This has drained 3 sets of batteries in a week. Locked up on one of the zones and flooded my yard!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jewels Valves do not turn off = Water never shuts off. 2nd timer down with same problem.
Valves do not turn off. First timer had 2/4 of the valves that would not fully close when in the "off" position. Second timer had ALL 4/4 of the valves that would never turn off.
This means that the water was constantly on when it should be off. Just the same as leaving the hose running 24/7. What is the function of the timer then?
Could have led to a very high water bill had I not tried the units first. Very disappointed is an understatement. I had built an entire outdoor plumbing system built specifically for this exact unit. Now I have to search for a better manufacturer with a similar product, I suggest you do the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovemylawn Awesome timer!
This timer is amazing. It works like a charm. It is very easy to install and program. I was surprised to see that some reviews indicated problems. I did not have any problems at all and I use 3 different timers (16 zones).

I have had the same problem with the valves not opening. It's easy to program but doesn't work at all. It looks good but it is worthless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Let Barrera Excellent product features
I am a big fan of Melnor. I have the 2 and 4 station model. Amazing product, user friendly. I can go on vacation without being worried about my plants . My garden was never the same. I have recommended it to my friends and sure they were all happy with it. I just had a minor issue with one of the stations and got immediate action to my concern.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rwilliams 4 Zone sprinkler timer
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.

We seeded our lawn over Labor Day weekend and I thought these would work perfectly for making sure my entire lawn was watered. I bought one for each spigot. The display on the first one did not turn on, so I returned it. The second one's display worked, but one sprinklers would not turn off...it just ran and ran and ran. We purchased a third one hoping our first two were lemons, and incredibly that one had a totally different problem - the sprinklers would not turn on under any circumstance. So three timers, all with a different defect. Had they worked, they would be a great value. But since not one of them worked, I would say stay away.
