Answer: 
I should have a setting that says "run time" Set it for 30 minutes or however long you want it to be on. You can set this for both. It will run for how many minutes you select and then automatically shut off.
You can set each one for different run times if you want.

Answer: 
It sounds like you have only partially programmed the timer. The left knob on both sets of knobs is for how often you want to water - be it every few hours or every few days. The right knob on each set of two knobs is for how long you want the water to run from 1 minute to several hours or continually. You don't want to turn it to "on" if you want it to run for a certain period of time. Set it to one of Read More
It sounds like you have only partially programmed the timer. The left knob on both sets of knobs is for how often you want to water - be it every few hours or every few days. The right knob on each set of two knobs is for how long you want the water to run from 1 minute to several hours or continually. You don't want to turn it to "on" if you want it to run for a certain period of time. Set it to one of the numbers be it 1 minute or longer. Then it will not turn on until the proscribed start time is reached. If you set it at 6 PM today, it won't come on until 6 PM 24 hrs later if you have it set for 24 hr frequency. The on setting is if you want water right now and don't know how long you will need it - such as washing a car. Hope that this sheds some light on your problem. Read Less

I've bought this product less than a year ago. And it stopped working. I've replaced the batteries and it still doesn't work. The store told to contact the manufacturer but the packaging doesn't have any information about the it but the name Vigoro. And the packaging also says that it's distributed by Homedepot.

Answer: 
It appears that the manufacturer is Melnor. It's the identical packaging to the Vigoro packaging and the one I'm getting from EBay says Melnor rather than Vigoro. Product in picture on EBay is identical to the one I have from Vigoro also.

Answer: 
Dear Customer,
You will need to set Zone # 1 for the time you would like it to water. Then wait 30 minutes and then go back out and set Zone # 2 for the time you would like to water.
This is the only way to manipulate this older version.
We appreciate your support and business.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it will fail I bought this about 4 months ago and it worked fine. A couple weeks ago I noticed that the ground around the plants for this timer was saturated. The timer had failed with the valve stuck OPEN. I got my water bill last week and it went from around $120 to $175. I'll never buy another Vigoro product. The only reason I gave this one star is because I have to put in something. See attached pics. One shows the timer "off" the other shows the sprinkler watering. July 25, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What an utter piece of junk Took brand new unit out of the box and installed fresh batteries. Attached to faucet, set zone 1 to "on" and left zone 2 at "off". Zone 1 water came on as expected. About 5 minutes later zone 2 unexpectedly came on, and low battery light began flashing. I dismounted unit and opened battery compartment, to find it was completely flooded. True, the batteries are probably low now, after being shorted for 5 minutes. The valves appear to leak water directly into the battery compartment and electronics. If I put more batteries in, the value motors now just run continuously, opening and closing every few seconds. This was a brand new unit. What a piece of junk. June 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a dependable product I've given this product the benefit of the doubt for too long. It's priced reasonably, but I've lost more money using this product than what I think I saved. It works fine for little while but soon craps out. I've gone back to get another just because I thought it was a fluke. The last straw was when I got my recent water bill. This product died in the "on" position...while I was on vacation. $130 in water later, I come home to find my well watered lawn. Another limitation, which is bothersome, is the inability to time the next watering session using the current time. I cannot set the current time and set it for a particular future time. October 2, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! This is the fourth one I have purchased over the past years. It is the only one I have found that can program two different lines. Not having an exact time to program has not been a big problem, I just go out about the time of day I want one to run and set the timer, then go back at the time I want the other to run and it's done! I have learned, the hard way to not leave them out over winter, as the battery compartment will get wet and die. Granted, mine are placed horizontally in the garden, not vertically as it would probably prevent this. The line was already in place, and I have not dug it up to change the configuration. July 24, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Needs a clock I bought this two-zone timer so that I could water my garden and my lawn different amounts on different days. The lack of a clock - allowing you to set it to water at a specific time of day - is a major flaw in the design. If you want to water in the early predawn hours, which is when one should water in hot dry Denver, you need to be up at that hour to set it. That was annoying enough, but then, after a very early morning spent setting it, the unit short circuited after our first rain (my spigot is up against the house but not fully sheltered). You will be much better off buying two $20 single-zone programmable timers with clocks than wasting $40 on this disappointing and inferior product. July 1, 2010
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for a couple of years - then quit I bought the predecessor to this (Model 682CT) a couple of years ago. The first couple of years it worked fantastically and I had nothing but good to say about it. This season it won't work properly. It only does rapid cycling of the water for either of the timers. Regardless of the setting I use, it turns the water on...a few seconds later turns it off...then on...then off, etc. I've tried new batteries but the behavior never changes...other than when it chooses to do nothing at all! Maybe this problem is solved in this new model...I'm just not willing to spend $40 to find out. June 4, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great and EASY to use I use this handy little timer for my drip irrigation system. It made it possible to have a drip system with out tapping into my main waterline. I have one timer set to water shrubs that take more steady, regular water and the other to water trees less often but more deeply. What i like the most is that its very easy to set. Other timers i have used require you to set the date, time, time zone, zip code firlst childs middle name...ect. I just want to set a timer to come on when i want it to, and shut off when i want it to. This one does it. its reliable and easy to use. simple. I like simple. I have hard water in my area so it gets mineral build up and causes them to last about a season before needing replaced. but thats no fault of the product September 28, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Timer I needed a timer for a trip I was taking so my veggie garden could get watered. The timer works well. I can use it manually or put it on automatic. The only bad thing is the price. I thought it was a little steep since you can't program it for an exact time. I did like the fact that I could use 2 different hoses with different time schedules. One other small problem is that it drips water where it connects to the faucet. I did use the supplied washer but it still has a small constant drip. July 19, 2010
