Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck of the green thumb Love this timer
Bought this timed to use with a in line watering system and it was perfect for my needs works great and saves me time and money and water. For a win win win. I live in Florida so it sees year round use and going strong on its 4th year.

I bought it to control a manual sprinkler system in my front yard and a rotating sprayer in the back yard. It does not let enough water through to create pressure needed to operate either one. I will be returning the product.

Works great. A lot of flexibility. Just make sure your battery terminals are very clean, or the unit will reset and lose the time. Also, take it in the winter.

Bought this and loved it! Easy to program and operate. Offers an easy-to-use rain day setting (you push a button), easy-to-access settings, and you can see exactly what you've selected. Set mine up with soaker hoses on line 1, regular manual hose on line 2. You can also set two hoses with different watering schedules. Two timers, various settings, and digital display so you can see the timer settings easily. Bought an Orbit model which was a piece of trash and more expensive. This is a good, reliable model. Would highly recommend to the average home owner.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Lasts about 1.5 seasons
I've owned three of these in total, two of which no longer work. The first I bought lasted about one year, then started leaking and would never turn off completely (which is bad when on vacation, etc). After this broke, against my better judgement bought two more (one for the front yard, one for the back). One of these two lasted 1.5 seasons, then this morning when it was supposed to turn on, I heard our water flow for about one second then back off. I suspected the batteries had run out, but they haven't (it still indicates they are "OK" and it still responds to pressing the buttons, etc) and when I try to turn it on manually nothing happens (it says manual mode is on, but internally nothing happens). The second one is still working, but it's very annoying that you can't trust that they will actually turn on (or off).

Melnor has a newer model that essentially does that same, but costs 50% more, and doesn't really do anything that this model doesn't. As such, this was a no-brainer.
Easy to program, and doesn't seem to reduce the water pressure. Wish I would have bought this long time ago.

Love it. Good for watering two areas.. Have it set to water the side of my house every AM. Keeps the sunny side green. Easy to program, Batteries going on a month now. Only bad part is I have three different garden hoses weaving all over my yard. But worth the trouble.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neuf350Z Good timer
It's a pain to have to get up early in the morning to water the lawn, so I bought one of these timers to take care of that chore. I'm not ready to invest in an irrigation system so this is a good way to get the lawn watered until then.
While it does what it's supposed to do, I have encountered the leaking problem that others have faced. This problem was solved using Teflon tape, so keep that in mind if you buy this timer. I've also found that the current time is not always correct. For example, I have it set to water at 7pm, according to my watch. When I don't hear the water turn on at 7, I check it and the time is now three minutes slow. This happens a lot.
I wish the unit allowed you to pick specific times when you want it to turn on. Instead, you're left to the number of hours between each watering. I'd like to water in the morning at 4, but then my second watering would have to be at 4pm because the max. choice is 12 hours.
Despite the cons, it does what it needs to do.
