Answer: 
The transformer needs to be plugged into any 110 volt outlet to supply the necessary 24 volts to the controller. The wire that came with mine was to short but it was very easy to cut the power wire and splice in a longer piece of wire.

My garden is quite some distance from the house. Will this unit run on batteries only, or does it need 110 v. constantly? I don't want to run a power cord (plus 4 water hoses) that far....

Answer: 
No, this device must be connected to standard electrical outlet for running. The batteries are used to retain the program in memory during power loss.

Answer: 
For this particular timer, you would need that constant connection (batteries wouldn't be enough). Another option you may want to consider is the Orbit 57860, which is a battery-operated timer specifically for typical underground sprinkler systems. You can also purchase extra solenoids (Orbit 57863), so you can run up to four valves on one timer. As a word of warning, the 57860 is available through Home Read More

Answer: 
If you have an old time... then replace the wires one at a time. There is a common wire and then one wire for each zone. The wires are fasten by a simple screw that tightens on the wire.

Answer: 
If the valve has 4 wires it is likely not compatible with our timer. Valves (solenoids) usually have two wires. One wire is connected to the station and the other to the "common" wire. For detailed wiring information, please see the instruction/installation guides found on this page, or contact Orbit at 800-488-6156.

Answer: 
It's not waterproof. I have mine hanging on my fence above the sprinkler valves. I use a ziplock bag to waterproof it. (yeah, I know, not professional looking---but functional) You can operate the controls through the plastic and see the display quite easily. If the bag gets too old, just throw it away and use a new one. BTW, the screw you use to hang it on can easily form around the screw so you don't Read More

If the bag gets too old, just throw it away and use a new one. BTW, the screw you use to hang it on can easily form around the screw so you don't puncture the ziplock for a secure seal. Also the AC wire and the solenoid wires can be moved to the edge so the ziplock closes most of the way. If the wires are at the bottom, doubt if you'll get any water inside---if in doubt, use some Goop to seal. Read Less

This cannot be used outdoors on it's own. However, by using the Orbit Outdoor Timer Box (#100158884), it will.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Simple to install and set up. Easy to program, works great! May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 4-station easy-dial electrical sprinkler timer It was totally useless. It leaked worse than any hose I ever had. I also don't think it is worth $25 if it did work! March 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sprinkler Times Very easy to install, took less that 1/2 hour as replacement. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Too easy to install... Had a $70 Hunter X-Core that went bad after just one year. They have a 2 year warranty FROM DATE OF MANUFACTURE. Found out mine was over a year old before it was installed, so I looked around and found this one. I only have 4 zones so it was perfect. The Hunter had separate screw terminals for zone wires and power. This has push in terminals for the zones and a plastic plug for the power. Had it running in less than 10 minutes. I figured if the controllers won't last very long (all made in China anyway) why not spend $20 to replace? Wait, this one has a 6 year warranty? Winning! No mounting screws so make sure you have some along with drywall anchors. Orbit makes indoor/outdoor and more zone models as well. I like it. Happy. September 13, 2013
