Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raoul Favorite water timer
I bought 5 of these last year (2015) since I have a large garden. Brought them in before frost and put them back out this year. They all work great. I like the highly readable screen and they work better than other brands I've tried in the past.

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!

Not compliant with ca regulations. Watering is only allowed on specific days. This device does not allow that

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AvidGardener Three Strikes and You're out
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 2.0 out of 5.0 by BobH Shut off valve sticks
I have 5 3015's in operation; all of them are enclosed in water valve housings for protection from sun and cold. They work very well until they die. Unfortunately, over the last 5 years, I have had to replace 3 of the 5 because they quit turning on; apparently the shut off valve sticks. The shut off valve itself is encased in a plastic housing that cannot be opened for cleaning. Number 4 just died which is why I am writing this review and giving them a 2-star rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 Too busy to water but this does it for me
I have been so busy that I haven't been watering my mulch bins and they are not composting. This hose timer waters them for me. I don't have to turn the water on or remember to turn it off. I can tell that they are now composting by the reduction of the size of the mounds. You also don't have to use it exclusively on the faucet.
I have been looking at the twist knob units that you turn the dial (like a kitchen timer) to set the length of time that you want to water, but you still have to remember turn the water on. They are a third to half the price of this unit, but this unit well worth it
What is nice too is that you don't have to fight to get the packaging open. Just pull top apart and the rest just falls open. You could even reuse the packaging to store the unit in the winter.

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.
