Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TKDLethal 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by k4zmb 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappycustomer 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!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by john 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by skpydog 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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hals 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob 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.
