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.

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. Please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156 if you have any questions at all, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

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.

The timer is nothing more than a valve on a timer. It does not require a certain amount of water pressure to function. You would get the same flow through the timer valve as you would a similar sized hose.
However, depending on how much irrigation hose and outlets you have, your system may require more pressure than your gravity feed system is currently able to supply. If it is possible, you can raise Read More

Think of it as a faucet with a timer to open and close the water way. For a drip system you will need a minimum amount of pressure in order to have the proper amount of water flow.

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.

Hi Gil. If you are installing a drip irrigation system, the pressure regulator would be installed on the outlet of the timer. The timer can withstand up to 120 PSI.
