Answer: 
Yes, it uses 2 "AA" batteries. I removed it and brought in the house and forgot to take the batteries out and it's still keeping time today on the same batteries I put in it last year. It is very dependable and I've had no problems all season last year.

Answer: 
Each zone has only one duration setting (say 60 minutes) but the unit can run up to three cycles per day. You can't run two zones in the morning and the other two in the evening, nor can you run all four zones for 60 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening.

10.5 in. Automatic Yard Watering Kit-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product; wish I discovered it earlier I bought 2 of these plus the extra valves - one for the front yard and one for the back yard. Simple programming and once you understand the product limitations, works like a dream. The key thing is that all stations have to follow the same day watering schedule but you can change the time on each station. I have 2 valves set up for watering the lawn and 2 set up for drip systems and once they are set up, you literally can forget about them. For a very low cost per setup(including the 2 extra valves), you are getting the majority of the benefits of an in -ground sprinkler system. Big time saver, efficient watering times. Plus, a 6 year warranty on a $50 product! Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had a Orbits ( 4 station ) for 6 years. The new one is much easier to program. The new Orbits 4station is so easy to program and set up. I've had 4stations set up in my back yard for 6 years now. I bought the new one because the valves on the old one where leaking and the screen was hard to read. It still works and I'll use it for 2stations out front. I was very pleased at the new programming format. It's very easy. I have good hoses running along the bricks in my flower beds and a few underground about 1inch to areas with no borders. This work great and I never have to move hoses or remember to turn the water on or off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Grass Is Greener This is a great timer and wish I known about it earlier in the season. My lawn around the house was brown and patchy in spots and other areas was growning faster. I would water the lawn but either forget to turn the water on or worse I forget to turn it off and flood mine and my neighbor's yard. I am using a drip system and 4 pulsing sprinklers on spikes and dug out some of my old hoses out of the shed. I spaced the sprinklers out so it would cover the yard and with a pair of sissors and replacement ends for the hoses, I made custom length hoses so there isn't any extra hoses laying around. I set the timer for an hour for the drip system and 30 minutes for each of the 2 zones for the sprinklers. The fourth connector is used strickly for a hose with a fire man nozzle and with the valves on the end, I can use the hose anytime without disconnecting the timer.Now the lawn looks even and greener. If you're on a budget, and want an automatic sprinkler system, I would recomend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! This is our second season using this. It is 4-zone and only comes with 2 zone hook-ups so be sure to pay the extra $$ and buy the 2 additional. We found this out after we got everything set up and were attaching hoses. Other than that it's very reliable and easy to use. You can set up multiple schedules so if you want to water 1/2 your yard on Monday and Wednesday and the other half on Tues, Thurs and Sat then you can! Just pop the battery out at the end of the season and store. Ours gets put right on top of the hoses in a rubbermaid tub. I would have given it 5 stars if it had all 4 zones included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fair Warning I purchase this item at Home Depot after reading what I considered good reviews. Well I also thought that since this item is for outdoor use it would be somewhat weather proof. FAIR WARNING ... THIS ITEM IS NOT IN THE LEAST WEATHER PROOF! I set this timer up just before we went away to automatically water my vegetable garden. There was one rain storm that completely filled the control unit with water causing the water valve to remain open for many days. This device has totally destroyed my vegetable garden. As a result, the control unit was permanently destroyed as well. This unit is new and was only set up for three weeks when this happened. The water did not stop running until I turned it off with the valve manually. YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A FAIR WARNING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing my existing system - valves failing My existing irrigation system is 27 years old and the valves are failing one by one. Rather than replacing the system with another all in one controller and valves (expensive and difficult), I decided to use these Orbit 4 valve hose end units. My first unit was an add-on to irrigate a new raised bed - it worked great! This prompted me to install a second unit to tie into 2 dead circuits of the old system. This worked fine, but there is a caveat - the flow is reduced from the original system's rate (smaller openings in the brass hydrant) which entails increasing the length of time each circuit is on. I'm so pleased, that I'm replacing all the original system with the Orbit kits plus adding a few additional circuits for special purposes. In all, I will have an ultra flexible system that should be very reliable - I've had no problems thus far (the oldest unit is 2 years old). This is a great and easy to use product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good timer for up to 4 zones and three differnt time sets I do not have enough water pressure for all the areas that I need to water, back, front and vegetable garden. The unit was pretty easy to setup. It only comes with attachments for two zones. I had to purchase another. Home depot has the going price on the unit, but I found a better price for the additional attachment. Make sure you open the valves on the end to let the water flow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should go back to making quality- not plastic This is a great timer, works great and easy to set up. Problem is the plastic hookups. The first one, I had to return immediatly because it leaked at all of the connections. Being plastic- if I tighten them any more, than they are likely to break. The one I have now leaks a tiny bit (slow drip). MUCH better than the first. It's the only one that I can find like this on the market, so it's the best to use at the moment.
