Customer Questions & Answers

How do you program this device? I program it and it starts but won't automatically shut off

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Who honors the warranty for this product?

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.
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

How do you set one zone at a certain time & set the other zone 30 minutes later

I loss the instructions to my timer which is the same as this one
Asked by: Carm
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.

2-Zone Water Timer-DISCONTINUED is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money My wife and I bought two of these last year (2010). The units worked very well....for one year. This year, I installed new batteries and tested the units - neither worked. On one of the units, one of the valves is stuck open. I hear the motor running to close the valve, but nothing happens other than a periodic click. Either the valve is stuck open, or the "brains" in the thing is confused and is trying to open the valve rather than close it. After a few seconds, the motor stops and the low battery light flashes. The batteries are good (I even tried another set of new ones), I think the flashing indicates an error. On the other unit, neither valve is open, but both motors run. Again I hear the periodic clicking, but nothing happens. After a few seconds, the motors stop and the low battery light flashes (error). For $40 ($80 total), I expected something that was going to last more than one summer. I even covered the units last summer to protect them from the elements because I wanted them to last - obviously a waste of time. Additionally, the units are sealed, so you can't get into them to clean them without destroying them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only worked one season Purchased summer 2010 and not working as of spring 2011. The low battery light blinking even when install fresh batteries. Tried different fresh store-bought batteries and still the battery light blinks. Valve froze in the open position. Else, very intuitive all-in-one design. Why can't products just work? Very frustrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality product Failed right out of the box. Valves cycled constantly and Low Battery light flashed with brand new batteries. Taking it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy This is the second Vigoro two zone timer that I have bought within a year and they both have done the same thing. They start leaking from the valves. It seems that after a very short period of time the valves do not shut down completely. Needless to say this will be the last Vigoro product that I buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad timer This timer works well in warm sunny weather, but any adverse weather will cause breakage. Its a ripoff. Poor construction, eats batteries!
