Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MG Don't buy. Don't last.
Since I am responsible to keep new lawn installations wet at work I have purchased a number of these. Most fail, typically within the first month of use. There are better timers out there for the roughly the same $.

After 3 weeks this device stopped working. The Home Depot website is very challenging.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bijou12 OK for a season or 2
I have bought 4 or 5 of these over the last 10 years. They are great until they get jammed and stop working. They usually work for 2 years of spring and summer use; sometimes less sometimes more. The one I bought this spring only lasted 2 weeks. I took it back and tried a different brand hoping I can get more working time out of a different brand. I don't know if I will get the same problem in a different brand because of the low price point of these timers, but here is hoping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EMANON Great for saving you water
This is a wonderful water timer. I will start to water our hanging plant, deck plants, add water to the fish ponds, or fill our swimming pool with water and forget about the hose being on. So, I do over water or over fill the pool and ponds. This wonderful Mechanical water timer has saved me money and water. And has stopped my husband from being upset with me for wasting water. I have told many of our friends about this great timer. Hope this note will help someone out there that has my same problem as I did. I have bought a few more and use one of them to add water to our chickens water. I have also given them as gifts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Al Wickam bought the timer 4-5 months ago , it quit working , would not shut off. Luckily I noticed my Koi pond was getting too full, if I had not shut it off manually it would have killed the fish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nogg Great for watering the lawn.
I'm going into my second summer with this. The attachments are a bit flimsy so don't pull with the garden hose! I use this with a sweep-style water sprinkler and it allows plenty of pressure for a large sweep. The hassle with watering the lawn was remembering to turn the water off. This completely eliminates that issue by turning the water off when you want. Has proven very reliable and I've had no problems with the timer sticking. It also has a manual setting that turns on the water flow and leaves it on. It would also work well with a drip watering system if you don't want a programmable timer. This might be the best watering-tool investment that I've ever made! It makes me happy every time I use it.
