Answer: 
No. If you know irbid going to rain or it has rained sufficiently so that you want to skip an automatic cycle or two, you select how many hours you want to delay the automatic cycle from starting again. For example if you know it is going to rain the next two day, you set the rain delay to 48 hours and automatic cycle will not start until 48 hours has elapsed.

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.

It cannot automatically detect rain. You have to press the + button to turn on the rain delay. Here is the text from their manual.
RAIN DELAY
■ When in AUTO, press + button for 24 hrs,
48 hrs, or 72 hrs.
■ Screen will flash between clock and hours
remaining before programmed cycle resumes.
■ To remove rain delay, turn dial to OFF and then
back to AUTO.

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.

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.

Answer: 
It depends on how it will be used and installed as It is simply a valve that is either fully open or fully closed. If installed in a vertical position (as shown above) input water will merely flow through the Timer when it is in the "Open" position.

The timer has an internal valve which is opened mechanically at the set time and day. I would expect water would flow freely through the valve but water pressure would be determined by the height difference from source to outlet.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 217 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by These things Won't Even Last One Season I have used these Orbit timers at two different houses for the last three summers. Their functionality and ease of use is very good, but the quality is terrible. I have had a few that don't even last for one summer and about 90% fail after one season. In my opinion if you are looking for a timer, run don't walk away from these things and go find yourself a timer from another manufacture. September 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, saved me a lot of time and money! This timer is extremely easy to use. The programing is very easy. It does not use days of the week like earlier Orbit timers, it uses frequency setting in hours or days. I used every two days, so I do not have a left over day at the end of the week, like the old style does. The display needs to point up toward the operator. I bought a brass 45 degree elbow adapter and found I needed to mount it to the bottom of the timer, that kept the display tilted up toward me, but routed the irrigation hose straight down (I used the timer for a drip irrigation system). The battery tray is hard to use in the back of the timer, I will remove it from the hose bib to replace the batteries. Great product, saved me a bunch of work to install a wired timer (did not have A/C anywhere near my water service line. Great product! September 6, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Item works as expected The setup was easy, timer was dead on, and the price was a little high. The only problem was the unit was fitted with 2 gaskets. One regular, and a second with a screen. When attached to the faucet the swivel leaked causing a lot of wasted water. I removed the inner gasket and it sealed properly. August 30, 2016
