Answer: 
The rain delay is manual. If it rains and you figure that you don't need the timer to come on for its regular schedule, you can go to the timer and program it to delay for 1, 2 or 3 days.

No, it doesn't automatically detect rain (that sure would be nice, though!). If you know there is rain in the forecast, you can simply push the "+" button on the unit. This will delay the timer's cycle for 24hrs, essentially skipping the next cycle. And if the weatherman was wrong, you can simply cancel the delay.

Answer: 
On this timer there is not a sensor. It is a function which you, the user, would set in the case of rain. You can tell the timer how long to delay watering. The usefulness of this is that once you set the rain delay you do not need to remember to return and turn the timer back on. It just delays the schedule for a specific amount of time, which you set.

Answer: 
If your water pressure is above 80PSI, yes. The timer is only good for 90 or 100psi. I broke 2 of these timers because my water pressure was 110psi. Opening the faucet 10-20% of the way worked for a short period of time. I found an "RV" water pressure regulator that is brass/metal that reduces the water pressure that i put on the faucet.

Answer: 
I believe that the timer will handle normal house pressure, probably up to about 100 pounds. I have about 80 on mine with no issues. A pressure regulator may reduce the distance that your sprinkler reaches.

Answer: 
In my opinion, if your water pressure is much over 60 psi, I'd get a regulator. The valve in this unit slams completely open and shut when working. It's quite a jolt on the unit at 60 psi, and I think it would be pretty hard on the unit at anything higher. Most valves for homes are rated for operating pressures less than 60 or so.

Nish, there is a battery-shaped icon that will appear on the bottom-right corner of the display screen when the battery is low. The timer will not turn on once the batteries get to the point where they combine to supply less than 2.5V of power.

tess, this timer will work with sprinklers that attach to standard garden hoses. If you're looking for a timer that will connect to underground irrigation sprinklers, you'll need something more along the lines of the Orbit 57894 model.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 201 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy and no issues Waited a few months of continual use before posting a review, as concerned about other reviewers stating this timer stopped working after a short period of time. I am happy to report that using this timer to water newly planted grass while traveling a lot, the timer never failed to perform as programmed for the last 3 months. Easily switches to manual mode without altering the programming to wash cars or any other ad-hoc needs. Also easy to skip a period of time if it has recently rained. My timer is exposed to sun all morning and there is no sign of the hard plastic or the display suffering as yet. June 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THEY WORK ! I have used these for years and recommend them highly. I am not paid for this review, but I will tell you that they work reliably, consistently and when I had one fail after 3 years the company sent me a new one, no hassle, bo trouble. Every product can & may fail at some time. What is important is if the company stands behind their product. Orbit does that. You can not ask for more than that. Orbit makes a great hose end timer. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cuts the water pressure to nothing I purchased several of these to run the drippie system and sprinklers while I was out of town. Every single one of them cuts the water pressure down to where the drippies barely work, and the sprinklers only spit water. FYI: I have a 25GPM well and a 1.5 horse pump with a ton of pressure. Somebody please design one that won't cut down the pressure!!!! July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Single dial timer So far so good. Sturdy unit. Works very well. Easy to program and set. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Or it finally fixed their timer pressure issue I've been using these new orbit timers for about a year now and they have function well they take about a 110 pounds of water pressure which is what they need to do because most residential lines coming to the house at 125 pounds before their reduced to the line of 40 pounds in the inside of the house . In essence you can connect 15 sprinkler heads to each line if you have at least 120 pounds pressure that's why it's essential that these valves are able to take normal Street line pressure so far great very excited because I get maximum coverage per timer and they work. And reliability is important because I just can't go to the local Home Depot I live in Costa Rica and can find these timers anywhere. June 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by I think a bit pricey, but no alternatives I have about a dozen of these. I've learned how to take them apart and clean the diaphragm. Even with 2 very fine filters on my irrigation system, some sediment does get thru and then wont let the diaphragm close at all. Not covered under warranty. Easy to program and use. I have quit using any filtering screens at the connection since it didn't seem to matter and I had to clean them about every day to keep up a good flow. TAKE THE BATTERIES OUT when done for the season, otherwise it will corrode June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great timer for the price This is the second that i have purchased. Left the first one on the hose during winter so it froze and broke. Very easy to set up and operate. Saves lots of time from watering by hand. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product failure I purchased this product well in advance of our summer vacation so that I could have some confidence that it would function well enough to maintain the plants in our landscape during our trip. I am glad I did. After 3 weeks the unit quit activating in both program and manual mode. I am returning the unit this morning. July 11, 2016
