Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yngdalf 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ET 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jtp10 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simon Accurate Leak Proof Garden Hose Timer
This 1-Port Garden Hose Timer is accurate, sturdy and absolutely leak proof and extremely easy to set and use. Because I utilize well water I have five (5) of these timers controlling water flow to soaker hoses around trees and serving sprinklers for lawn each set at different times and duration depending on need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Still going
I bought one of these when I bought my house 6 years ago. It's still going! Hopefully HD will not stop carrying it. Like the seem to do. It takes one aa battery, which will last a couple years.
So far, the manufacturer has not "improved" it. So get a few before they do.
