I like this product overall. I most like the manual knobs.
One thing I don't like about timer is you cant set for a specific day. It does not have a weekly layout just only how often do you want to water. So if you say every other day then the day you set you would have to write it down and keep track because each week will be a different day. If this timer was like most and had M-F you could select what day and know for sure what days your watering.
If you find that water comes out of zone while turned on during installation like it did me just pull battery out of unit for about a minute. This will reset system and now it will work properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bunny We have used our Melnor 4 zone for a year and a half and bought a second one for 4 different zones for 2016. I love these and they work great. I broke the older one and contacted 'customer service' and they replaced it with a new one with in one week. Boy was I surprised and thrilled. Would recommend these to everyone. Sorry to the people having trouble, have you contacted customer service?

Had this for one season. Worked fine. Two thumbs up. Then I set it up the second year and none of the ports would open. I called Melnor cust service. They replaced for free because it had a seven year warranty. No questions asked. I received it and hooked it up. It worked for one week before two ports have become stuck open and will not close. I have done all of the trouble shooting per Melnor but this timer won't work either. I have a buddy that has one and he's on his second season with his and no troubles. I'll change to a different timer next purchase. This one is the cheapest at $39 but it isn't reliable.

I never write reviews but I read tons of people complaining! I want to say I have four of these products and love them. Saved me so much time and energy moving sprinklers around. Had one problem with a battery issue and contacted Customer Service, they fix the issue in less than four days! I love this product!

I am so tired of constantly returning products because they turn out to be nothing but junk. It worked great for the first three; count them first three weeks and then like everything else you buy in this country it stops working. Regardless of how often I put in brand new batteries and it was often I constantly got a "low" battery sign, the screen would freeze up and then I would have to program it all over again, or the screen would just blank out. The only person I would reccommend this product to would be my worst enemy and even then I would think twice. Thank god I saved my receipt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marvin Great idea, terrible implementation
I bought this timer for use during our annual beach trip. The timer setup was a bit awkward, but I eventually got all zones programed. All seemed well at that point. However, later that day when I returned to make a change in the program, the device began flashing "8's" in all the time fields. It also returned to the default time-of-day setting. This was a disaster! With no time left to return it or call the manufacturer, I left the unit in place. On returning home the device was still sitting there flashing crazy "8's" like some sort of video game. As far as I'm concerned, this device is not ready for prime time and needs further field testing- but not at my expense!
