Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noel Aqua timer by Melnor
This item is very easy to hook up, once you gather all the pieces. I bought the timer from Home Depot, but bought about 80% of the remaining parts from my nurseryman. Even thought this seems like a over kill for a home Gardner, it saves me a ton of time! I was spending about 2 hours watering my plants ( about 75 hanging baskets and numerous pot plants. Another item, we, in San Antonio, are in a water conversation mode. With the Aqua Timer, it waters for a preset time and length of watering. I now have it set for 5 minutes once per day! This saves a lot of water!

I've had three of these timers over the past three years. Each has worked well during the summer purchased to water my small garden. Each unit work fine when disconnected in the fall but failed to function after winter storage (batteries removed and stored inside). The on/off valve won't work and water comes out from every hole and seam. The company did replace my unit last year. I'm asking for yet another replacement. I will use them as long as they will send them to me but I'll never buy another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Badger Got 2 of these & no problems
I have two of these, 1 that's a year old and another I bought 3 months ago. I use them to run a micro sprinkler/drip system. Both have been great and I have not had any issues with them. One note: Make sure you get a pressure regulator and install it before the timer (I have a 25 psi one) as I believe that's why mine haven't leaked/failed. Also, I made sure I brought this in for the winter to avoid any freeze damage.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dc Good timer bad workmanship
I have had 2 of these timers and used them one season. This is my second season. I was using just one this year. The plastic below the connector just snapped. It is unusable so I am now using the second one. I am hoping to get through the season with it. It worked well for me because I travel for a living and have lots of raised vegetable beds. But the quality of the plastic or the design of the connector is not good. I would have expected it to last longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LawnGirl Easy to use automatic timer
I bought several of these timers to help water my front and back yard and have been really pleased with them! They were easy to setup and easy to install. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for automatic timers for their hoses (sprinklers).
Once piece of advice - I bought this version and not the "double" one because for less money you can by a splitter and hook that up to your faucet. It does the same thing as the "double" timer but is way cheaper.

I like this product. It allows me to begin watering my lawn even before I wake up in the morning. I can set it to water as often as I choose and for as long as I choose. Also, the watering can be delayed by a day or two as needed due to rain. So that I could also use my outdoor faucet for jobs that don't need a hose, I simply attached a Y-splitter to the bottom end of the timer. I then attached the hose to one side of the splitter, leaving the other side open. Adding minutes to the timer with the "manual" button will turn on the water flow adjusting the splitter's levers will shift the direction of the flow to the open side.
