If you live in an area where water is scarce (we haul water in Northern Arizona) then every drop counts. Several times a year, some of us go to fill our stock tanks for the horses, then we get sidetracked, and hours later we return to a flooded corral, an empty cistern, and a loss of a full day hauling water to replenish the cistern.
This simple mechanical timer will resolve the problem. I tried it and it works! Fifteen minutes go by and I don't have to fret if I forget to turn off the hose bib. It's off! Of course, we get COLD here in winter, so we learn to drain the hose afterwards, before the night frost gets it, and this timer MUST be taken indoors so it won't freeze and break.
It really has saved the day. My neighbor, who is equally guilty of letting the water run, will be getting one of these as a Christmas present.
