. Its not the cheapest valve on the shelf, but if you are looking for an alternative to the traditional wired control this is good choice.
Simple, clean installation.
Put it anywhere.
No wiring hassle.
I've placed all of mine below grade by cutting a small round hole in the lid of an irrigation box and mounting the control head on top.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pegleg on my 2nd unit - totally satisfied
I have not had any of the grief described at all in the lower rated reviews. I am on my 2nd one because the first one started to leak after 3 years in the hot AZ sun. (The 2nd one I installed in the shade, since it only requires ambient light to charge.)
I have zero complaints about this model, and love hove seriously programmable it is, I mean there are so many options, it would take an entire year to test them all. I love this unit and highly recommend it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AZboyinWI I don't recommend this one
I had the battery (9 volt style- no longer offered) installed previously for about 1 year on my irrigation system, when the solenoid on the valve quit working. I wanted to replace it with a solar one, as it would be too much trouble to run power to the location. In my local area all I could find were the solar ones with the back flow preventer. I was very hesitant about purchasing this style model but went ahead with the purchase, as my time was short for leaving AZ. for the summer. As soon as I installed this, I hated it! As the back flo preventer wasted more water than I thought was necessary for safety reasons. I arrived back home in AZ. last fall to find this valve not shutting off completely. I have since ripped this model out and went with an Orbit battery one which, I hope I have better luck with. The Orbit unit seems much more quality construction than either of the Dig units I have used in the past.. Great Idea! just poor quality.

Product was easy to install if you read and follow instructions carefully. Just the right Timer for a small back yard garden. Have had no issues with the System.
